ACADEMIC AWARDS

A private school education is an investment in your son’s future. The true value Saint Thomas Academy offers our students and their families is unmatched: outstanding faculty, small class sizes, an expansive and broad offering of clubs, activities and athletics, and most importantly, an environment that is as warm and welcoming as it is academically rigorous.  At Saint Thomas Academy, we are committed to developing boys into men of character. Our merit scholarships recognize students with personal commitment and academic promise.  

Saint Thomas Academy Academic Awards are an opportunity for us to recognize those deserving students from a variety of backgrounds that emulate our core values.
- Francie Reding, Director of Admissions
