Give Day is October 13, 2020!
Each year, we rely on our Academy community of parents, students, grandparents, alumni and friends to help bridge the gap between tuition paid and the actual cost of delivering a Saint Thomas Academy education.
Often times, when people hear a nebulous term like 'annual fund', they think it's a slush fund. The reality is that the Aquinas Annual Fund does cover a wide variety of school needs, but these needs are targeted and identifiable. The Aquinas Annual Fund ensures every student has access to the school lunch program; it ensures every field trip and co-curricular is available to each of our students; it ensures that our faculty can access the most up-to-date professional development opportunities; it ensures that any family falling upon hard times doesn't lose access to a high quality Saint Thomas Academy education.
The Aquinas Annual Fund is THE fund the school relies upon the most, and Give Day is our single greatest day of giving to support this fund.

Without the generous contributions of donors, many students would not have the opportunity to attend Saint Thomas Academy. The socioeconomic diversity helps provide a well rounded student experience. Also, the Academy is beautifully maintained and viewed as a prestigious school because of donors like you. - Finn Chalmers '22
