Aquinas Academy

Welcome to Aquinas Academy!  We are a consolidated Catholic school sponsored by the Diocese of Greensburg and the parishes of the diocese.  We respect and recognize the individuality of each student and acknowledge the unique challenges of youth in a
pre-kindergarten through sixth grade structured curriculum.  

We believe that Catholic education is a responsibility shared by all members of the family, parish, school, and Diocese of Greensburg. Our school is centered in Christ's teachings and Catholic doctrine. We believe each student is created with unique talents and intellect, and that our rigorous curriculum challenges students to achieve their potential as they strive for excellence within the formation of the faith, academics, and success in life. Our students have a right to a safe, positive, nurturing learning environment with mutual respect demonstrated throughout the school community. Finally, Aquinas Academy will encourage students to serve the Church and the greater community, through lifelong evangelization.

Graduates of the schools of the Diocese of Greensburg will be: 

  • Knowledgeable   Students have mastered a strong academic foundation and are able to apply skills, facts, and knowledge in real world environments.

  • Future Ready   Students are able to think critically, solve problems, use information, communicate and innovate. They are flexible, adaptive, collaborative, creative and globally aware and are able to compete in a global society.

  • Educators   Students will find ways to share their faith and academic knowledge with others. 

  • Leaders   Students will be able to work cooperatively for the good of all, accepting the freedom and responsibility leadership brings. They will be encouraged to act with integrity, and to make ethical, responsible, and moral decisions. 

  • Disciples of Christ   Students will evangelize through their words and actions. 

  • Problem Solvers   Students will develop their natural curiosity and encounter the world and embrace the future with a sense of imagination and wonder. They will acquire the skills necessary to conduct inquiry and research and show independence in learning. They will apply thinking skills critically and creatively to recognize and approach complex problems and develop solutions. 

  • Catholic Social Teachers   Students will show empathy, compassion, and respect towards the needs and feelings of others. They will have a personal commitment to service, and to making a positive difference in the lives of others. 

  • Life Long Learners   Students will work to build personal growth and are intrinsically motivated to continue the learning process throughout one’s life.

Our school strives to provide families with confidence that their investment in Catholic School education supports complete development and personal success.  Aquinas Academy empowers each student with educational fundamentals and Gospel values.  

Our school and its predecessors provided our community with an impressive history of academic excellence, dating back to the former St. Benedict School in 1862.​
