Admissions at Aquinas High School

A Catholic college-prep experience welcoming students from all faith backgrounds 

Aquinas is ready to partner with your family and prepare your child for a bright future. See how we carry out our mission to educate young men and women to be people of faith, character, and scholarship.


Christian Faith

God is at the center of everything we do, guiding our mission and shaping our school culture.

Small Classes

We have a dedicated faculty, and our 15:1 student-to-teacher ratio allows for ideal student engagement.


Your child will be a part of our school family from day one and connect with classmates through clubs, sports, and our House System.

Academic Rigor

We offer college prep, honors and AP classes along with unique electives like forensics, robotics, and horticulture.


Our investment in competitive sports distinguishes us from other high school athletic programs in the Augusta area.

One of the best ways that Aquinas prepared me for college was by teaching me how to study. The difficult curriculum introduced me to the main ideas I am learning in my college classes. The teachers gave me the support I needed and instilled in me the skills and intellectual curiosity to be successful in higher education.
