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.

2018-2019 Enrollment Now Open!

We love our school and we think your kids will too!  But, don't just take our word for it; come see us in action.  We'd be happy to show you around and answer any questions you have.  Just click the button below to request a tour or give Janine, our office manager, a call at 414-744-1214.

Parents, STAA is Your School Too!

Consider getting involved in your child's school experience.  STAA extends a lot of wonderful opportunities for parents to join committees, teams, projects, and lend a hand here and there.  Whether you're a working parent or stay-at-home, there is truly something for everyone and our committees are always looking for parents who are willing to help.

This past June, Seton recognized the hard work of four of our awesome STAA volunteers who went above and beyond last school year to help out--and we couldn't be more grateful. Click here to read more.

"Learning about God helps me be a better friend."

A Message from Mr. Edgeworth

Welcome to St. Thomas Aquinas Academy! 

Our school strives to prepare future leaders for lifelong stewardship through an academically challenging and faith-centered environment.  Through our mission-driven academic model, passionate teachers and strong parental involvement, we are one of Bay View’s highest achieving elementary schools! 

I am a product of catholic school education and know the importance of tying high quality instruction with faith-based catholic values.  As followers of Christ, we are called to serve our community and at St. Thomas Aquinas Academy, we develop our students into servants who work to make their community a better place. 

Thank you for visiting our page and welcome to our community! 

Through Christ, 

Frank Edgeworth, Principal

SETON-MAIN-HDR-LOGO-01.png

In 2016, we became one of nine Milwaukee County Catholic schools chosen to implement an exceptional educational model as part of the collaborative network of Seton Catholic Schools.  

As part of this new initiative by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee,  we are 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.
