We are proud to announce our support Thomas Aquinas College!

Founded in 1969, Thomas Aquinas College is dedicated to renewing what is best in the Western intellectual heritage and to conducting liberal education under the guiding light of the Catholic faith. Four decades later, the College’s ranks have swelled to the maximum capacity of 350 students, and a roster of distinguished faculty has expanded accordingly. While holding true to its founding vision, the College has earned a national reputation for academic and spiritual vigor, becoming a model for the many new, faithful Catholic schools that have followed. The College must raise $4 million each year to meet students’ financial aid needs.

We are honored to contribute to Thomas Aquinas College. We want to continue help make this unique form of Catholic liberal education available to as many students as possible.
