Mitch Rapp Lives

Mitch Rapp is the main character in Vince Flynn's New York Times best-selling political thrillers. Vince was a Saint Thomas Academy alumnus of the Class of 1984 and part of a large family who attended the Academy, from father Terry '55 (former STA teacher/coach) to a nephew, class of '20.

While serving on the STA Board of Trustees and as the capital campaign co-chair, Vince was instrumental in raising millions of dollars to complete what is now Vincent J. Flynn Hall.

After a three-year battle with cancer, and two months prior to the opening of Flynn Hall, Vince passed away in June of 2013. Vince's signature tag line was KTF, Keep The Faith.

The Mitch Rapp character "lives" thanks to the continuation of this series by Kyle Mills/Simon & Schuster. American Assassin, which Vince released in 2010, was released in theaters in the fall of 2017 with an all-star cast.

All proceeds of the Mitch Rapp Lives items support the education of the STA Cadets. STA is a Catholic, all male, college prep and military/leadership high school. It’s superior education nurtures students’ faith and empowers them to become ethical, moral and servant-leaders who work for justice, peace and respect of others.

Our community has been blessed by Vince's, and his widow Lysa's, continued support of Mitch Rapp Lives and Saint Thomas Academy.
