The STA Difference

The mission of St. Thomas Aquinas High School is to transform the lives of our students through a rigorous Catholic education guided by the light of the Gospel.

Since opening its doors in 1960, St. Thomas Aquinas High School has become a model of academic excellence and 21st century educational vision for New Hampshire’s Seacoast. Remaining true to its founders, the School Sisters of Notre Dame, St. Thomas Aquinas maintains a mission to challenge, support and transform young adults so that they are wholly prepared to lead a life enriched by intellectual discourse and humanistic integrity.

In adherence to our mission, we offer students the opportunity to develop their unique gifts, to strengthen their personal faith and integrity, and to foster within them a commitment to justice, service and moral leadership.

We are proud of our Catholic tradition, our outstanding academic program and our comprehensive athletic, arts and extracurricular offerings.

St. Thomas Aquinas High School is a community where each student is encouraged to aim high- and then soar higher.
