Read what member families have said about their St. Thomas Aquinas Academy homeschooling experience.

I especially appreciate the advice and wise counsel I receive from the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy staff during our phone appointments and their understanding of my children's needs.

When we first decided to homeschool, we'd been told our son (who has auditory processing issues) should repeat preschool since he had a difficult time absorbing material and because he couldn't print his name "small enough for kindergarten". What we saw was a bright boy who would need one-on-one instruction. We knew we

I have been homeschooling with STAA since 2003 and loved it. My questions are answered quickly and personally - I am a Mom and Family member, not just a "case number."

What is the single best thing about your experience with STAA?

God bless you for the job you are doing -- the peace you have helped us find as a family is priceless!

We are now going into our third year with STAA. We have a third grader, second grader and a kindergartner  STAA has more then met our expectations as home schooling parents. The assessments give us great confidence that our children's education is going in the right direction and their academic weaknesses are being

Dear Friends, I would like to share with you why we keep going back to S.T.A.A. We have 11 living children and 3 in Jesus arms. I will use this program on all of the ones in our arms! S.T.A.A. Has been a True Blessing to our family! I get individual counseling on each child I enroll into S.T.A.A. Believe me each one of our children are different and I

[My ninth grade daughter] and I started "Art & Music, B Track" yesterday and although there was a blizzard outside we were warm and cozy inside laughing and enjoying the art of the borrowed material from the art gallery. We had such a great time at dinner she told dad how much fun school was today and I thought: "Thank you, God, this is priceless." 

School and fun? Who ever heard of such a thing?

I will be signing up for next year soon.

My son just completed the 9th grade. This is our first year with STAA. I was very pleased with the help and especially the time and support given to my son and myself.

Our family has been using St. Thomas Aquinas Academy for 8 years.

My advisor helps me to understand what needs to be done and how to make it really fun for the kids. What I really like are the tips she gives me for dealing with the little ones while trying to school the older ones.

The assessment testing was quick and easy to do, so I didn't expect much valuable feedback. Boy was I wrong!!! It was like my advisor had met my kids and spent hours/days with them.

Our family so enjoyed our wonderful relationship with STAA as our [son] worked his way through high school. It was a wonderful and outstanding experience for him and we continue to suggest your program to all those who are looking for an excellent homeschool experience.

Since I am writing, I will also sing more praises of the Greek Studies plan. [My daughter] moaned over the timed-essay and then did very well. So easy to implement with the choose one reflection topic from each subject and then get ready, get set, go! Apparently the school also gave suggestions for the process essay in "Format Writing." Thank you! For a mom of many this is real time saver.
