“Teaching has an extraordinary moral depth and is one of humanity’s excellent and creative activities, for the teacher does not write on inanimate material, but on the very spirits of human beings.”

- The Catholic School on the Threshold of the Third Millennium

It has been such a blessing in my life to be enrolled in the Teacher Education, Graduate Studies Program at Aquinas. Nowhere else in the country could I receive such a high caliber education, enriched with the beauty of the Dominican Tradition. It is literally life-changing to goto a school where the Catholic faith is so alive and well, both in and out of the classroom. That school is Aquinas.

- David D.
M.A.T. Student

The Graduate Program in Education at Aquinas College is an educator’s dream. Tailored to the working teacher, the classes are not only convenient, but meaningful as well. After one semester of Aquinas classes I have a renewed love for education!
