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

"We are having a great school year and I am so grateful for it!"

It was great speaking with you yesterday. Thank you so much for your advice and encouragement. I entered our meeting feeling discouraged and “wilted”, but felt refreshed and strengthened afterward.

Thanks for your genuine interest in my children. I never imagined that you could become so in tune with them from just a paper and pencil evaluation. I am amazed by the amount of information I learned about my girls and can't tell you how much it is appreciated! We are super excited to get started.

The staff at St. Thomas Aquinas Academy are like the interior designers of education. The school works as a team to accomplish for your family your specific ideas or needs for education but more importantly, what each individual in your family needs, even Mom. The advisors, through prayer and their vast knowledge of both Catholic and

Two years ago, after putting together my own curriculum for 6 years, I switched to STAA. It was the best decision I've made in 8 years of homeschooling! The STAA curriculum is wonderful, with excellent selections in all the subjects. Their choices - especially in history, grammar, math, and the fine arts - are often texts that I may

Since we are just now beginning, I don't know how much we could offer. I could share about how easy it is to use your website, to contact you all, and the overall professionalism and friendliness of the staff. Other than that, I'm not sure I could say anything further until we get this year underway. Again, I so much enjoyed speaking with you and

I feel so motivated after talking to my adviser. She really helps me to understand what needs to be done and how to make it really fun for the kids. What I really like is the tips that she gives me for dealing with the little ones while trying to school the older ones. I really feel that on my own I would have just been lost in the sea of information out

I really don't know what I would do without your kindness, and very helpful advice.  You are a blessing to our family.

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

We have always used our own "program" for our grade school children, but since they will want to go to college, we decided we needed something more formal for high school. Right now we have one child who will be a senior and one who will be starting 9th grade, plus two younger children. We chose STAA three years ago because we

Pat

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.

Mary Ellen

We have been so very happy with our first year with STAA! Thank you for walking me through it and for all the fantastic resources and materials we are using. There is not one we don't like!

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.
