A Letter From The President: 


Welcome to the Fathers’ Club

The Fathers’ Club is an organization that includes all fathers and guardians of STA cadets. By the nature of your son attending Saint Thomas Academy, you are part of the Club! The primary mission of the Fathers’ Club is to support the faculty and staff in fulfilling the mission of the school – helping our boys develop into young men of character. We do this by demonstrating faith, leadership and service, being involved in the boy’s school life where and when we can and supporting the activities and interests of our sons and those of their Academy brothers. Our goal is to do that while getting to know the other dads at the school and occasionally having a good time ourselves…

We can use your help! We are involved many activities at the school throughout the year. Reach out to me or to any of the fathers on the team to ask about how you can get involved. We are looking forward to getting to know you and your son.

John Gainor
2021-2022 President

Annual Fathers' Club Awards:

Meet our Advisory Board Members & Class Reps!

We welcome all fathers who would like to participate in the Fathers’ Club planning team. We have a number of events that are chaired by dads that could use a co-chair to help out and to learn the role. We would also like each class to have several Class Reps, whose role is to engage with their son’s class to encourage class spirit and involvement in activities. Think about joining the team!
