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

I feel so motivated after talking to my adviser. She really helps me to understand what needs to be done and how to make it really fun for the kids. What I really like is the tips that she gives me for dealing with the little ones while trying to school the older ones. I really feel that on my own I would have just been lost in the sea of information out

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

I have been homeschooling with STAA since 2003 and loved it. My questions are answered quickly and personally - I am a Mom and Family member, not just a "case number."

What is the single best thing about your experience with STAA?

It has been truly a blessing to be associated with STAA since 1996. STAA has helped us to provide our family with a superior, solid, Catholic education. When we joined the STAA family our children were in 2nd and 3rd grades. Currently they are in 5th, 9th, and 10th grades. Throughout the years the staff at STAA has taken the

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.

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 started homeschooling when our oldest was in Kindergarten. We started with a very traditional homeschooling curriculum with all the lesson plans and texts sent to us. My oldest son and I struggled through the first two years of his schooling battling over completing exactly what the lesson plans suggested. It was a

Thanks for a great year, as always, we love all the materials we have used and look forward to another year!

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! 

Dear Friends, I would like to share with you why we keep going back to S.T.A.A. We have 11 living children and 3 in Jesus arms. I will use this program on all of the ones in our arms! S.T.A.A.

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.
