The Power to Transform Lives begins early at Aquinas Catholic Schools. Students are introduced to the power of servant leadership at age four. World languages begin at age five. At Aquinas Catholic Schools, students are taught compassion toward fellow students and an involved staff acts upon challenges from cliques and bullying immediately. Ninety-eight percent of the students in recent graduating classes went on to a four-year college. Our ACT test scores are 11% higher than the state average. All faiths are welcome.
