Summary: The goal for each student at St. Thomas More School is to find his potential and maximize it. Our college preparatory program provides the necessary academic training for our graduates to succeed at the next level. What makes St. Thomas More unique is our approach. We provide an environment of structure, learning and trust. Our students are met with a challenging curriculum and are required to work hard, but they are not expected to do it alone. From the moment they step on campus, they are provided with small classes, individual attention, a devoted faculty and a strong support system. They discover the importance of asking questions and seeking guidance in order to achieve success. Our students learn better note-taking skills and improved studying techniques, and our teachers instill in them sound work habits through extra help and evening study hall. The requisite course load, along with structure and time management training, prepares students for what awaits them in college. St. Thomas More School's talented faculty members are committed to the achievement of their students and motivate each of them to reach their greatest potential.

Summary: The campus has three large, two-story, dormitories (Edmunds Dorm, Kennedy Dorm and Benedict's Dorm). Together, they house 210 students along with faculty members (dorm parents) and their families. Students are assigned rooms and roommates based on age and grade level. The majority of the rooms are double occupancy rooms.
Dorm parents oversee dorm activities, the residential life curriculum and serve as an adult mentor for the students. Dorm parents are available to the students during the nighttime hours.
Each dorm floor has Resident Assistants (RA's) students, who are selected by the faculty to serve as mentors, role models, friends and floor monitors. All RA's go through a comprehensive, year-long, training process and are overseen by a senior faculty member. These student leaders help the dorm parents maintain a positive, familial dorm environment.
Each dorm floor has a student lounge where students can relax, make food and watch television during their free time.
