STA CELEBRATES CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK
STA teachers challenge students to think critically, embrace state of the art technology, and explore global trends, while equipping students with the confidence to achieve at STA and beyond.
STA offers each student the privilege to mature in one's Catholic faith. Morality and social justice are the cornerstones of a Service Learning initiative which focuses on making a difference in the STA community and our world. Respect for human life, created in the image and likeness of God, serves as the foundation of every effort.
An appreciation for the arts, cultural diversity, and competition is the pulse of STA activities. The ability to develop each student’s unique gifts is founded in a wide variety of clubs, cultural events, and athletic teams. STA is where champions are made!

STA's Marine Biology Club participated in the International Coastal cleanup, a worldwide effort to clean our beaches. Over the course of the day, around 86 STA students banded together with other organizations to collect over 900 pounds of trash!
International Coastal Cleanup Day is a promise to bring cleanliness and purity to nature as a whole. The day was started as a way to raise awareness about the growing pollution on various beaches of the world. Raider Marie Biology Club was excited to take part. "We always have a great turnout for this event," said moderator Amy Lowe, "but with over 86 students in attendance, this was by far our largest since COVID."
The STA FRC Robotics Team Marauders showcased their autonomously-controlled "Quarterbot" and "Wired Receiver" robots in a short demonstration at halftime during the ESPN Kickoff Classic in August. The autonomous robots were on full display as they showed off for the fans. Working on the practice field, team members tweaked their programming and ran practice drills for the gameday crowd. The goal was for them to complete a pass in the end zone and score a touchdown!
Robotics students were able to meet with members of the community, discuss the planning and development of their robots.
The STA Robotics program continued its dominance in the FIRST Technical Challenge during the 2021-2022 competition season. All four of our teams’ robots performed well at the final qualifying event, the South Florida League Championship, hosted at STA.
Team 14431, the Pyrites, took home the Think Award, which is given to the team that the Judges feel best summarizes the journey of developing their robot in an Engineering Portfolio. With this, the Pyrites move on to the State Championship in Winter Haven, Florida on March 5th. GO RAIDERS!
Denise Aloma, the school’s principal, has been selected by the U.S. Department of Education as one of nine school leaders nationwide to be honored with the Terrel H. Bell Award for Outstanding School Leadership for 2022.
