I am a senior at Aquinas in the Class of 2018. Aquinas has been wonderful to me. Because of the small environment, I became very good friends with almost all the people in my class. The students there are all very friendly and outgoing, and making friends was not difficult. The academic curriculum is challenging but very rewarding. The teachers are very good at what they do. The teacher come from all over the area and the southern US. The biggest and most unique part of the school is its sense of family. As a religious school, everyone is very close and religion is a focal point ( you take four years of religion-based classes). Many of the staff members went to the school, a nice addition not seen as much in other schools. The school has many clubs and activities. Almost everyone I know is in at least one club or sport and there are no tryouts, so there is no worry that you won't make the team. This school really is a special place.

There are a variety of extracurricular activities at Aquinas. I believe that every student can find something of interest there. Almost every student is involved in a sport, club or organization. These range from football, swimming, baseball, cross country, golf, tennis, Clay Target Sports and more, to Drama, Drum Corps, Yearbook, Campus Ministry, Key Club, Student Council and more.

Whether your child hits baseballs, swims, runs, sings, plays a musical instrument, paints or does photography, he or she will find his or her 'niche' at Aquinas. Aquinas also has students involved in National Honors Society, Robotics, and Model UN. I have been very pleased with the quality of the activities my kids have been involved in at Aquinas.
The family atmosphere at this school is unbelievable. I did not attend Aquinas as a high school student, nor did I grow up in Augusta, but this school has a family atmosphere unlike any other school I have experienced as a student, teacher, or parent. Many of the students had parents and grandparents who also attended Aquinas, but that doesn't exclude the 'new' students and parents from feeling a part of the family. I will absolutely choose this school again for each of my children. My college kids both felt like Aquinas more than prepared them for college classes, even saying that their freshman year was easier for them than high school. I love that my kids get to pray in school and sporting events, and that they attend a school that is safe and that has such a positive environment.
