A Catholic Education Rooted in the Dominican Tradition

Aquinas College’s academic programs are rooted in the Dominican Tradition, a Catholic spiritual and intellectual tradition entering its eighth century. By the inclusion of philosophy and theology in each course of study, the academic programs facilitate the “dialogue between faith and reason” (Ex Corde Ecclesiae, 17).

Thus, Aquinas College prepares students for their professional lives through studies in the School of Education by upholding the universal Catholic principles of the good, the true, and the beautiful.
