Read what member families have said about their St. Thomas Aquinas Academy homeschooling experience.
We have only just enrolled our 6th grade daughter with STAA for the 06-07 year. At this time, I cannot comment on the effectiveness of STAA methods nor advisors etc… So far, though, I am impressed with the assessment tests and the “quick conference” my advisor afforded me before I attended a home school expo, just
I feel so motivated after talking to my adviser. She really helps me to understand what needs to be done and how to make it really fun for the kids. What I really like is the tips that she gives me for dealing with the little ones while trying to school the older ones. I really feel that on my own I would have just been lost in the sea of information out
We are now going into our third year with STAA. We have a third grader, second grader and a kindergartner STAA has more then met our expectations as home schooling parents.

STAA has truly been a Godsend to our family. Our advisor is always ready to help. She not only recommends the books for my boys, she helps me teach my perfectionist, prickly 3rd grader and my stubborn, but oh, so clever 1st grader with gentle and loving words of wisdom. She also offers advice on how to get it done with three more
We have 2 homeschoolers - ages 14 and 12. We have been homeschooling for 4 years. We have had great success with STAA. I can honestly say that our children have blossomed into well rounded individuals because of your program. We are encouraged to use a wide variety of teaching styles. We especially like reading many of our
The staff at the St. Thomas Aquinas Academy proved to be more helpful than I'd hoped for as I began homeschooling two years ago. My 7-year-old son has learning disabilities (part of my reason for homeschooling) and every recommendation from STAA has been exceptionally on target. My son is now at grade level (or above) in all
St. Thomas has helped our family in structuring our time. We were organized I thought but to the overdo point of schooling doing every subject, every day.
