Student Support Services Mission

The mission of Saint Thomas Academy’s Student Services Department is to provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program to meet the academic, personal/social needs of our students. Members of the Student Services department advocate for students and support them throughout their middle and high school career while preparing them for post-secondary plans.  Department members help students maximize their academic achievement while acknowledging every student’s individual uniqueness.  Partnering with educators, parents/guardians, and the community, department members strive to ensure all students at STA develop the skills, knowledge, and understanding necessary to be successful in their future endeavors.

The role of the learning specialist:
Saint Thomas Academy's learning specialists play a crucial role at the Academy by providing specialized support and guidance to students with learning differences. Our learning specialists develop and implement learning plans outlining specific approved accommodations tailored to each student's unique learning profile. The learning specialists collaborate with teachers, administrators, and parents to ensure students receive the support they need to reach their greatest potential. 

The role of the school counselor:
At the core of the Saint Thomas Academy mission statement is the development of healthy, well-rounded young men who are holistically prepared to be leaders in the world community. The counseling department promotes services which foster emotional health and personal growth, prepares students for post-secondary life, and supports them in coping with difficulties which might adversely impact their academic progress and personal development.
