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.

“In our classroom discussions, we are responsible for our own education. We have to get our hands dirty, to figure out the material, to let it become part of us and make us better people. That is real learning.”

“I am full of admiration for what the College, its founders, its leadership, its faculty and staff, and its students and alumni have achieved.”
