    "I am a rising junior at STMA. I absolutely love this school. The academics are certainly challenging, but all of the classes are interesting. The classes, especially the electives, are very diverse. The teachers are almost always willing to give extra help whenever it is needed, and they seem to genuinely care about the students. STMA is also a very safe, loving place unlike many public schools. I have never felt like I was in any danger while in school. The students are friendly, happy, and welcoming. This is also a very Catholic school. Almost all of the classes tie back into our Catholic faith in some way. One of the things I love is the chapel. There is morning prayer every day, Adoration once a week, and Benediction once a month. You can also just visit the chapel anytime throughout the day. I would definitely recommend this school to others, especially Catholics. The wonderful environment is something that is truly different than many other schools."

    "I enjoyed my time at STMA. My teachers were fantastic, and I found most, if not all, of the classes I took to be interesting and engaging. The academics are excellent, and it really shows in the school's stellar college placement results. The facilities are relatively new, and are perfectly serviceable. If you can afford the tuition, this school is worth every penny. The only reason I don't give my school five stars is the students themselves. They are in general very kind, but the school tends to attract a certain type of very conservative, socially awkward homeschooler from somewhere in Wake Forest. There's nothing wrong with this per se, but if this is not you, it can be frustrating at times. Not everyone is like this. There are perfectly normal people at STMA, but awkward homeschoolers make up a large percentage of the student body. Overall STMA was pretty cool to go to. The best part was the teachers. They are some of the smartest, most passionate people I've ever met."

    "STMA offers a great learning environment, with a strong academic curriculum, an attentive and professional faculty, and ample opportunities for students to grow in the Catholic faith and their human formation. In regards to the faith aspect, we have morning prayer daily, Mass once a week, and First-Friday Adoration and Benediction once a month. We also celebrate various feast days throughout the year. One of the most helpful things about this school is the availability of the teachers, and being able to receive extra assistance during office hours. Most of the teachers are well-prepared professionals who enjoy teaching, and strive to prepare students from all backgrounds for college. Students can also participate in a variety of clubs. A few include Science Olympiad, Photography, and Swing-Dance, which are primarily student-run, with teacher supervision."

    "I'm currently a sophomore at St. Thomas More Academy. The best aspect of STMA is most definitely the teachers. They are able to challenge every student and genuinely care about the well-being of each."

    "St. Thomas More Academy is a very positive environment with strong academics based around intense Catholic religious views. It is a very loving environment being only made up of 220 students. The teachers have a difficult curriculum but are heavily involved in the students academic lives. The small class sizes make it very discussion based where there are lectures followed by class discussion. STMA's goal is to prepare its students as best as possible for college. A mission of the school is charity which flows throughout each of the students and teachers. It is a great school with a great community feel. The only downside is that it is an immensely small school for children who are typically homeschooled which at times makes for a somewhat awkward environment."
