Our Mission / Philosophy
The mission of Thomas More School is auxiliary to the mission of the Catholic Church, which is to lead man to union with God as his last end. Thomas More School was founded in 1977 in order to inspire and guide children in the true purpose of education. Man was created to know, love and serve God in this world and to be happy with Him forever in the next. Consequently, it is the goal of Thomas More School to provide the children of Catholic families with a thorough education founded upon traditional principles of education. This way, they will be formed into true Catholics, learning to love and serve God in every aspect of their daily lives and be lead to union with God in their ultimate end.
Philosophy of Education by St. Don Bosco
Thomas More School follows the teaching methods of St. Don Bosco. His philosophy of teaching cannot be understated. We happily exhort our students and parents to the Bosco (Salesian) method, in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost.
[For our teachers] "Do you want to do a good deed? Teach the young! Do you want to perform a holy act? Teach the young! Do you want to do a holy thing? Teach the young! Truly, now and for the future, among holy things, this is the holiest. Without confidence and love, there can be no true education. If you want to be loved…you must love yourselves, and make your children feel that you love them.”
"Remember that good confessions and good Communions are the first steps to a sound education. If we want to have a good society, we must concentrate all our forces on the Christian education of the young. Experience has taught me that if we wish to sustain civil society then we should take good care of the young."
“Run, jump, have all the fun you want at the right time, but, for heaven’s sake, do not commit sin!”
"Frequent Communion and daily Mass are the two pillars of education." (Don Bosco).
