The Aquinas Fund

Each academic year, The Aquinas Fund supports the difference between the cost to educate a student and the tuition paid by families. The Aquinas Fund is utilized in response to varied areas ranging from tuition to assistance to curriculum development.

The Aquinas Fund is crucial to the daily workings of The Aquinas Institute. The unique experiences of an academically strong, faith-based community rooted in Goodness, Discipline, and Knowledge offered at Aquinas is so important.

The feeling of family, faith and community is palpable to all who have been on our Aquinas campus. Help us to continue the cycle of giving that makes Aquinas a reality for our students each day with your contribution to the Aquinas Fund.
