At St. Thomas Aquinas, we are helping students on the path to the good life—one where our young people possess the knowledge, skills, and virtues to be community leaders and to have strong, loving relationships with others and with God.
So we approach each day with a clear, comprehensive picture of excellence and intentional strategies for fostering students’ growth.
Knowledge matters. Students only become effective readers and advance educationally by building wide knowledge of the world. So our students don’t just learn science in hands-on experiments, or world history in social studies; we integrate content-rich texts into language arts instruction. We also equip students to complete Algebra 1 in eighth grade. Thus our curriculum ensures that students acquire the foundational knowledge they need to thrive in high-quality high schools and beyond.

School Culture Animated by Faith and Virtue
As a community of faith, we know that our beliefs live in our actions. Our root beliefs make the St. Thomas Aquinas community unique and ground our school culture in a set of shared values. Simple acts such as greeting each other and taking turns on the playground become ways for us to live out those beliefs on a daily basis.
By practicing those habits each day, our students graduate ready to thrive and to help their communities do the same, in high school and beyond.
