St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Academy is determined by a firm belief that every child can learn and fulfill his/her potential. Rooted in our belief that Christ is our center, we instill in the students that God loves us, accepts us always, and forgives completely. As Christian educators we commit ourselves to live in the spirit of the Gospel and create an environment where students are inspired to grow spiritually, morally, intellectually, personally, and socially. The school community of St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Academy encourages equality and a belief in the dignity of every person. All our efforts as Christian educators are based on the conviction that Christ is "the way, the truth, and the life." (John 14:6)
As we move into the new year, many exciting events are happening. First and foremost, Catholic Schools Week will kick off on Sunday, January 25th.
Our 8th graders received their TACHS test results and the majority were admitted to Catholic High Schools of their choice. Congratulations – they worked very hard!
Our Academy Board has been very busy fundraising for our school. They have contacted over 2,000 graduates asking them to support us financially and with their prayers.
Two school fundraisers are on the calendar!
Jan. 23 – Supermarket Bingo 88th Street cafeteria 7:00p.m.
Jan. 30 – Pasta Night 88th Street cafeteria 6:00p.m.
Finally, the 8th grade students will receive their school rings at the 9:00a.m. mass on Friday, January 30th. A reception for parents and family will follow.
