Community Support Agencies

St. Thomas Aquinas strives for success for all of our students.  Towards that end both the Special Education and Special Needs Departments work closely with outside agencies.  We find that this collaborative effort with the community helps us to deliver the proper program to each student while preparing them for the next step beyond their high school years.  Listed below is several of the agencies we use as well as others that may interest parents of exceptional children.
