Aquinas Academy is a Catholic and classical community,
forming the intellect and will.
Catholic and Classical
Aquinas Academy exists to cooperate with families in handing on the Catholic Faith and the culture of Western civilization to their children. We recognize the superiority of the time-tested classical educational methodology in direct contrast to the fluctuating trends of modern progressive or secular humanism.
The Aquinas community is united by the recognition that we are all called by Almighty God – every student, parent, teacher, administrator, and board member – to be actively engaged in learning so far as we are able and living out the vocation we have been called to.
Vibrant and Authentically Catholic Faith
We encourage each other to strive to live the Catholic Faith with integrity growing in a personal and communal relationship with Jesus Christ and set an example worthy of imitation.
Forming Minds and Hearts
Reason and volition are divine gifts that every human must develop so as to know and love what is true, beautiful, and good. Catholic education strives to help students grow in their knowledge and appreciation of these realities by immersing them in Western Catholic culture, namely: our stories, heroes, language, poetry, mathematics, philosophy, history, art, science, music, and literature.
The Catholic Faith teaches that every human being is called to fulfill a particular and unique role within the drama of human history. This idea is the meaning of the word “person,” which comes from the Latin phrase dramatis personae, meaning “dramatic roles.” Catholic education (set new link) strives to help students to embrace authentic personhood by seeking to discern and follow their respective vocations.
“Nothing can be of greater benefit to both Christian and civil society than a
timely formation of youth in piety and virtue.”” -Pope Gregory XVI
Aquinas Academy follows the educational philosophy proposed by the Catholic Church, grounded in Catholic teaching about the meaning and purpose of the human person.
The word “education” is derived from the Latin word “educare” which refers directly to “child-rearing.” In keeping with this meaning, Catholic education recognizes that parents are given the responsibility of being primary educators of their children. Teachers cooperate in the task of child-rearing as secondary educators. While a parent’s authority comes directly from Almighty God through nature, a Catholic teacher’s authority has three components:
- the authority that comes from the parents of their students;
- the authority that comes from the Catholic Church to preach the Gospel:
- the authority that comes from Almighty God through nature
