    Mission Statement Thomas Aquinas College has a single mission: the liberal education of students according to their natural powers of reason illuminated by the light of the Catholic Faith. This mission is the end by which all means are judged – from customs of community life to curricular decisions and faculty appointments, to building design and forms of governance. +++

    To accomplish its mission, the College has a single, substantially unvarying program with no majors, minors, or electives. It consists in an integrated and orderly study of the liberal arts and sciences, beginning with the fundamental arts of the trivium and quadrivium, proceeding through the natural and political sciences, and culminating in theology. The College achieves its mission chiefly through reflective consideration of seminal questions raised in classical texts. These texts – often referred to as the “Great Books” – are selected by the faculty under the guidance of the Catholic tradition. In accordance with this tradition, the works of St. Thomas Aquinas occupy a preeminent position in the College’s curriculum. +++

    Classes are seminars and tutorials: groups of fifteen to twenty students discussing the readings under the guidance of a faculty member. A laboratory program provides students laboratory experience in addition to the reading of primary texts. Tutorials, seminars, and laboratories are complemented by a lecture and concert series. This offers students an opportunity to witness and discuss the scholarly and artistic works of the wider community. +++

    The College’s educational principles and curriculum arise from an intellectual tradition which does not fluctuate with the vicissitudes of time, founded as it is in a perennial wisdom by which the truth and merit of new insights and discoveries may be best understood. The College aims to sustain the natural wonder of students, to develop their intellectual virtues, and to help them satisfy their desire to know things noble and worth knowing.

Service Scholarships

Scholarship Description
The first type of assistance provided by the College itself is in the form of on-campus employment, administered under the Service Scholarship program. Students who are awarded a full Service Scholarship are expected to work 13 hours per week for 35 weeks in such areas as food service, buildings maintenance, grounds maintenance, the library or office clerical work. For this work, credit in the amount of $3,774 is given against room and board. Some Service Scholarship recipients are needed to work during the Thanksgiving and Easter vacations since many students remain on campus during these holidays and basic services must continue to operate. Supervisors have the final say over who is scheduled to work during these holidays. A student who has accepted a Service Scholarship agrees to abide by the work schedule assigned to him by his department supervisor. Supervisors will see to it that Service Scholarship duties do not conflict with scheduled class times. If a student does not perform his Service Scholarship duties in a satisfactory manner, as determined by his supervisor, he may be found ineligible for financial assistance (Service Scholarship and Grant) from the College in subsequent semesters. Service Scholarship wages are taxable income. No state or federal taxes are withheld by the College, so a student may face a corresponding tax liability at the end of the year if his total taxable income for the year exceeds the tax threshold for his filing status. Please plan accordingly.
