St. Thomas More Academy (STMA) is a private, co-educational, college preparatory high school operated by Catholic laymen. It is operated independent of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Raleigh. It serves students and their families in the Raleigh, North Carolina area. The goal of STMA is to build good Christian leaders who will be a beacon to all who encounter them as stated in the school's mission statement. STMA seeks to restore Catholic education through classical, preparatory level education and solid religious formation in its youth.

The school was founded in 2002 to meet the growing needs of Raleigh Catholics. Some of these families approached Bishop Francis Joseph Gossman about starting and gaining approval for this independent school to operate. Since that time the school has grown and opened a new campus in August 2007. In 2012, the campus was further expanded to include a second building.
