St. Thomas More School is a fully accredited college preparatory school for boys with a structured, disciplined approach to learning. Small class sizes allow students to benefit from individual attention from devoted teachers.

floor has a student lounge where students can relax, make food and watch television during their free time. Dorm parents oversee dorm activities, residential life curriculum
