Christian Excellence in Education

The finest traditions of classical Catholic education inspire St. Thomas More Academy’s unusually deep curriculum and engaging instruction. Highly talented faculty teach a wide range of  preparatory courses in humanities, mathematics, sciences, the arts, technology, agriculture, and outdoor skills. Students learn to read great books and solve problems; they learn to think critically through important ideas and present their own in quality writing. They also learn to serve through our active Service and Outreach program in Raleigh and surrounding communities.

Student Life at STMA

St. Thomas More Academy provides a Catholic environment that encourages students to answer the Church’s call to the New Evangelization. Entering the front doors students pass under our motto Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam (To the Greater Glory of God), and they encounter the Faith lived. There is a rich spirit of collegiality at STMA. Students pursue truth while remaining respectful of the opinions of others. This collegiality extends to the school’s non-Catholic students, all of whom are warmly welcomed as members of the STMA family.
