Principal's Message

Welcome to St. Thomas Aquinas Middle School (STA).  We are a faith-filled middle school serving grades 6-9 and located in the heart of Red Deer.  We are committed to proudly proclaiming our Catholic Christian faith by working alongside our community stakeholders to provide a high quality education to all of our students.  

Our staff is devoted to serving our students through following our Division Principles of Practice. We have high expectations for ourselves and for the students within our building and are committed to working hard to ensure that our students are successful.  As a group of passionate educators, we recognize that student success can only be achieved when the desire to succeed is present in our students.  We do our best to support our students to become active participants in their education and inspire them to achieve their potential each day. 

The school community of STA values faith, academics, athletics and fine arts opportunities.  We will continue to offer a wide variety of extracurricular programs that are anchored in a strong tradition of success and achievement.  We encourage our students to make the effort to actively engage in our community by participating in the programs that we offer.  

Here at STA, we strive to maintain a safe, caring and welcoming environment and want all of our students and families to feel like valued members of our community.  As a large community, we recognize that this will be attained when we all work together to be good citizens and to look out for one another. 

Our faculty and staff look forward to working with you and your family to continue our strong tradition of providing our students with a quality education in a Catholic environment.  If you wish to contact us, feel free to call anytime.

May the Lord bless you and keep you,

Ian Stang
