Welcome to St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School in Russell, Ontario.
Our high school is a caring Christian community founded in Catholic values, dedicated to academic excellence and committed to preparing students to meet the challenges of the future. Our school's vision is a "Commitment To Excellence in a Catholic Learning Environment" in serving all our students.
We look forward to having you meet our dedicated staff and dynamic student body. Our staff would be happy to provide a tour of our state of the art facility that opened its doors in September 2004.
Come and witness our Raven Spirit that is so evident in our school community with the many extra and co-curricular activities offered by our committed staff for our students. We invite you to visit our school's website at www.sta-russell.com for a listing of all our teams and clubs our staff offer for our students at St. Thomas Aquinas catholic High School.
Our high school in Russell has been named after the universal patron saint of all Catholic schools. St. Thomas Aquinas is one of the greatest thinkers our Catholic Church has ever known. He combined great learning with great humility. It is inspiring to have such a faith example for all of us to look to in our Catholic High School.
The staff and Mr. Palumbo and I will continue to work in partnership with our students, parents and Parish community members along with Fr. Paul Nwaeze in teaching our students to follow the ways of Jesus through thoughts, words and actions at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School.
We leave you with our School Prayer from our Patron Saint: "May God grant you a mind to know Him, a heart to seek Him and wisdom to find Him."
Yours in Catholic Education,
Donna Koekkoek, Principal
Danny Palumbo, Vice Principal
