Saint Thomas Academy, founded in 1885 by Archbishop John Ireland, is a Catholic, all-male, college-preparatory, military day school for students in grades 6-12. For over 130 years, the Academy community of faculty, parents and alumni has prepared young men in an environment influenced by the message of Jesus Christ to succeed in college and life. The Academy's tradition, discipline and spirit influence the life of a young man long after graduation.
The mission of Saint Thomas Academy is accomplished by:
• developing the intellectual, spiritual, moral and physical potential
of each young man.
• fostering the knowledge and practice of leadership so that a young man
has confidence in being a leader and in choosing which leader to follow.
By developing and nurturing each whole person and preparing students to be leaders with high ideals, Saint Thomas Academy graduates are young men prepared to succeed in college and in life.
