There are a variety of ways to become involved and give back to the community at Saint Thomas Academy. Previous projects have included: an annual service trip to Guatemala, the American Red Cross Blood Drive, Neighborhood clean-ups, and many more.
In partnership with the American Red Cross, Saint Thomas Academy students have the opportunity to work the drive, or give blood to help those in need.
By becoming involved in campus ministry, students have the opportunity to serve as an Eucharistic Minister, Mass server, reader, and musician.
More recently, students in Military Leadership 3, have been able to go to Crosby Farm Regional Park and assist in removing invasive species, like the Garlic Mustard plant.

Community Service has been a huge part of my Saint Thomas Academy experience. I have been challenged to do things that are rather outside of my comfort zone, and contribute positively to the community. Becoming involved in community service is a decision that I have not regretted."
