New Video & 2012 Dates

From July 22 to August 4, rising high school seniors from around the country will join members of the teaching faculty on the campus of Thomas Aquinas College for spirited conversation, engaging firsthand with some of the best minds of the past 2,500 years. They will read works from the masters of the Western intellectual tradition, including Plato, Euclid, Sophocles, Shakespeare, Pascal, Boethius and, of course, St. Thomas Aquinas. It will be a time for forging new friendships, for enjoying the give and take of rational argument, and for pursuing the truth, which civilizes, ennobles, and liberates.

The College’s Financial Aid Backbone

The President’s Council consists of those benefactors, some 350 in all, who each give at least $1,000 annually to the College. Together, they provide the nearly $4 million in financial aid that the College needs for qualified students each year. Members of the President’s Council have played a critical role in making the College what it is today — a vital resource for the Church and society. They are truly the College’s “angels.”
