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.

“Here I am surrounded by other people my age who share my interests, who value their education as much as I do, and whom I can have fun with while still learning about big ideas. It is an awesome experience that I have never found anywhere else.”

“This is truly a Catholic center of learning because it reverberates with the ecclesial life of faith, a faith which unfolds the richness of reason and is given fervent expression liturgically, sacramentally, and through prayer, acts of charity, and a passion for justice.”

– The Most Rev. J. Michael Miller
