Want to do something this summer that will look great on your résumé ... but could actually change your life? 

At Thomas Aquinas College’s Summer Great Books Program, you will be challenged to wonder ...

... to think about and discuss the big questions — questions that philosophers, scientists, mathematicians, poets, and saints have asked throughout history — and hunger for the answers:

“What is man?”

“Can we come to know anything with certainty?”

“Does God exist?”

It is your turn to wonder about these fundamental questions and step closer to knowing their answers! The Summer Great Books Program will help you to start down the path toward wisdom. 

Students the California 2019 High School Summer Program

After your two weeks on the program, your verbal jousting skills will be sharper than ever. Every class is conducted using the Discussion Method, beginning with a question designed to help you think deeply about the text at hand. 

You will dive into some of the best works of the past 2,500 years, selected from the masters of the Western intellectual tradition — Plato, Pascal, St. Thomas Aquinas, and Kierkegaard, to name a few.

These authors have all attempted to answer these foundational questions about reality, all of them in search of the truth.

We want to give you the opportunity to consider these same questions, to pursue truth.

Will you accept the challenge?

Reserve your spot on the program today!

“Thomas Aquinas College was outstanding preparation for my future career. The great books curriculum hones critical-thinking and problem-solving skills that are absolutely essential every day in law school and as an attorney. To receive this education while also attending a school with a deep and profound Catholic culture was the most valuable college experience I could have had.”
