Aquinas High School, a Diocesan Catholic Secondary School, opened in 1957 following the merger of Boy's Catholic High School, operated by the Marist Brothers under the Diocese of Savannah, and Mt. St. Joseph's Academy, owned and operated by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.
The mission of Aquinas High School is "developing Christian leaders" through an excellent Catholic secondary education.
The school emphasizes moral/ethical standards and strives for a Christian integration of spirit, mind, and body in each student.
Aquinas seeks to foster respect for all persons, to encourage responsibility in each individual, and to promote Christian service among its students.We believe a positive, active spiritual life must permeate everyday living.

Excellent preparation for 'real world' academics and success in college! Students learn to perform well in a rigorous academic environment. My kids return home from 1st semester of college grateful for how well-prepared they were! AP credits offset future expenses too!
