Aquinas High School is a Catholic, college-prep, private school located in Augusta, GA. As as Christian school, we emphasize high moral and ethical standards and strive for an integration of spirit, mind, and body in each student. Aquinas seeks to foster respect for all persons, to encourage responsibility in each individual, and to promote Christian service among its students. We also 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 Christian worldview. We want students to know their faith and practice their faith, now and for years to come.
