Aquinas stresses the importance of morality and virtue in the Catholic life. The school provides many and regular opportunities for grace—First Friday Masses, confession, Eucharistic Adoration, pilgrimages, and retreats. These activities encourage the development of the whole person.
Every aspect of the academic experience is given over to the development of the whole man: the man who speaks, writes, and acts in the context of the Ignatian concept of "eloquentia perfecta" (perfect eloquence).
