One Program, Two Coasts

One Program, Two Coasts

In August 2019 Thomas Aquinas College launched a second campus on the beautiful, former site of a preparatory school in Northfield, Massachusetts. Students can now choose between two locations to pursue the College’s unique program of Catholic liberal education — California or New England.

The New England campus operates under the approval of the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education. The Board’s grant of authority is subject to stipulations, the most important of which requires the College to submit annual status reports during its initial five years of operation, providing narrative and statistical information on the institution’s ongoing compliance with the Board’s standards.

Have questions about the two campuses? We will try to answer them below.

“No one here tells us what to think. We read the great books, look into them deeply, and then discuss them actively in class, which has forced me to take responsibility for my own education.”

“I am deeply touched by the quality of the intellectual and spiritual formation that you offer. The study of philosophy should lead to a conviction that truth can be known, articulated, and defended. Your college shows that this is possible, and on a high level!”

– Rev. Wojciech Giertych, O.P.
