Mission Statement

Mission Statment

School Vision Statement
 
"Aquinas fosters a flexible and interactive student-centered learning environment in order to form today's students into tomorrow's leaders."
 
School Philosophy 
 
Aquinas High School is dedicated and committed to helping our students strive to do their best. Our Catholic tradition enables the entire community to develop and share a common vision.
 
The Aquinas students is instructed in human knowledge and skills valued for their own worth, which derive their most profound significance from the plan of God. The curriculum combines the bringing together of religious truths and values and acquired human knowledge. The faculty integrates this learning and living in all aspects of teaching our students.

Challenging our students to reach their full potential is achieved by offering a course of study that meets their individual needs and assists them in deepening their awareness of God and their personal faith. Students participate in service programs that enhance their faith development and broaden their perspective by going out into the community in which they live to serve.

"Christian education is intended to make men's faith become living, conscious and active through the light of instruction."

 
The Bishop's Office in the Church, 14

 
"More than any other program of education sponsored by the Church, the Catholic School has the opportunity and obligation to be unique, contempory and oriented to Christian service...All those involved in a Catholic School - parents, pastors, teachers, administrators and students - must earnestly desire to make a community of faith which is indeed living, consious and active."
