Welcome to the Saint Thomas Academy Fathers’ Club

You've chosen Saint Thomas Academy for him, but what memories will you make over with your 4+ years at Saint Thomas Academy?

The Fathers’ Club is an organization that includes all fathers and guardians of Saint Thomas Academy Cadets. By the nature of your son attending Saint Thomas Academy, you are a member of the Fathers' Club! 

Our theme this year is "For Him, For Me, For Us" as a reminder of how we, as fathers/guardians, can get the most out our experience and help our boys develop into young men of character:

"For Him" - we want to show him how to give back to his community while having a good time.  The Fathers' Club creates opportunities for us to show our boys how to give back to their communities through service to others.  Whether it is sharing your skills as a "Grillmaster" cooking burgers at our team Spotlight events, parking cars at Military Ball, helping with Mother-Son Dance or a dozen other fun opportunities, every father can show how we need to be involved...and have fun doing it.

"For Me" - we also need to do things for ourselves.  The Fathers' Club is a great way to meet new friends and spend time with the other men of our community.  This includes fun evenings together at the Fall Kickoff, Hockey Night, the Fathers' Club Smoker or other times to be just be with the guys.  The annual Trivia Night is also a fun night for couples as well.

"For Us" - we want to grow our relationship with our boys.  Most of us will have only 4 years at Saint Thomas Academy with our boys and we need to make the most of them.  The Fathers' Club makes creates those opportunities to strengthen our relationships over time, including the Father-Son Banquet, First Friday Father/Son Mass, and other times together.  

We all have busy lives, but I hope you will make the most of your time at Saint Thomas Academy by getting involved in the 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.

2022-2023 Saint Thomas Academy Fathers' Club 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!
