Patron Saint of St.Thomas Academy
The Birth-year of Thomas Aquinas is commonly given as 1227 , but he was probably born easily in 1225 at his father's castle in Roccasecea in Neapolitan territory.He Died at the monastery of Fossanova,one mile from Sonnino, Mar. 7 ,1274. His father was count Landulf of an old high-born south Italian family, and his mother was Countless Theodora of Theate, of noble Norman descent.
Founded in 1919, St Thomas Academy (STA) was originally named St. Thomas Colleg. During the outbreak of the war in 1936 the original school was completely damaged.
Two years after the war ,however,STA rose from its ashes and opened great possibilities through the aid of concerned and dedicated school administrators headed by Atty. Jose M. Hernandez(President) and Mr. Vicente Platon (Principal)
