Admissions Open House

Aquinas Academy is pleased to offer Admissions Open Houses several times throughout the school year, enabling prospective families the opportunity for a closer look at what makes Aquinas Academy successful in independent Catholic education and the best value in private education.

Please visit this page again in the fall for more information about the next scheduled open house.

Admissions Process

In our admissions process, we evaluate student transcripts or portfolios (if previously home-schooled) and consider teacher and family recommendations. Applicants for grades 4 and above are required to complete an admissions test.

An important element of the process is a family interview at which parents and the prospective students meet with us to discuss their educational goals and the nature and mission of Aquinas Academy.
