The first St. Vincent School Board was formed at the request of St. Andrew’s Church pastor, Monsignor Priester, in 1959. The children in the east part of the parish had been attending St. Mary’s School situated on what is now the parking lot of St. Andrew’s Church. The Christian name of the Monsignor was Vincent, so that’s why the school was named St. Vincent after St. Vincent DePaul in recognition of Monsignor Priester.As originally published by St Vincent Catholic ES

“Our school is named after St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) who was a Catholic scholar and theologian. Our school motto is “Aequalitas, Veritas, Excellentia” which translates to “Equality, Truth, Excellence”. St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School, together with home, church, and community, values the uniqueness of each person and is dedicated to life-long learning, personal development, and spiritual growth. Through the cooperative efforts of our staff here at STA, we are excited to be able to offer our students a comprehensive academic program as well an outstanding co-curricular program. Included in our academic program is Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) in Health Care Science/Medical Technologies and the International Baccalaureate (IB) program.
