Principal's Message Mr. McCollum

Welcome to St. Thomas More Catholic School. 

To serve as principal of St. Thomas More Catholic School is both a thrilling and humbling experience: thrilling in that my education and experience in Catholic education is put to the fullest use and humbling in the knowledge that it is a joint effort of the administration, faculty, staff, parents, and parish that make St. Thomas More the truly Catholic school that it is.  We are a community that works together to know, love, and serve God. We are truly inspire by Pope Francis and his call to strengthen the family because we have been striving for that same purpose since we opened our doors in 1962.

Pope Francis proclaimed “let us journey together” as Catholic education holds a three-fold mission of message, community, and service.  This mission is achieved by proclaiming God’s message of salvation, by respecting the dignity of all members of our global community, and by serving the needs of others.  We take great pride in our school as we have always striven to achieve these goals.   The world is changing so quickly. Our students are now global citizens and 21st century learners.  The exponential progress in education and learning that our incoming kindergartners will experience before they graduate as 8th graders is amazing. At St. Thomas More, we promote academic excellent and leadership in every student.  I firmly believe that St. Thomas More Catholic School provides opportunities and develops lifelong learners and leaders.

  We hope that you too will join our faith-filled vibrant community.  Please do not hesitate to call or email with questions.  Our goal is to provide a high quality Catholic education for all who desire one. No one is turned away because of financial need. We will collaborate with your family to find an equitable solution for attending St. Thomas More Catholic School.



St. Thomas More School is to be the preeminent institution for parochial Catholic elementary education in the Spokane Community.

St. Thomas More Faculty and Staff in partnership with the family through an environment dedicated to spiritual, intellectual, social and physical growth will graduate responsible and virtuous citizens and leaders who inspire others.

St. Thomas More School will be recognized as a strong ministry of the Parish expressing our Catholic faith through worship and service.

St. Thomas More School will work with the Parish, the community, families and benefactors to grow and expand the financial base of support in order to reach out, open our doors, and spread the Good News of Catholic education.
