The St. Thomas Aquinas High School Athletic Program is an extension of the classroom. We believe that participating in interscholastic athletics enriches the educational experience of our students. Our student-athletes become well-rounded and engaged members of our community. The combination of academics and athletics fostered at St. Thomas Aquinas maximizes the overall experience for the entire family.
