Latest Announcement

Easter break begins tomorrow, Thursday, April 9.

Gov. Murphy has ordered an extended closure of schools for an indefinite period of time. Therefore, we will continue with virtual learning when we return to school on Monday, April 20.

All student extracurricular activities scheduled for May, excluding sports, have been cancelled. The resumption of our sports activities will be determined at the county and state level.

For any student who was scheduled to take the ITED test on Thursday, April 9, please note the test has been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.

In the spirit of the season, we are inviting students to participate in a letter writing campaign to thank all of our health workers on the front line in the battle against Covid-19. Students, you were sent a notification in Canvas on how to participate. We hope you find the time to do so.

Finally, on behalf of the faculty, staff and administration, we wish you a happy Easter filled with joy and gratitude. God bless you and let us continue to pray that we remain safe and healthy and for an end to this pandemic.

Principal

Building the foundation for infinite possibilities

Each of our students is great in his or her own way and we have over 10,000 alumni who are examples of it. That's why we want to offer every possibility that we can for them to succeed academically, athletically, spiritually, artistically, and socially. From our diverse programs to our supportive faculty, students who come to St. Thomas Aquinas will graduate as the best versions of themselves.


Exceptional education starts here


From the most serious AP® courses to the most fascinating electives, STA offers courses that meet students' interests and academic abilities.

Be the best you can be »

Teams that build talent and character


Some of our teams have the most division and conference wins in Greater Middlesex County but character, teamwork, and sportsmanship are taught as fundamentals to all our athletes.

Gain strength, gain character »

An extracurricular niche for everyone


Our philosophy is that extracurricular activities should complement and reinforce students' academic courses while giving them the opportunity to expand their horizons and meet new people.

Find your niche »

Forming morally strong servant leaders


St. Thomas Aquinas said that, "Charity is the form, mover, mother and root of all the virtues." Service and charity form the foundation of spiritual formation for students of all faiths.

Discover your true self »

Take the spotlight, no experience necessary


Our award-winning drama, music, and graphic arts programs are second to none but are also unique for the individual attention that students receive, including those who have never performed or played an instrument before.

Reveal the artist inside of you »

It's not just a school, it's a home


As soon as you walk through the doors you will understand that there's more to STA than the outstanding academics, athletics, fine arts, and Catholic programs. There is a sense of belonging that emanates from students and teachers alike.
