As Head of School, I continue to be excited about the many ways that Aquinas Academy continues to grow and thrive. From the youngest Preschool student to the oldest high school senior, I see students who challenge themselves in every way. I continue to marvel at a faculty of professionals who engage in meaningful conversations about those things that create stability in an all-too-relative culture. I am privileged to meet parents who know the importance of faith in the educational development of their children.
