Aquinas College is a Roman Catholic School; therefore all of its teachings are in accordance with the spiritual and moral standards of the Roman Catholic Church. It is the philosophy of this school that all students should be concerned with their spiritual, mental, physical, social and educational growth. This is paramount so as to instill in our students Christian principles and values that will enable them to take their rightful places in the Bahamian society and the world at large.
The Administration and staff of Aquinas College are concerned with the spiritual, mental, physical, social and educational growth and development of all of our students. This concern is of the greatest importance so as to instill good Christian principles and values, thus helping to assure and prepare them to take their places not only in our Bahamian society but the world at large.
Aquinas College Celebrates its 60th Anniversary beginning January 2017
In the 1950’s The Bahamas was indeed a different place. It was a time of tranquility, with less crime, more neighborly concern and simple living. Yet in the background, subtle differences were festering to a point that threatened the very way of life in the bustling metropolis. Minority rule was the order of the day. There were barriers in just about every area of social strata. Movie theaters and clubs were segregated. Positions in banking, law and the other professions were limited to a miniscule number. Salaries and wages were different for persons performing the same jobs. However, in the field of education, change was beginning to blow and a soft gentle breeze was felt in December 1956, when five Dominican Sisters arrived in Nassau. These nuns would prove to be pioneers in business education at Aquinas College. They were Sister Jean Patricia McGowan, Sister Mary Adrian Brennan, Sister Carmel Decker, Sister Jean Kevin Afderherd and Sister Marie Peter Hafey. These Dominican sisters were given a two-storey building on Mount Rose Avenue, and it is there in the converted Hibiscus Inn, in January 1957, that Aquinas College was born. Read More . . .
