Aquinas Academy of Pittsburgh

Southwestern PA’s only Preschool through Grade 12 Private Catholic School

A Preschool - Grade 12 Private Catholic School

A Proven Program for Academic Excellence

The Aquinas Academy curriculum is founded on classical education models — with a strong emphasis on the sciences and the humanities.

We have a comprehensive program of academic formation for students from Preschool through Grade 12.

Our curriculum is designed to prepare students for college by helping them achieve mastery over important academic disciplines. At the same time, we encourage their development of critical and independent thinking skills. Our goal is to equip students with the intellectual resources they need to thrive in an increasingly complex world.

Religion and Latin language are core elements of our curriculum. We also pride ourselves on giving students the finest possible education in Western civilization and philosophy.

With our small class sizes and dedicated, highly trained faculty, the Aquinas academic program is a proven success. In mathematics, our students are at least one year ahead of their counterparts in other schools. Their overall performance on standardized achievement tests ranks Aquinas among the very top schools nationwide, public or private. And our graduates are going on to study at some of the nation's top colleges and universities. College Acceptances
