Principal’s Welcome



Thank you for your interest in St. Thomas More Cathedral School. At STM, teachers, students and parents work together to achieve the mission of our school

“To nurture and fulfill the spiritual, academic, social and emotional promise of each child in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ.”  

Our school is filled with energy, joy, creativity and high expectations. St. Thomas More is the first elementary school in the world to launch a satellite. Our focus on high-interest projects encourages students to stretch their knowledge and motivates them to attempt hands-on activities and lessons not thought possible before.

At St. Thomas More, we celebrate the fact that we are a Blue Ribbon school, as a result of the hard work and achievements of our students and teachers. This award, from the U.S. Department of Education, recognizes that we have a challenging academic program. 

Though we are the parish school for the Cathedral of St. Thomas More, our students come to STM throughout Arlington, as well as Alexandria, Fairfax County, the District of Columbia and Maryland. The diverse backgrounds and experiences of our families contribute to the welcoming spirit you will find at Saint Thomas More. We are committed to making Catholic education available to all families who seek it for their children. 

Thank you again for your interest in our school. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We can be reached at 703-528-6781 or email

We look forward to introducing you to St. Thomas More Cathedral School. 

May God Bless you and your family,

Eleanor McCormack
