ALUMNI

Forever a BLUGOLD

Welcome to Aquinas' alumni network.  As Blugolds, our bonds don't end with graduation. Whether you graduated last year or fifty years ago, Aquinas alumni are 'Blugolds for Life,' and we invite you to stay connected.

 

The Aquinas alumni network, is over 10,000 strong stretching from coast to coast in the United States and abroad. On this website, you can be an active and engaged member of the community, stay in touch and reconnect with your classmates, and keep up to date about alumni events happening throughout the year. 

 

If the Alumni Relations office can be of any assistance to you, please don't hesitate to contact our Development Director, Brad Reinhart '00.

 

Go Blugolds!

 

Alumni Directory

The Aquinas Development & Alumni Relations Office teamed up with Publishing Concepts Inc. (PCI) to produce an updated Alumni Directory for Aquinas High School. 

Each year, the Alumni Office receives a limited number of alumni updates from Blugold class representatives. By working with PCI, our goal was to extend our reach and reconnect with a larger portion of the Aquinas Family around the world. 

 

Up-to-date alumni information is critical to the mission of Aquinas High School. We strive to keep alumni connected to their school, classmates, preserve the history of our schools, and serve as a resource for class reunion activities. The last published Alumni Directory was more than 5 years ago. It was time to refresh!

 

We have a limited supply of copies yet available both digitally and in hard cover. If interested in receiving one a donation of $50 for a digital copy or $100 for a hard copy would be appreciated. Please contact Brad Reinhart or Holly Gerling at the Development & Alumni Relations Office by phone at 608-784-0707 or through email at brad.reinhart@aquinasschools.org
