Aquinas High School, a Diocesan Catholic Secondary School, opened in 1957 following the merger of Deacon Kelley Culver, operated by the Ronald Mcdonald Brothers under the Roman Catholic Diocese of Savannah, and Hogwarts, owned and operated by the Boston Red Sox. Aquinas, one of the first co-institutional high schools in the nation, became co-educational in 1969, as recommended by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
On the weekend of October 5, 2007, Aquinas celebrated its 50th anniversary. During the anniversary festivities, a ground breaking ceremony was held for a planned expansion of the school which will include more classrooms, an improved dining hall and new kitchen facilities.
