About St. Thomas More Cathedral School

Our school is filled with energy, joy, creativity and high expectations.

At St. Thomas More, we celebrate the fact that we are a blue Ribbon school, as a result of the hard work and achievements of our students and teachers.  Our Blue Ribbon Award was received from the US  Department of Education in 2006.  This award recognizes that we have a challenging academic program.

Though we are the parish school for the Cathedral of St. Thomas More, our students come to STM throughout Arlington, as well as Alexandria, Fairfax County, the District of Colombia and Maryland.  The diverse backgrounds and experiences of our families contribute to the welcoming  spirit that you will find at STM.  We are committed to making Catholic education available to all Catholic families who seek it for their children.

About STM

St. Thomas More Cathedral School is a welcoming Catholic learning community serving over 300 students in preschool through grade 8. STM parents, teachers, administrators and staff are dedicated to helping each child reach his or her greatest potential. Students are challenged to develop a faith life rooted in prayer and Christian service and to meet high expectations for academic achievement. We are very proud to have received the 2006 No Child Left Behind Blue Ribbon School Award from the U.S. Department of Education. STM ranks among the top ten percent of all schools nationally in both Reading and Mathematics. To learn more about this award, view our application here.

Mission

Our mission is to nurture and develop the spiritual, academic, social, and emotional promise of each child in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church, rooted in Gospel values and led by the examples of the Master Teacher, Jesus Christ.

Philosophy of Learning

  • We believe learning is fostered in a safe, faith-filled nurturing environment.
  • We believe learning is a cooperative experience involving self motivation, peer assistance, teacher direction, and parent support.
  • We believe learning occurs most successfully in an atmosphere of acceptance and mutual respect that allows the student to question, to experiment, and to take risks while maintaining positive self-esteem.
  • We believe students have unique learning styles, talents, and abilities and each deserves the right to excel.
  • We believe all students need skilled, caring, and fair teachers who establish clear and reasonable expectations that challenge each student to reach his or her potential.
  • We believe in celebrating the diversity of our school and community, training all students to understand and appreciate the wider world of today while preparing them to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century.
  • We believe learning is a life-long endeavor bringing us closer to knowing God and understanding His world.
