About Us


STA About Us St. Thomas Aquinas High School and Middle School is a private, Catholic, coeducational school operated by the Diocese of Youngstown. The faculty and staff at STA serve students in grades 6 through 12 from eastern Stark County and portions of Portage County. The traditions of Truth, Scholarship and Excellence began in 1964, when St. Thomas Aquinas opened as a co-institutional school with a girls’ division staffed by the Sisters of St. Frances of Mary Immaculate, and a boys’ division staffed by the Brothers of Christian Instruction. In 1970, the school became coeducational. St. Thomas Aquinas High School is an educational community of students, faculty, parents and clergy committing themselves to seeking truth and excellence as an extension of the Catholic Church community. The school provides an environment in which the teaching, learning and application of Christ-centered values in the Catholic faith tradition encourages and fosters religious maturation, academic growth and social development among all members of the St. Thomas Aquinas High School community. We exist to serve by preparing our students to become effective members of the Christian community as well as the larger world community.
