College Placement

St. Thomas More Academy works with students and families to identify strong quality and affordable educational opportunities that fit expressed aspirations and demonstrated abilities. STMA’s advising is highly individualized and ordered to lasting value.

Dr. Noland’s junior College Workshop is STMA’s primary venue for the college discernment and advising process. Dr. Kirkpatrick also provides intensive support upon request during the senior year.

STMA’s graduates have been admitted to over 200 colleges and universities in the United States and abroad at all tiers of admissions challenge. Classes have achieved 100% four-year placement since 2004.

The student’s best outcomes are always top priority. As a college preparatory school STMA properly expects all seniors to qualify for and secure four-year admission, but we eagerly assist those who ultimately select alternative post-STMA paths.
