Aquinas Academy is a beautiful private school with a strong Classical Curriculum. Our children are thriving academically and socially. There is such a strong sense of community, love, and support among the students, teachers, and faculty. Our family has truly been blessed at Aquinas Academy as the school's mission and teachings of the Catholic Faith are in line with our teachings at home. I have a deep appreciation for the founders, staff, and teachers at Aquinas Academy who care for each child in a loving way. Every child is different, and the teachers at Aquinas Academy appreciate these differing traits while providing a solid Classical Curriculum. Aquinas Academy have strong music, art, and physical education programs, including Robotics Club, Forensics, Girls Clubs, and much more that help expand the children's horizons. We are blessed to have our children at Aquinas Academy!

We have been at Aquinas for four years, and have been exceedingly happy with the education our four kids receive there. The class sizes are on the smaller side, and the teachers are in close contact with the parents, avoiding many educational or social problems that seem to be prevalent at other schools. The school is very family focused, and kids with siblings spend many recesses playing with each other, which was important to me with four kids in school. The whole place feels like a family, and the staff is second to none. The school also reinforces the values that we do our best to teach at home, character development is a high priority at Aquinas.

Our son absolutely loves going to school and the friends he has met at Aquinas! As parents we appreciate and value the nurturing family atmosphere and the strong classical Catholic education he is receiving. Another incredible aspect is the devotional life taught to and encouraged in the children with chapel time and Rosary recitation just to name a few things.

Each child matters and their individual characteristics, strengths and weaknesses are taken into account. Both of my children's teachers truly understood their personalities as well as their specific needs from week one this year. The curriculum is superior and there is an emphasis on character building rather then simply learning how to pass exams.
