ST. THOMAS AQUINAS SCHOLARS PROGRAM

Trinity Catholic High School is excited to announce our new St. Thomas Aquinas Scholars Program beginning with the 2016/2017 school year. The Scholars Program will combine accelerated academics with cultural enrichment and leadership development.

Incoming freshman students' performances on the school’s entrance examination as well as their academic record qualify them for placement in the program. Students accepted as St. Thomas Aquinas Scholars will undertake a challenging honors curriculum, leading to Advanced Placement courses beginning in their sophomore year at Trinity Catholic. Students in the Program will have the opportunity to enroll in up to ten AP courses, as well as additional on-line courses, throughout their high school experience/career. This will give students the chance to earn college credits while in high school and will serve as excellent preparation for undergraduate academic work.

The new Scholars Program will also feature monthly cultural and leadership opportunities. "The new St. Thomas Aquinas Scholars Program at Trinity Catholic High School will provide not only accelerated learning, advanced placement coursework and college credit opportunities, but also monthly cultural enrichment including exposure to theater, architecture and museums via educational visits to major regional cities such as Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Boston and New York City,” said Dr. Joseph Gerics, principal. "The new program has been in the planning stages for many months now and we hope incoming freshman students and their families are as excited about all the program has to offer as we are.”

The new Scholars Program will also offer students ongoing leadership training opportunities, including presentations by prominent alumni and community leaders.
