St. Thomas Aquinas College, A School for Future Leaders

St. Thomas Aquinas College (STAC) provides the resources needed for a successful future. It is a vibrant, independent, four-year liberal arts college in the NYC Metropolitan area, just 15 miles North of Manhattan, giving students quick access to learning, cultural, internship, and career opportunities in one of the world’s most exciting cities.

STAC’s 60-acre campus provides a safe, welcoming place for students to study at the undergraduate and graduate level and offers over 100 majors, minors, and specializations in the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Business, and the School of Education. STAC also provides students with the opportunity to participate in college athletics at the Division II, varsity, club, or intramural level.

Freshman or transfer students alike become an integral part of a vibrant, active community of thinkers and doers, athletes and leaders, researchers and scholars. Maybe a student becomes a government president or editor of STAC’s college newspaper. Maybe a student studies at Oxford through the College’s Honors Program, builds houses in Nicaragua or lends a helping hand on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation — the opportunities are limitless!
