Mission Statement

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.

Welcome to Aquinas

Welcome to Aquinas High School! We hope that by perusing these pages you will gain a better understanding of who we are and all that we have to offer.
 
As a Catholic, college-prep school, we offer rigorous academics at three different levels: College Prep, Honors, and Advanced Placement. Our AP Exam Pass Rate of 79% indicates that our faculty and students are committed to their teaching and learning. AP classes are accessible to students beginning in 9th grade, and we require that all AP students sit for the AP exam in May.
 
Aquinas students compete in football, cross country, volleyball, basketball, swimming, soccer, cheerleading, track, golf, tennis, and baseball through the Georgia High School Association (GHSA). We also participate in shotgun and clay target through GISA.
 
Through sports, students learn to work hard, depend on each other, and dig deep when they are struggling. We play to WIN every time, but we need to know how to conduct ourselves with grace and dignity regardless of the weather, the officiating, or the outcome.
 
We encourage our students to hit the books hard and to join in extra-curricular activities. Over 90% of our student body participate in sports, drama, or one of our academic teams (Quiz Bowl, Model UN, Math League, or Science Olympiad).
 
Not only do our students take religion classes daily, but they are also required to perform works of mercy throughout the year. Of paramount importance is the lens through which we teach our classes, that of the Catholic worldview. We want students to know their faith and practice their faith, now and for years to come.
 
Call our admissions director to set up a tour or come in and talk about our programs, financial aid, and more.  
 
Sincerely,
Maureen Lewis (’84)
Principal
