Semester course plans and study tools for St. Thomas Aquinas Academy courses.

 

Study guides include weekly reading plans, assignments, reflection topics, and gradebooks. Access to graded, online quizzes and other online student supports are available to high school students enrolled in St. Thomas Aquinas Academy (see Annual Enrollment).

In addition to helping you select a personalized set of courses for your student, each school year your academic advisor will provide personalized recommendations for English Mechanics (punctuation, grammar, and penmanship studies to complement the composition/reasoning courses), Mathematics, Physical Education, Language, and Music Practice. Ordering and pacing notes for those recommendations are included in each student's Academic Packet.
 

We urge you to wait to order your student's study guides until after your planning appointment with your academic advisor.


Each high school student will need a 1) first-semester study guide, 2) second-semester study guide, and 3) science cycle booklet.  Each STAA Study Guide is approximately $39.95 USD plus shipping.  Individual course booklets, such as the science cycle booklets, are approximately $14.99 to $24.99 USD plus shipping.  The guides and booklets are printed on-demand when you place your order and are not returnable.  

The printer regularly offers discounts that can be applied to the study guide orders.  Before starting your order, visit the STAA Student Zone "Site News" forum to check for an active discount code.

  

The usual sequence of courses is prominently featured in the list below.  Variations on the order of science courses are also available.  Your STAA advisor will help you select the appropriate study guides.
