"Wonder is the desire for knowledge." St. Thomas Aquinas. At Aquinas Classical Academy we foster an environment of life-long learning among our faculty that overflows into the classroom. Students and faculty journey together on a common quest for knowledge by reading from the same primary sources and gleaning insights from the fundamental teachers of our school: the authors themselves.
MICHAEL BERTOTTI, HEADMASTER Michael comes to us from the Augustine Institute in Denver where he earned a master's degree in leadership and theology. It was from a desire to share the riches of our Catholic faith more effectively with students and colleagues that he entered graduate school. His younger years were spent in rural Northern California with six younger siblings. Later, while attending Thomas Aquinas College, he was formed in the liberal arts tradition. After graduation, he received spiritual formation as a Benedictine monk at Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey. Michael subsequently discerned out of the monastery and began teaching at Catholic schools. Among the many subjects he has taught, theology is his favorite. A few of Michael's hobbies include coppersmithing, classical guitar, and basketball. Welcome, Michael, to the Pacific Northwest!
