Since opening in 1925, over 19,000 men and women have passed through the Aquinas Institute and into leadership positions throughout the Rochester community and beyond. Many alumni credit their personal and professional success to the Basilian Fathers whose motto, "Teach Me Goodness, Discipline and Knowledge," provided the very foundation of their education. The commitment to the vision of the Basilian Fathers continues as Aquinas encourages the intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual growth of students.
Many of our alumni have shared stories about how they benefited from financial assistance. For some, their Aquinas education was a gift that allowed them to prosper beyond their own expectations.
Now more than ever, Aquinas needs the support of our alumni and friends. Your gift helps to offset the rising cost of providing a superior Catholic education.
