Live, Online, Classical Education in the Catholic Tradition
Aquinas House of Studies assists families in forming the hearts and minds of students aided by the study of Scripture,
the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the Catholic Liberal Arts tradition.
Welcome to the Aquinas House of Studies! We specifically offer courses within the Roman Catholic tradition as we aim to assist families in forming the hearts and minds of students. The collection of courses offered here provides students with a path on which they can dive deeper into their Catholic faith through an exploration of Church History, Art, Culture, Music, Philosophy, and St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. The 2024-25 school year will be just our third full year offering classes catered to those who share in our Roman Catholic faith. We are delighted to further develop and expand our offerings, and we invite you to explore our courses below.

About the Aquinas House of Studies
Mission and Vision
Aquinas House of Studies seeks to support the spiritual formation of students into the image of Christ through fostering a strong prayer life fixed firmly in the liturgical traditions of the Church aided by the study of Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the Catholic Liberal Arts tradition. Loyal to the Magisterium and under the Blessed Virgin Mary’s mantle of protection, the Aquinas House of Studies seeks to guide students in diligent work, prayer, and praise so that along with our patron, St Thomas Aquinas, we may earnestly pray, non nisi te, Domine (Lord, nothing except you.) We offer classes under Scholé Academy for grades 4-12.
Chair of the Aquinas House of Studies
Monika Minehart, Chair of Aquinas House of Studies, has been working in Catholic Religious Education for over 15 years. She has taught both children and adults as a Youth Minister & Director of Religious Education. She has her B.A. in English and Early Christian Studies from the University of Michigan and her M.A. in Divinity from the University of Chicago with a focus in Biblical Studies and Koine Greek. Having observed teaching styles in a wide array of school settings in her own education and that of her children (homeschool, private, public & charter), she recognizes the necessity of restful learning wherever you may be attending school. Monika is passionate about helping revive truth in our world with relational ministry as the foundation of an exploration of literature, music, and art. She is delighted to teach at Scholé Academy in the Aquinas House of Studies as well as in the Great Hall.
