Read what member families have said about their St. Thomas Aquinas Academy homeschooling experience.

I am a very satisfied homeschooling parent with STAA. I have a daughter entering first grade. She completed the "pre-first" program with St. Thomas. First, the best thing, in my opinion about working with STAA is the wonderful staff. STAA advisors put together a detailed packet of information specific to your child's age and grade. The books

Two years ago, after putting together my own curriculum for 6 years, I switched to STAA. It was the best decision I've made in 8 years of homeschooling! The STAA curriculum is wonderful, with excellent selections in all the subjects. Their choices - especially in history, grammar, math, and the fine arts - are often texts that I may

Hello! I thought you would appreciate this: [My son] has mentioned a few times in the past months that he was glad he was homeschooled. He even said he was glad he had to write so many papers. He has noticed that many students are unable to write. Also, he was able to write a 4-page paper with citations in 1.5 hrs. Both [of my sons] are excelling in college. They said homeschool was much harder. :) Thank you!
It was great speaking with you yesterday. Thank you so much for your advice and encouragement. I entered our meeting feeling discouraged and “wilted”, but felt refreshed and strengthened afterward.

Yahoo! 2012-13 semester reporting is done! And...I do thank STAA for requiring this. It is a life skill. I also thank you for not tossing those of us who miss the mark under the bus.

I just wanted to write and let you know how grateful we are for your program. This is our second year with STAA. The program and curriculum is excellent, flexible and enjoyable with great support. Our homeschool atmosphere is now a relaxed one since there is no more wondering if there is a *better* curriculum out there.  After experimenting with so many other curriculums, I am so happy we have found our home with STAA. I look forward to many future years with you.

God bless you for the job you are doing -- the peace you have helped us find as a family is priceless!

We have 2 homeschoolers - ages 14 and 12. We have been homeschooling for 4 years. We have had great success with STAA. I can honestly say that our children have blossomed into well rounded individuals because of your program. We are encouraged to use a wide variety of teaching styles. We especially like reading many of our

We didn't start home-schooling until our two oldest children were 13 and 9. Needless to say, with the late start and so many curriculum options available, we were over-whelmed and anxious about the decision. What has been most valuable about STAA is the support and direction we get from our advisor and the flexibility to customize the

Oh, I can't wait to tell everyone how wonderful you are!

My advisor helps me to understand what needs to be done and how to make it really fun for the kids. What I really like are the tips she gives me for dealing with the little ones while trying to school the older ones.

This is our first year homeschooling. STAA and [our advisor] have made this a very easy transition. We have had a great year!

I really don't know what I would do without your kindness, and very helpful advice. You are a blessing to our family.

The assessment testing was quick and easy to do, so I didn't expect much valuable feedback. Boy was I wrong!!! It was like my advisor had met my kids and spent hours/days with them.

We have been so very happy with our first year with STAA! Thank you for walking me through it and for all the fantastic resources and materials we are using. There is not one we don't like!

Our family so enjoyed our wonderful relationship with STAA as our [son] worked his way through high school. It was a wonderful and outstanding experience for him and we continue to suggest your program to all those who are looking for an excellent homeschool experience.

Since I am writing, I will also sing more praises of the Greek Studies plan. [My daughter] moaned over the timed-essay and then did very well. So easy to implement with the choose one reflection topic from each subject and then get ready, get set, go! Apparently the school also gave suggestions for the process essay in "Format Writing." Thank you! For a mom of many this is real time saver.
