In a time where rigorous academics, and time-consuming after school activities give students a complex and demanding schedule at a young age, school counselor (grades 6th through 9th) Justin Larson has introduced a course to the Academy that focuses on giving all sixth graders the tools to be successful socially and emotionally.
Middle School student, Patrick Koegel, takes us on a tour of the Middle School at Saint Thomas Academy. We think he captured a day in the life of a middle schooler! Watch it here (you'll need an Instagram account to view).
Each boy at Saint Thomas Academy has a unique story, learn about who some of our boys are here!
When looking for where to go to school upon graduation from the Academy, there were no shortage of options for Isaac Hayes ‘12. As a standout football player for the Cadets and one of the country’s best offensive guards, Isaac earned scholarship opportunities from some of the nation’s top universities including the United States Military Academy at West Point, the Naval Academy, the Air Force Academy, Virginia Tech, and many more. Despite having many options, it was Coach Jerry Kill and the University of Minnesota that earned Isaac’s commitment. A respect for Coach Kill’s vision along with a desire to play in front of friends and family made this commitment an easy decision.
One reason for attending Saint Thomas Academy, perhaps THE reason, is to lay the foundation for success in the rest of your life. While the education and experience the Academy provides are invaluable in and of themselves, many Cadets and their families also find great value in how the school prepares its students for the future. For most, that future starts in college.
That’s where Director of College Counseling Norma Gutierrez and Associate Director Casey Erickson come in. As if that dynamic duo wanted to work 25-hour days, they have added classroom time this school year, welcoming 14 Cadets to the inaugural version of CollegeBound, an elective for juniors that offers everything from advice on conducting college searches, to preparation for SATs and ACTs, and an introduction to the common application.
We are very excited to announce our partnership with Training Hous and Steve Rosga. The Training Hous will lead our sports performance and conditioning programming, create in-class and before/after-school programs specifically for our boys, and work with SAGE Dining to establish an overall approach to nutrition education.
