Aquinas Academy is a Catholic and classical learning community. We strive every day: to live in keeping with a vibrant and authentically Catholic Faith; to form our minds and hearts to seek, recognize, and love whatever is genuinely beautiful, good, and true; and to discern and embrace our unique vocations.
Aquinas Academy flourishes because of the generous contributions of our benefactors and parents. There are many ways, both large and small, to assist Aquinas in continuing the mission of formation. One way to contribute is the Fund-A-Need program, which helps to supply our teachers with their specific needs.
As Roman Catholics, we believe that Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the fullness of time, makes Himself present to us through the Eucharist as a continuous sacrifice. Outside of time and yet throughout all time, He pleads with us to accept the salvation that He wins for us through His sacrifice on the cross.
Forensics fits quite well into a classical understanding of education. The trivium (threefold path) in classical education aims at teaching students to appreciate beautiful language, thoughts, and arguments through the study of grammar, logic, and rhetoric.
The object of the curriculum is to lay a strong foundation for each student’s life experience. It is designed to challenge students and prepare them for a demanding college-prep high school program. Our principle educational philosophy and pedagogical techniques center on the integral formation of a person through the betterment of his/her intellectual, spiritual, human and apostolic development.
