St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School Now Enrolling for the 2019-20 school year.
March 19, 2019 - Waterford, WI St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic school announced today that it is accepting applications for the 2019-20 school year. The school, located at 302 S 2nd Street, will offer educational curriculum beginning with a new 3K/4K program as well as its existing 5K - 8th grade programs. St. Thomas Aquinas school has been operating for 167 years and is the oldest parish school in the state of Wisconsin. Parish and school leadership are working in partnership with the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and other experts to introduce a revised curriculum beginning in the fall of 2019. The school will serve the academic and faith needs of the Waterford community by pursuing a curriculum built upon the Catholic faith with a focus on science, technology, engineering, liberal arts and math fundamentals.
In June of 2018, parish leadership created a task force to evaluate the viability of the school given recent enrollment numbers. After extensive research, recommendations were made to further differentiate the school by offering a curriculum deeply rooted in the catholic faith, built around science, technology, engineering, math and liberal arts. The recommendations were shared with all registered parish families who expressed their support for the approach. “St. Thomas has been and always will be committed tosupporting Catholic Education to the youth of this community” said Fr. Ed Tlucek, pastor. “We are very proud of our school and the dedicated staff that work each day to help develop our school children.”
St. Thomas also has a very strong faith formation program in place which currently provides religious education to over 400 registered grade school and high school students who attend local public schools. Work is underway to identity and provide further resources for this program as well.
