Our Namesake and Our Inspiration
St. Thomas More was a lawyer and author who lived a life of scholarship and faith in 15th and 16th century England. He was martyred for his refusal of both King Henry VIII’s divorce from Catherine of Aragon in order to marry Anne Boleyn and the establishment of the king as the head of the Church of England, denying the primacy of the Pope. He was imprisoned over his conflict with the king, but remained dedicated to his letters and steadfast in his Catholic faith. At his execution, More famously told the gathered crowd that he was dying as “the king’s good servant-but God’s first.”- READ MORE
Meet our Staff
“St. Thomas More teaches students to express themselves while harnessing the unique power of the Mind, Body, and Spirit. Because of the size of our student body, St. Thomas More students have more opportunities to test their abilities in a wide range of subjects, clubs, sports, and other enrichment activities, increasing their engagement in school and cultivating skills they can utilize throughout their lives.”
The ordinary acts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest.- St. Thomas More
