Mission, Vision & Beliefs
Our Mission and Beliefs
The mission of Saint Thomas Aquinas High School as a Catholic Faith Community is to challenge and nurture young men and women to develop their God-given spiritual, intellectual, social and physical potential, and to help them become life-long learners and responsible citizens guided by Catholic values.
Our Shared Vision
Anchored in traditions and high expectations, we are a Christ-centered, Catholic community.
As a Catholic Faith Community we believe:
- Our actions and teachings need to reflect Jesus’ life and be consistent with Catholic tradition.
- Students must be encouraged to strive for excellence.
- Students must be encouraged to develop moral courage and integrity.
- Students must be encouraged to pursue the fulfillment of their God-given potential and to promote that fulfillment in others.
- Learning is a life-long process; therefore, the ability and desire to obtain knowledge is as important as the knowledge itself.
- Teachers, students and parents work best in a climate of mutual respect and cooperation.
The ideals which should be promoted in our Catholic Faith Community are:
- A personal relationship with God
- Respect for self and others
- The interdependence of society
- Acceptance and appreciation of diversity
- Community service
