Centered around Christ and the Blessed Mother, St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School has been educating young minds and hearts for over 55 years. In 1964, STA opened its doors in the heart of Miami, Florida, and has grown exponentially since. STA offers a rigorous, dynamic, and faith-based education for children in grades Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade. The Tornado faculty and staff shares one common goal: to educate well-rounded and globally aware citizens, while simultaneously instilling a love of faith, God, and community. St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School is truly a special place. Teachers facilitate great academic instruction and enhance student development daily. Parents also consistently demonstrate active participation in their children's education. The most instrumental practice to achieving and supporting student success, however, is St. Thomas the Apostle's loving and unified community.
