Student Life

Our school culture endorses and expresses authentic Christian love, the fullest excellence of the human person without which, as St. Paul reminds us, we have nothing.  Following St. Francis, we bid peace and all good to all in our learning community.  Derogation, harassment, and bullying have no place at STMA.

The Academy Graduate

“If we want to have a good society,” said St. John Bosco, “we must concentrate all our forces on the Christian education of the young.”  The Academy’s founder Robert Luddy expresses outcomes that we earnestly aim for in the school.  With a strong work ethic and well-formed aspirations, striving to be healthy in mind, body, and spirit, our graduates exemplify American values and entrepreneurialism.  They learn to prize virtuous leadership, well-developed judgment, self-reliance, and continuous learning.  They possess strong communication and technical skills, find the best solutions to challenges, and cooperate and contribute to common projects.  Our students finish their studies as persons of unfailing gratitude and integrity, as critical thinkers who are ordered to truth and problem solving.  As Julian Simon says, “the ultimate resource is people—especially skilled, spirited, and hopeful young people endowed with liberty.”
