Newspaper Advertising

As adviser of the student newspaper at Saint Thomas Aquinas High School, I would like to offer you the opportunity to reach our 950 students, 85 staff and their families with an advertisement.
I realize that several schools will be approaching you with advertising requests, but I believe The Shield stands out for four reasons:
  1. The students. The Saints are an exceptional and well-rounded student body.
  2. The distribution. There is no subscription fee, and papers are not just dumped in various spots around school. Papers are delivered to students at the beginning of study hall so the audience is sure to receive their copy and have time to read it.
  3. The format. The staff will never run a page consisting entirely of advertisements because that is a page the reader will automatically skip over. Your ads will only run on a page with stories. It will not run on the Opinions page so your business is not associated with a stance.
  4. The professionalism. The Shield is committed to holding the highest standards of journalism and abides by the Society of Professional Journalists’ Code of Ethics. You do not have to worry about seeing your advertisement next to a lewd, slanderous or amateurish article. Our staff takes pride in its work, and realizes the importance of a free and responsible press in society.
We will publish once a month. I would be happy to send you an issue of our newspaper so you can see the quality.
