Welcome to St. Thomas Aquinas Academy

We are a fully-accredited Catholic school offering a high school preparatory curriculum in a faith-based, supportive learning environment.  We offer full-day K4 and K5 through 8th grade.  As Catholic educators, we provide a solid curriculum that fosters critical thinking, academic achievement and collaborative processes to prepare students for high school.  Beginning in K4, students learn computers, Spanish, music, art, physical education, and health.  Seventh and 8th grade students also participate in Project Lead The Way, a pre-engineering class.  

Catholic Christian values are at the heart of our school.  From K4 through 8th grade, children celebrate daily prayer, weekly mass, and student-led prayer services.  Priests from our cluster parishes join students for religion class. 

Students may participate in a variety of extracurricular activities, including soccer, volleyball, basketball, choir, hand bells, and our annual school play.


Our Mission

St. Thomas Aquinas Academy is a vibrant Catholic learning community, empowering and preparing future leaders for lifelong stewardship through an academically challenging and faith-centered environment.

"As a parent, I love the school's strong sense of community and spirit!"

2016 is going to be an exciting year for us!  We are one of nine Milwaukee County Catholic schools chosen to implement an exceptional educational model and be a part of the collaborative network of Seton Catholic Schools.  

As part of this new initiative by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee,  we are now collaborating as an active network that is strengthening the educational, community, and faith experiences of students, staff and community members.

Collaboration has a rich history in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. More than twenty years ago, education pioneers in areas like Beaver Dam and Waukesha redefined how we approach Catholic education – both in the classroom and in administrative support. Today, 24 of the 97 Catholic elementary schools in the archdiocese exist due to mergers of previously independent parish schools.

Seton Catholic Schools continues this tradition of collaboration that has worked relentlessly to improve education for the children of Milwaukee County. Moving into the future, this network seeks to improve student academic performance as part of the Seton Approach. It’s a holistic educational model for success.

As participants in the Milwaukee and Wisconsin Parental Choice programs, Catholic education is becoming more accessible for families of all socio-economic backgrounds through Seton Catholic Schools. The network promotes engagement between the school, parish and community.

By strengthening schools, the parishes and neighborhoods will also be strengthened: after all, it is said – it takes a village to raise a child.
