Starting at any new school is never easy. Starting at Saint Thomas Academy – one of the most prestigious, rigorous, challenging schools in the state – may be downright daunting.

Beyond the unfamiliarity with surroundings and social standards that accompany entry into any new school, many students just starting at the Academy also must adjust to an all-male student body, the elements of military leadership and Catholicism, and higher academic expectations.

Fortunately, dozens of caring adults on the Saint Thomas Academy faculty guide students to success and fulfillment. Here are some of their best tips and advice for new students, touching on several key topics.

In her third year at Saint Thomas Academy, Lisa Deyak teaches 9th and 10th grade English. Originally from Spring Green, WI, Deyak began coaching gymnastics and swimming at the age of 15. While continuing to coach, she began pursuing an architecture degree at the University of Minnesota.

“The parents of the kids I coached always encouraged me to be a teacher, as they said I was a good coach. So, I changed my major to English, and went on to get my master’s degree in education,” Deyak said. “I really enjoy teaching because I like getting to know the kids and working with their energy.”
