Welcome to St. Thomas More!
Welcome to St. Thomas More School. We are uniquely dedicated to developing and cultivating the maturation and advancement of young men within a safe, supportive, structured, and nurturing environment.
St. Thomas More School opened in 1962. The goal of our founder, James F. Hanrahan, was to build a small school where, regardless of prior performance, there would be more attention to the needs of every student, more focus on effort and achievement, and more opportunity for accomplishment through sports and activities. He shaped a place where young men would flourish when they learned the importance of hard work, developed self-discipline, became confident in their abilities, invested time in accomplishing their goals, and began to set high expectations for their futures. His goal of offering more opportunities for success to every young man was the foundation of STM and this remains our fundamental principle today.
At St. Thomas More you will learn an essential truth: the more you apply yourself, the more you will accomplish. In the small, familial community that is our school, we expect you to do more because we do more for you. Classes are small, on average 8, so you can expect to learn more. Extra help is available every day, so you can expect your skills to develop more. We are well known for our nationally ranked PG basketball team, but there are many sports and activities available. If you want to take up tennis, learn to kayak or even try lacrosse, there is always a place for you on a team so you can expect to play more. There is the yearbook, clubs, and community service, so you can expect to be involved more. Sunday through Thursday everyone attends supervised evening study hall, so you can expect to accomplish more. On the weekend, whether we travel to Vermont to ski, a girls' boarding school for a dance or a hockey game in Hartford, you can expect to experience more.
We look forward to sharing the St. Thomas More experience with you!
