Mission Statement & Philosophy

Mission Statement
 
St. Thomas More Catholic School provides excellence in elementary education. Together with parents, the school community fosters the spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical growth of the students. We exist to teach and guide children to live a Christ-centered life that embraces cultural diversity and is expressed in Christian leadership through service to others.
 
St. Thomas More received a full term of joint accreditation from the Western Catholic Educational Association and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
 
Statement of School Philosophy
 
We at St. Thomas More School participate in the church’s mission of education by providing a Catholic environment of Christian life and learning. We strive to integrate the gospel values into our daily lives and encourage our students to grow in their relationships with God, in their self-esteem and in their respect for one another.
 
Recognizing the uniqueness of each child, we strive to provide an educational program, which directs the students to become responsible individuals and to live full lives through the integration and sharing of Christian values, experiences and knowledge.
 
Acknowledging parents as the primary educators of their children, we assist by providing an environment that will nourish the faith development of each person.
 
Our purpose is to foster growth of the whole person. Through religious, intellectual, psychological, social, physical and aesthetic development, the full human potential of each individual may be attained.
