K–12 Admissions Process

In our admissions process, we evaluate student report cards and standardized test results from the last two years. Please submit the Academic Report Request to your current school. If previously home-schooled, then we evaluate your portfolio.

Aquinas Academy also requires two recommendations: a teacher recommendation and a personal recommendation.

We also ask that students spend a shadow day at Aquinas Academy (usually 8:30 AM – 2:30 PM).

An important element of the admissions process is a family interview at which parents and the prospective students meet with us to discuss their educational goals and the nature and mission of Aquinas Academy.
