Thomas Aquinas College opening of New England campus

In 2017, Thomas Aquinas College received the gift of a former high school preparatory school campus in Northfield, Massachusetts, from the National Christian Foundation. In 2018, it received approval from the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education to operate a second campus there. This second campus will open on Saturday, August 24, with 60 students (30 freshmen, 30 sophomores) and will grow to between 350 and 400 students. The college will offer on the New England campus the same fully integrated, classical program as it has offered at its California campus since the school’s founding in 1971, in which students read and discuss the Great Books in math, science, language, literature, philosophy, and theology under the light of the Catholic faith.
