I graduated from Aquinas and to this day am a proud alum. I am still close friends with many people I met at Aquinas. The biggest gift Aquinas gave me was preparing me for college. Through their dual enrollment with Johnson County Community College I was able to take many classes for college credit my junior and senior years. This gave me much more flexibility when I moved away to college and I already had an idea of the workload that would be expected of me. The Can Drive is one of my favorite memories and nothing beats singing the Alma Mater at a sports event. Amor Vincit Omnia, once a Saint, always a Saint!

I love this school! I am on my third child to go through and I always tell people there is something for everyone at Aquinas. The feeling of unity among the parents and the students is like nothing I have ever seen. I am a product of Catholic schools and my husband is not but we both agree that St Thomas Aquinas is far superior to anything we had growing up. I love how the faculty interacts with the kids and the spirit is undeniable. I have had children with very different experiences there ranging from varsity athletics, student government, advanced academics ,theater and choir and all have been stellar. These students can’t wait to come back after they graduate and the communion of Saints extends far beyond Kansas. So many people know and respect this school. Once a Saint, always a Saint. Do you and your kids a favor and choose Aquinas.
I am currently a freshman at Saint Thomas Aquinas High School. After first semester, I had the urge to transfer to a different high school because I was “bored and unhappy.” I quickly realized that everyone feels that way in high school at one point or another. After some thought, I realized that Aquinas is the best school I could possibly go to and the perfect fit for me! I recommend anyone come here because on the first day you already feel like you’re part of a family. There are so many events throughout the year and so many great things that I could go on and on about! GO SAINTS💙💛
