Aquinas has been a Rochester tradition since 1902 and over 19,000 graduates can attest to the outstanding education they received while being a member of the Aquinas family, a family they will always be a part of!
Our mission is to teach all students goodness, discipline and knowledge, supported through gospel values, within a comprehensive curricular and co-curricular program that will prepare them to be responsible and caring citizens.
From the moment a student applies to Aquinas, we take great care to ensure that he or she is placed in the proper classes that suit his or her academic ability. If a student is of higher academic ability, we can challenge him or her with honors placement, dual credit college courses and our outstanding Advanced Placement program. If a student has academic difficulties in certain areas, we have in place the necessary assistance to help that student succeed.
This unique academic environment allows Aquinas to make average students good, good students great, and great students extraordinary!
Our hope, as you go through the admissions process, is that our new website will help you get all of the answers you need to find out what makes Aquinas so special. If you can't find the information you need or if you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (585) 254-2020 ext. 1014 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for considering an Aquinas education!
