Annual Appeal

Forty years ago a group of dedicated individuals saw their vision of a regional Dominica school come to fruition. On a September morning in 1977, the doors of St. Thomas Aquinas Regional School opened for the first time. As we opened those doors once again this year to the beautiful faces of our shining STARS students, we felt tremendous gratitude to our generous benefactors; it is through your support that we are celebrating 40 years of serving the Woodbridge community in the Diocese of Arlington.

As we celebrate our 40th Anniversary, we are both proud of all that has been accomplished and excited about what is yet to come. With the continued support of individuals like you, we are able to look to the future with a spirit of hope. Your contribution to the Annual Appeal continues the beautiful legacy of Catholic education at Aquinas for future generations.

A donation of any amount is greatly appreciated, but, in this our 40th year, we are asking you to celebrate with us by either making a donation of $40 or increasing your current donation by $40. There are a number of ways to give as detailed on the left sidebar.  If you have questions regarding other ways to donate, please contact Mrs. Pamela Howser at

We are grateful for your prayerful consideration of this Annual Appeal. Our benefactors and their intentions are often in our prayers as a school community. May God continue to bless you and keep your loved ones close to His heart.

Tuition Angels

The Tuition Angels program is for Aquinas families who are experiencing temporary hardships.  They may be unexpectedly out of work, have experienced a severe medical condition, or some other unforeseen circumstance.  Through Tuition Angels we are able to help them meet their tuition obligation through the end of the school year.


Over the years, our school has been blessed with many generous benefactors who demonstrate their support of Catholic education and honor their cherished loved ones through the creation of scholarships. If you are interested in establishing a memorial fund or would like to donate to a general scholarship opportunity, please contact Pamela Howser at We are happy to provide more information.
