VISIT Aquinas High School

Experience an environment where students excel.

As you drive up to our 14-acre campus, you might think you’re touring a botanical garden somewhere other than Augusta, GA. A beautiful setting brimming with flowers, palms, and fruit-bearing trees greets you. There’s an intentionality to the landscaping that ensures there’s always something blooming throughout every season. This same intentionality carries over to the education of every high schooler at Aquinas.

You’ll notice this when you meet our resident horticulturalist Mr. Le Vert, who also happens to be our senior religion teacher and most veteran instructor, with Aquinas roots dating back more than 40 years. The amount of attention and dedication he gives our landscape is surpassed only by the care and consideration he gives to each and every student. Mr. Le Vert is just one of more than 20 faculty members committed to the success of each young man and woman here.

See firsthand how students grow to their fullest potential in our private Catholic school, open to families of all faiths.

What You’ll See During Your Campus Visit

On your one-on-one tour, you’ll walk our beautiful campus, weather-permitting, and see plants from around the world, grown by students in our horticulture class. You’ll also learn about our history, dating back to 1957 when Boy’s Catholic and Mount St. Joseph Academy merged to form Aquinas High School.

You’ll be delighted by how bright and clean our facilities are as you visit the following:

  • Chapel
  • Cafeteria
  • Classrooms and media center
  • Hallways displaying student awards and artwork
  • Art room for instruction in various mediums and styles
  • Top-of-the-line weight room for student-athletes
  • Renovated gym with new flooring and bleachers
  • Modern athletic fields, opening in August 2024, with newly laid turf for football and soccer fields and CoolPlay technology to reduce surface heat
  • Science laboratories (including chemistry, physics, and life science labs)

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.
