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's Message

Dear Parents & Friends,

We are entering the final semester of the 2014-15 school year and everyone at STACA is very busy. 

  • Students in grades 4, 6 and 8 will complete the ELA and Math State exams in April and the State Science exams in May.
  • Our 2nd graders will receive their First Holy Communion on Saturday, May 2 at 10 a.m.
  • The beautiful tradition of crowning Mary will take place in early May.  Details to follow.
  • The young ladies in our 6th, 7th and 8th grades are looking forward to competing with students throughout the Diocese at the Annual Mary Louis Academy H.S. Academic Competition.
  • In mid-May Mr. Matruski’s science students will present a Science Fair featuring the best projects completed this year.
  • Our 8th graders will host two fundraisers – Hang Out Night and Hula Night – to raise funds to offset the expense of their class trip.
  • The faculty members will attend a Professional Development Day to receive the latest training for our new Chrome Books.
May is a particularly challenging month.  I am confident that our students and teachers are up to the tasks.
