Advanced Placement (AP)
 /  Advanced Placement (AP)

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is a rigorous academic program built on the commitment, passion, and hard work of students and educators. The AP Program enables students to take college level courses and exams and to earn college credit or placement while still in high school.

It is the mission of St. Thomas More’s AP Program to provide willing and academically prepared students the opportunity to participate in AP. In order to support this mission, the curriculum is designed to advance the student’s analytical thinking skills, writing abilities and knowledge in specific subject areas, not to strictly pass the AP test. Additionally, the rigorous instruction provided by the AP teacher will create a learning environment conducive to student success.

Standards for Admission:

  • Approval from the AP teacher
  • Have at least a B- average in all courses within the academic area of the respective AP course
  • Demonstrate a good attendance record
  • Display the qualities of a model student: good behavior, responsibility, strong work ethic, academic honesty

Hoy Padre Norberto Sandoval, junto con la Latino Student Organization, celebró una hermosa misa en honor a la Virgen de Guadalupe. En 1531, la Virgen de Guadalupe apareció al pobre campesino indígena, Juan Diego. Ahora la Virgen representa la esencia de México – la fusión de la España católica y lo indígena de México. Los miembros de LSO presentaron baile folclórico y azteca para celebrar estas dos culturas.

Today, Fr. Norberto Sandoval and STM’s Latino Student Organization led the school in a beautiful celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe. In 1531, the Virgin of Guadalupe appeared to the poor Indian peasant Juan Diego. She now represents the essence of Mexico - the fusion of Catholic Spain and Indigenous Mexico. Members of LSO performed folklore and Aztec dances in celebration of these two cultures.

Members of the STM Green Club spent a couple of hours on Saturday morning on a project to protect newly planted trees for the winter. Wire cages were placed around each tree and then filled with dry leaves to keep out the bitter winter cold. A total of 26 oak saplings and 3 young maple trees were serviced on the property. A project for the spring will seek students and faculty to "adopt" a tree for ongoing care and the right to provide a name.

Special thanks go to student helpers Henry Barksdale and Sierra Cruz for their hearts and hands on Saturday; Mr. Lalko for the inspiration for the project and the tree location map; and Mr. Doan for keeping the many bags of leaves safe until Saturday. We are looking forward to these trees providing beauty, shade, shelter, and clean air for many years to come!
