1. Boys learn differently from girls.
Teachers at Saint Thomas Academy understand how a boy learns and as a result, are successful in implementing expert teaching techniques to achieve optimal results.
2. The focus is 100% on boys.
Faculty and staff can focus exclusively on the needs and learning styles of boys. Boys grow and learn at a different pace than girls do.
3. The social pressures are less stressful.
Boys mature later than girls do and learning in a coeducational setting can cause added stress in early adolescent years. This is when a Saint Thomas Academy education can build confidence without the social distractions inherent in a mixed setting.
4. Activities and Athletics.
In a coeducational school, boys may shy away from joining activities, such as choir or orchestra. Breaking down the stereotypes for boys, is one of the things Saint Thomas Academy does well. Boys are competitive, and Saint Thomas Academy offers 15 different sports, 35 different teams and 40+ opportunities for co-curriculars. From golf, to football, to debate and Model UN.
5. Brotherhood for life.
Boys at Saint Thomas Academy learn the strong bonds of friendship, teamwork and a social interaction - which matter considerably later in life. Cadets continue the connections they make at the Academy throughout their lives.
