About Us

Our Vision

Our Vision is to inspire students to be responsible, socially conscious, resilient, and personally successful in the rapidly changing 21st century, and to be a student-centered model for educational innovation. 

Our educational programs encourage students to learn through collaboration with family (home), our college and community. Students develop the resilience necessary to succeed in a rapidly changing world. Their education at St Thomas’ prepares them for lifelong learning, productive citizenship or service, and personal growth. 

Students learn in an innovative and professional environment fostered by the use of advanced learning methods and technology. Both staff and students understand the commitment necessary to implement a rigorous and relevant curriculum, one in which technology, standards, and skills development are embedded. 

Integrating education and technology has put St Thomas’ in a privileged position. In order to ensure justice, equity, and success for both students and staff, funding and access to technology are critical. PD in developing the skill levels of teachers for the purpose of using technology for teaching and learning is critical in our endeavors.
