A Welcoming Community
Children do not simply attend Saint Thomas More Catholic School—they belong.
The moment students cross our threshold, they are welcomed into a warm and vibrant school family. Like any family, we get to know each and every child as a person and as a student. We uncover how they learn best. We empower them to discover their innermost gifts and talents. And, we love them as we do our own.

The only Jesuit elementary school in the Twin Cities, Saint Thomas More embraces Ignatian spirituality, developing the characteristics of a Jesuit school graduate in our students. In the Jesuit tradition, we welcome families of all beliefs and backgrounds – 30% of our students are non-Catholic – and we fully involve all students in the faith life of our community.
For more than a century, Saint Thomas More has welcomed students in the heart of Saint Paul on Summit Avenue. The school is led by Principal, Patrick Lofton and Pastor, Fr. Warren Sazama. With more than 25 years of experience serving Catholic schools, Mr. Lofton believes the ultimate goal of Jesuit education is to help students become faith-filled, intellectually curious and prepared to make a difference in our world.
Welcoming New Families
There is a place for everyone at Saint Thomas More.
Every year for the past three years St. Thomas More has welcomed new students into every grade. These students are embraced by their classmates and teachers on day one. We make sure that your child’s academic and social transition is a smooth one.
