St. Thomas Aquinas
Put another way, the study of truth and error, side by side, serves only to reinforce in the student the ability to be properly formed by the truth. The “due preparation” needed for this endeavor is provided by the Angelicum Academy in the primary years in the study of the liberal arts (the learning arts). To this are added both the Good and Great Books Programs, together with the optional, online Socratic discussion groups moderated by Catholic tutors trained for this purpose. By the time the curriculum gradually reaches the modern errors, the student is well into the high school years, and has been duly prepared to juxtapose truth and error.
In addition to offering all the services available, the Angelicum also provides a religious curriculum that is faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church and mindful of the teachings of Saint Thomas Aquinas. The Angelicum’s attentiveness to Saint Thomas’ theology is reflected in its name (The Angelicum Academy), which is taken from the informal title of the Dominican University of Saint Thomas Aquinas in Rome.
With the advent of The Angelicum Academy, homeschools and private schools at all grade levels now have: a classical curriculum, founded upon fidelity to the Church, teaching the liberal arts of learning, and reading and discussing the greatest books of Western civilization. Faith is thereby enabled to seek understanding, of what we must be and what we must do here below, in order to attain the sublime end for which we were created.
