Aquinas Academy was founded essentially on two principles: to foster in its students a fuller understanding of and deep appreciation for their Catholic Faith in a manner completely loyal to the teaching authority of the Roman Catholic Church, and to offer students a rigorous classical curriculum covering the major areas of the liberal arts. In doing so, the Academy hopes to produce exceptionally well-formed and authentically Christian leaders whose accomplishments can give glory to God in the midst of the world.
