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

We started homeschooling when our oldest was in Kindergarten. We started with a very traditional homeschooling curriculum with all the lesson plans and texts sent to us. My oldest son and I struggled through the first two years of his schooling battling over completing exactly what the lesson plans suggested. It was a

I have been homeschooling with STAA since 2003 and loved it. My questions are answered quickly and personally - I am a Mom and Family member, not just a "case number."

What is the single best thing about your experience with STAA?

We can’t imagine going without these wonderful, enhanced lesson plans! Thank you!

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

We have always used our own "program" for our grade school children, but since they will want to go to college, we decided we needed something more formal for high school. Right now we have one child who will be a senior and one who will be starting 9th grade, plus two younger children. We chose STAA three years ago because we

[O]ur 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.

"We are having a great school year and I am so grateful for it!"

When we first decided to homeschool, we'd been told our son (who has auditory processing issues) should repeat preschool since he had a difficult time absorbing material and because he couldn't print his name "small enough for kindergarten". What we saw was a bright boy who would need one-on-one instruction. We knew we

This will be my daughter's third year with STAA. She is now a ninth grader, and we have been homeschooling her for nearly seven years. Before using STAA, we were on our own, selecting curriculum, scheduling, etc. That worked well at the time, but as she approached the middle school years, I felt as if I wanted guidance and

We are now going into our third year with STAA. We have a third grader, second grader and a kindergartner  STAA has more then met our expectations as home schooling parents.

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.

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.
