As language is fundamental to thinking, learning, and communicating in all cultures, St. Thomas Aquinas' English Department strives to develop each student's ability to understand and use language more fully. 

The English curriculum, in providing students with the opportunity to study literary, informational and mass media communications, allows them to experience the power of language in all of its forms. In keeping with curricular objectives, students are encouraged to become lifelong readers and thus learners through designated silent reading time in English classes. In addition, they are provided with opportunities for both formal and informal public speaking, as well as enrichment through various writing contests.
