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!
My children are currently enrolled at Aquinas Academy and are thriving in every way. The school provides an authentically Catholic education and culture where my husband and I rest assured that my children are encouraged to learn how to live out their faith in all that they do. At Aquinas Academy, we are supported in our efforts as parents to teach our children how to put God at the center of their lives. Faith is integrated into the fabric of the school and the fruits of this effort are apparent through the multitude of beautiful, successful graduates who glorify God in many varied lines of work and vocations. The teachers and administrators are all strong, faithful Catholics who love, care, protect and pray for every child in the school. The students are supportive of each other and my children are very happy to go to school each day. I feel so blessed to be able to send my children to Aquinas Academy where I know their 'whole person' is being educated and developed.
