Read what member families have said about their St. Thomas Aquinas Academy homeschooling experience.
This is my second year with STAA, and the experience has been wonderful for our family. They helped me assess my children (ages 11 and 8), and helped me identify the reason for my son's reading problems so we could seek the right therapy for him. They recommended materials to teach with that were appropriate for my children, and
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.

We are starting our seventh year with STAA. First, the reason we use STAA is because of Divine Providence. Our family had been considering home education for quite a while when in the mail we received information regarding STAA, to this day we do not know how they got our name.

Oh, I can't wait to tell everyone how wonderful you are!

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.
We have recently enrolled as a new family, and just today, have sent back our completed assessments. I can say, up to this point, our experiences have all been consistently wonderful…just as we thought they would be! We are looking forward to our first school year with STAA!
I just have to tell you how much I have enjoyed this school year. This is our fifth year homeschooling and this is the FIRST YEAR I have not chucked half our curriculum during the Christmas break doldrums. I usually go through a big bout of self-doubt about my curriculum choices and worry we are not covering all we needed to. But this year I can
We have homeschooled with St. Thomas Aquinas Academy for six years, with one to four students (plus babies and toddlers) in any given year, from pre-first through seventh grade. STAA customizes the program to suit our individual needs, with the flexibility to change as our life's circumstances change. For instance, we have done
