We support, we teach, but most of all,

we inspire all children to be their
best in all they do.

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.

Grade Levels

Our strong Preschool-8th grade liberal arts curriculum prepares students for success in high school and beyond.


STM Preschool-0331

Our flexible, family-oriented preschool offers a variety of programs for children 33 months and older, including full-day, part-day and pre-kindergarten options. Choose MORE for your child.



Creativity is nurtured, new concepts are explored and learning blossoms in our primary grades. Our education focuses on the whole child and is a foundation for excellence.

Middle School


Challenging curriculum that is relevant, integrative and exploratory maximizes student success in our middle school which prepares students for high school and beyond.

Jesuit Tradition

The only Jesuit elementary school in Minnesota, 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 – 25% 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. R.J. Fichtinger. 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.

Visits & Tours
Prospective families are encouraged to visit Saint Thomas More to discover the difference our school can make in the life of your child. After touring, ambassador families are available to answer your questions and offer personal insights. Prospective students are welcome to shadow for a day which will provide a first-hand view of daily school life.
Our registration process is completed online through Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS). Families manage registration and tuition through its online portal.
Financial Information
We are able to keep the cost of education lower through the generosity of our parish and development initiatives.
