Standards, Benchmarks, and Planning

St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School has adopted the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools, to guide our efforts in assessing, strengthening, and sustaining our operations.  Our standards describe our policies, programs, structures, and processes. Our benchmarks are observable, measurable descriptor for each standard.

Based upon the National Standards and Benchmarks, under the direction of the Parish School Council, a new Strategic Plan for the school was adopted in 2015.  The Plan will give overall direction for the school for the five years.
