Welcome to Minnesota’s only All-Male, Catholic, College Prep, Middle School for Boys in Grades 6-8!

Mr. Jamie Jurkovich, Middle School Director

“Adding a 6th grade will complete our Middle School mission and give our students an even better preparation for their upper school education. Investing in a Saint Thomas Academy education allows boys to enter high school well-prepared to be outstanding students, and graduate with the skills to be successful university students and citizens.”

Changing Educational Landscape

Most Twin Cities area districts have shifted to K-5 and 6-8 middle school models over the last decade – creating a “gap” year for families interested in the Academy. We seek to eliminate the gap with this expansion of our Middle School.

Staffing & Curricula

STA has the staffing, curricular program, and space to enroll and welcome a sixth grade beginning in the fall of 2017.

We will offer a complete core education (English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Theology, and World Language) plus a rich selection of fine arts, electives, athletics, and activities. STA has a 1:1 iPad program, without an extra technology fee. In addition, while the STA Middle School is a “school-within-a- school,” – it has its own separate identity, including its own building, team of teachers, formations, Advisory Houses, and uniforms.

With the re-imagining of the STA Middle School, the Board of Trustees is differentiating the Middle School tuition from the Upper School tuition. Sixth grade tuition for 2017-18 will be $17,500 and seventh and eighth grade tuition will be frozen at the current levels of $21,100 for the next two years.
