MIDDLE SCHOOL

STA believes learning happens by meeting and challenging students where they are and pushing them to continuously grow to become life-long learners.

The middle school program at St. Thomas the Apostle encourages academic excellence and leadership. The transition from elementary school to middle school marks a new set of expectations for students. STA’s middle school curriculum incorporates opportunities for students to improve their study, research and leadership skills. The rigorous curriculum builds upon the foundation established in grades K-5 and aims to prepare students for high school.
