Catholic Identity


St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School promotes a Christ-centered environment which fosters the total formation of each child. Our students, in connection with parents, prepare students to develop leadership skills to meet the global challenges, as well as, to be of service to others. The philosophy of a Catholic school is founded on the four principles of Gospel, Message, Community and Service, proclaimed by the pastoral message of the Bishops in the document, “To Teach as Jesus Did.” Based on these principles, the members of the administration, faculty , staff, clergy and parents are committed to teach the whole child with love, understanding and compassion.

St. Thomas Aquinas's administration, faculty and staff are committed to academic excellence and to teaching tolerance and social justice principles to the school community. In order to evangelize Christ’s message and educate the students to become the hands and feet of Christ, an attitude of service permeates every aspect of school life.

Catholic education is Christian value-centered and teaches students by guiding them to share their God given talents, treasure and time with their neighbors in a spirit of friendliness, respecting the diversity within the community and promoting Gospel values.

School Culture

A strong, positive, authentic Catholic school culture forms in children not only knowledge, but also a worldview that defines their understanding of their purpose in life: that they were made by a God who loves and knows them, and that they are all called to serve others.
