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)

Principal Note

Dear Parents of STA Catholic Academy Students,

     The 2014-2015 school year marks a new chapter in the dynamic narrative of St. Thomas the Apostle School.  On the first Friday of September (9-5-14) Bishop Paul Sanchez will visit us to celebrate the 9:00 a.m. Mass as we officially open ST. THOMAS THE APOSTLE CATHOLIC ACADEMY.  Following the Mass, 87th Street will be closed to traffic during a dedication ceremony in front of the school.  Your presence will affirm the importance of Catholic education at STA. 

     The Board, the Faculty, the Staff and I have devoted ourselves to preparation for a purposeful school year.  We commit ourselves to collaborating with you as your children develop spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and socially.    The first day for students is Wednesday, September 3rd.  On Wednesday, September 10th at 7 p.m. you are asked to attend Back-to-School Night for Parents.  Teachers and Parents will have the opportunity to meet as the year begins.  I look forward to seeing you there.


Joseph W. Carpenter, Principal


School News and Announcements

  • Our annual walkathon was a success!
    Saint Thomas the Apostle Catholic Academy held their annual Walkathon on Friday, October 10th.  The Walkathon was a huge success and a fun day for all!  Our 4-8 grade students, faculty and volunteers walked through the streets of Woodhaven and ended the Walkathon with a barbeque at Forest Park.  The Nursery through 3rd grade students enjoyed a Subway sandwich picnic and an afternoon at the movies.  Thanks to the 102 precinct, their presence helped make this a safe and fun event.  A special thank you to the wonderful volunteers for all of their hard work setting up, cleaning up and for making it a great day!
