We want to help you find the best place for your child to grow.

What sort of education do you want for your child? What sort of future do you want? It isn’t easy to answer those questions, but the answers really matter. And the school you choose can make a real difference.

We invite you to take some time to see what we believe in, see what we believe is important, and visit our school.

"We are about to send our third child to St. Thomas and couldn't be happier with the school.  We think of St. Thomas as family where our children have friends in every grade, mostly due to the "Book Buddy" program.  Respect, the importance of education, a strong sense of community, and the presence of God in our lives are all promoted throughout the school and in the classrooms.  The experience and education our children gain, while attending St. Thomas School, will always stay with them."
