About the Academy

In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic challenged the Office of the Superintendent ~ Catholic School Support Services, Diocese of Brooklyn, to find a way to deliver academic excellence and a faith-based community directly to our students’ homes. We rose to the occasion by establishing the St. Thomas Aquinas Distance Learning Program in September 2020. 

In August of 2021, the program will become the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Online Academy, a New York State Board of Regents-recognized Catholic online academy. 

St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Online Academy is offering a full K-8 curriculum, including religion, with live and asynchronous instruction.  This new online academy, like all Catholic Academies and Parish Schools within the Diocese of Brooklyn, is part of the mission of  the Catholic Church.  

St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Online Academy engages parents and students in a vibrant learning community that shares and enriches our Catholic faith tradition.
