Testimonials

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

May God bless you for the incredible help you have provided!

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.

On two different occasions this past week when I’ve been in conversation with [my 11th grader], she has expressed deep gratitude for STAA and homeschool. She has cited several concrete examples of how going through your curriculum has shaped her and has made her a better Catholic. As a mother accompanying my children on this journey, I call out in resounding agreement!

We received our welcome packet promptly and my first conversation with someone about enrollment is what convinced me you all were the best choice of all the schools we were looking at.

(first year family; four students)

We love the programs STAA advises us to use. They bring excitement to learning, especially for the subjects which are not are our greatest ones. The advice given is suitable to our family and our lifestyle; it helps us bond. We appreciate the advice given for it is individually given for our children for certain subjects like religion, reading,

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

I have three children, a son: age 8 (entering 3rd grade), a daughter: age 6 (entering 1st grade), and a pre-pre-school son: age 3. Last year we were recommended to teach "The Morning Offering" prayer as part of their Religion requirement. Myself a convert, and even my husband, a "cradle Catholic," were unaware of this prayer,

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

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

STAA has truly been a Godsend to our family. Our advisor is always ready to help. She not only recommends the books for my boys, she helps me teach my perfectionist, prickly 3rd grader and my stubborn, but oh, so clever 1st grader with gentle and loving words of wisdom. She also offers advice on how to get it done with three more little ones running around under my feet! On days when I have really struggled with doubt and indecision she has lifted me up like a gentle hug from the Father. In his infinite mercy he has provided us with a constant source of encouragement and know-how to achieve the (often impossible) task he has set before us. Do not underestimate the importance of a Catholic program...Our goal is more souls for heaven and the restoration of the family as the basic unit of civilization...no secular home-school provider will be able to keep you centered on this goal...STAA DOES! Plus the curriculum choices are challenging, classical and flexible when they need to be (like a new addition to the family and mom is not 100% for a few months!) I can't say enough about STAA . May God continue to bless this family in their apostolate.

My advisor helps me to understand what needs to be done and how to make it really fun for the kids. What I really like are the tips she gives me for dealing with the little ones while trying to school the older ones.

This is our first year homeschooling. STAA and [our advisor] have made this a very easy transition. We have had a great year!

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.

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.
