Welcome to our school's website! We appreciate the opportunity to introduce you to our school.
Aquinas Academy is a small private, Catholic school dedicated to promoting academic excellence within the tradition of a Catholic education. Aquinas Academy offers personalized instruction, regarding each child as of infinite value in the sight of God.
Aquinas Academy offers a Catholic liberal arts education based on methodology modeled by its patron saints, St. Thomas Aquinas and St. John Bosco. St. Thomas, one of the greatest intellectual figures in the history of the world and the Church, taught intellectual truths by using methods and language that is readily understandable. St. John Bosco’s educational methods were to regard students as children of God and having infinite value. The student’s educational and character formation must be personalized using charity and love.
It is the deliberate intention of the Academy to teach the faith not as an independent course within the school day, but as the Vatican II councilor document on Christian Education, Gravissumum Educationis, states: “to relate all of human culture to the good news of salvation so that the light of the faith will illumine everything that the students will gradually come to learn about the world, about life, and about the human person.”
