Aquinas Academy Reviews
After 13 years at Aquinas Academy, I feel prepared for a successful future both in college and beyond. The academics are rigorous, but they are truly beneficial and students are guided by the amazing staff. Teachers will set aside time to help students who are struggling or who would like to dig deeper. In the last few years, I have been able to experience the growth of the school in major ways. Between greater facilities, course options, athletic programs, and extracurricular activities, Aquinas continues to reach out and expand the opportunities it provides. But, the most important part of Aquinas' foundation is a life centered in Christ. Aquinas seeks to put Christ at the center of all things, whether it be through prayer before classes or sports games, religion classes, and especially in the opportunity it provides for students, teachers, and parents to attend daily mass. With Aquinas' academic and religious foundation, I feel prepared for my future!
Apart from a tough workload to prepare for college, the Faith is Aquinas' core. Optional daily Mass and weekly Confession show faith is present. Religion class is required, but this is a Catholic school, and God should be at the heart of it. Sports are a huge part of our interests and Aquinas has many WPIAL sports! Teachers care about us, taking time from the school day and after to help us understand the material. Pushing all of us to do our best, they teach that a good education is more important than grades. In religion class, truth is taught to be objective, and they don't change truths to appease those who disagree with the Church's teachings. Aquinas and its teachers do have their faults, but they can and do strive to improve. (The noted negative part of Aquinas' atmosphere comes from some students losing sight of what's important and putting our own laziness above the required hard work; it's not Aquinas' fault.) Great school: fun, virtuous, helpful. Visit us any time!
As a 13-year student and recent graduate of Aquinas, I can sincerely say that this school devotes greater effort into the intellectual and spiritual development of its students than any institution I've ever been a part of. This is due, primarily, to the genuine care that the first-rate teaching staff gives to every student. The faculty makes it a priority that each student knows the truth well, does the good with sincerity, and recognizes the beautiful with excitement. This mission is furthered by the availability of daily Mass. The emphasis on student involvement (like the student government, school newspaper, athletics and endless list of student-founded and run clubs) also furthers the school’s success. As it is a college-prep school, high academic expectations are put on students. Most importantly, the Aquinas community is a place of genuine love and no student is left to feel out of place. If there is anything to know about Aquinas, it is that everyone is respected and loved.
