Shaping Young Minds

St. Thomas High School is a well-established college preparatory that provides a caring, intellectually challenging learning atmosphere in which young men develop the tools necessary to become successful in their future studies and careers. Our students are well prepared for an ever demanding and diverse world. Young alumni often tell us that the course content and workload in college is very manageable for them because they trained for academic rigor at St. Thomas.

The St. Thomas community also shapes the character and nurtures the faith of students, staff, parents and alumni. We share the responsibility of bringing Christ’s message to the community at large by serving those in need and being advocates for social justice.

Physical Education Department

Physical Education courses at St. Thomas High School strive to offer a broad spectrum of activities in order that the student may find a degree of success, which will in turn motivate him toward a lifetime of physical well-being.

The curriculum is divided into two categories: Team sports, used to emphasize the concepts of social interaction and unity; and sports for life, including weight training and conditioning, to encourage life-long habits of regular physical activity.

Two semesters of PE courses are required for graduation and can be taken at any time.

Most often at least one semester of PE is taken during the Freshman year.

Tim Fitzpatrick (B.A., Rice University) rejoined the St. Thomas family after eight years of service from 1996-2004. He is the Dean of the PE department and serves as head varsity football coach. Coach Fitzpatrick looks forward to working with all St. Thomas students to achieve their personal and team goals.

Nathan Labus (B.S., University of Houston) has coached at St. Thomas since 2000. He teaches Physical Education and Health and is the head coach of cross country and track.

Clayton Vanderlaan (B.S. Graceland University) joined The St. Thomas faculty in 2015. He teaches PE, is an assistant football coach and also coaches baseball.
