Aquinas Scholars Program

The Aquinas Scholars program at Paramus Catholic High School is designed for academically gifted students and is by invitation only. This program involves an intensive set of classes along with a special interdisciplinary seminar during the senior year of high school. All high school courses in the Aquinas Scholars program are Honors or AP classes except one subject. The program meets or exceeds all requirements for a high school diploma in the state and provides additional academic experiences that prepare students for a wide range of university programs.

Paramus Catholic High School bases invitation decisions for the Aquinas Scholars program on a student's academic performance during the 7th and 8th-grade years. The admissions committee for the program also considers a student's performance on the Archdiocesan admissions exam and Paramus Catholic’s scholarship exam.
