Saint Thomas' Episcopal School

Center for Academic Excellence

Saint Thomas’ Episcopal School is committed to providing opportunities for all students to achieve, succeed, and excel. 

Who We Are

The Center for Academic Excellence was created on the premise that STE’s classical education is accessible, and excellence is attainable, by all students who have received admittance to the school.

Why We Are Here

We support students, parents, faculty, and administrators to ensure the highest level of excellence for each student. Individual plans are developed to ensure that each person’s needs are met.

What We Do

We ensure that all students have access to the curriculum and the opportunity to become critical thinkers and life-long learners. Often, this requires differentiated instruction to meet the needs of all students. We work to provide reasonable and effective classroom accommodations, as appropriate, whenever possible, and as needed. We additionally ensure that opportunities to enhance and extend the curriculum are available for those who are ready for additional challenge and academic rigor.
