“. . . Catholic education—and especially the Catholic School, the one place where such an education is made available in an integrated, consistent and clear manner—provides the ideal setting for rediscovering the faith anew and encountering the Lord Jesus as a Person. In a word the Catholic School is the finest herald and the strongest protagonist for the New Evangelization. Students, teachers, staff and parents together will rediscover the faith and encounter Jesus Christ, above all, in His Real presence in the Eucharist.” (Bishop Loverde)
St. Thomas Aquinas Regional School is dedicated to providing each student with a firm foundation in the Catholic faith and a Christ-centered environment where they may grow in truth and love. The school was founded in 1977 and is administered and staffed by the religious community of the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia and a lay faculty. It serves three Arlington Diocese parishes (Our Lady of Angels, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton and Sacred Heart) and has over 510 students from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.
Aquinas was named a Top 100 Virginia School by Johns Hopkins University and they have a unique Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) partnership with the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth. They also have a middle school sports program, an award-winning band and chorus, a strings program, and an Extended Day Program that operates from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm on school days.
