“When I enrolled at Saint Thomas Academy, I was nervous about the military aspect. I didn’t know what purpose it served. Now as a senior, I know it has taught me valuable leadership and life skills and fostered a deep bond of brotherhood with my classmates that will last throughout my life.”   - Saint Thomas Academy student 

“There’s a lot of connection between grades, which is fostered by the military platoons where mentorship is encouraged. In their squads, they learn that everyone has a role, and value, even the freshmen. They can contribute even if they don’t have the same rank.”  - Faculty member
