Since 1873, St. Thomas Aquinas School has been providing a quality Catholic education to the children of Baltimore.
Throughout its 128-year history, St. Thomas Aquinas School has maintained its dedication to the academic, spiritual, physical and emotional growth of its students.
St. Thomas Aquinas is a Catholic school dedicated to recognizing the God- given uniqueness of each child.
We offer a developmentally appropriate curriculum within a nurturing family oriented environment that promotes the spiritual, academic, social, and physical growth of each student.
Our program includes the teaching of Catholic Doctrine, moral values, and self-discipline that we at St. Thomas Aquinas feel are central in preparing students to accept, live, and spread the good news of the Gospel.
With a strong belief in discipline and self-reliance, St. Thomas Aquinas' faculty creates an atmosphere of mutual respect where students become aware of their own self-worth and learn to work with and accept others, while striving to reach their full academic potential.
Believing that parents are the primary educators of their children, we firmly and actively seek the support and cooperation of parents in educating their children.
