As you and your family enter into the new school year and the host of "Saints" activities that complement a high school experience, we encourage you to support the Blue & Gold Annual Fund and prayerfully consider the many ways you can assist the young people of Saint Thomas Aquinas High School.
The mission of our school is to challenge and nurture young people to develop the talents that God has given them. Each day the Saint Thomas Aquinas staff and faculty work together to provide an educational environment steeped in faith, academic excellence and service. Your student's participation in extra activities outside the classroom plays a significant role in his or her overall development to become a life-long learner and a responsible citizen guided by Catholic values.
The Blue & Gold Annual Fund, coupled with the annual Saints Extravaganza, is the primary means by which we are able to provide the necessary funds to provide quality co-curricular and extra-curricular student activities. Tuition covers "bell-to-bell" expenses for spiritual and academic programs while Blue & Gold contributions help support the wide variety of activities and athletic programs in which nearly all our students participate. These activities help provide the well-rounded education that is so important during the formative high school years.
Please consider all the activities in our students are involved throughout the school-year, then assist in sponsoring these important programs by making a contribution to the Blue & Gold Annual Fund.
As an additional option to help us assist our young people, in these times of great need for many of our families, you may specify your Blue & Gold contribution to help make a Catholic secondary education more accessible for our families in need by earmarking your contribution for our Guardian Angel program.
When you contribute to the Annual Fund, it not only helps build our community but also allows us to continue to provide what is necessary for our young people to continue to grow in knowledge guided by Catholic values.
We look forward to seeing you at the many upcoming events that make our school a true Communion of “Saints.”
William Ford, Ed.D.
