The first thing one notices about St. Thomas More Academy is the joyful atmosphere. This is not an institution, but a community. From the fire pit, to the chicken coop and organic garden, and especially to the beautiful chapel now under renovation, there is a sense of freedom and engagement here that seems to visibly uplift the students – and the faculty.

Founded as an independent high school with the blessing of the local bishop in 2002, St. Thomas More Academy defines itself by the “Three C’s: Catholic, Classical, and College Preparatory.” Those elements are palpable in the daily life of the school. From the rhythms of prayer, Holy Mass, and Eucharistic Adoration, to the profound discussions and rigorous material in the classrooms, STMA is an oasis of faith and reason nestled inconspicuously among the office parks of North Raleigh.
