Our goal is 100 sponsors by October 1.

We are happy to report that last year we had many '5-year' Guardians who have supported us since the start of the program. Please consider joining today--and start your legacy--or add to your years already accumulated. We greatly appreciate your support!

Protecting the Future

A shield provides protection to the one who bears it. We strive to provide Aquin students with a shield of Responsibility, Respect, Faith, Leadership, Service, Knowledge and Character. But we can’t do it alone. We need the support--both spiritually and financially--of our parents, our alumni and our community.

In this vein, we ask you to support our ‘Guardian of the Shield’ program. As a supporter you will help protect the future of our students and our school system--and your rewards will be great.

With your support and the hard work and dedication of our families, staff, faculty and friends, we will keep the shield alive.

Guardian of the Shield Student Program

In recognition of the good things our students do and represent, we will name a 'Student of the Month' who displays the 'Shield' quality of the month from October-April at our elementary level, junior high level and senior high level. These qualities are:
  • Responsibility
  • Respect
  • Faith
  • Leadership
  • Service
  • Knowledge
  • Character

Teachers and staff nominate students to be recognized at each level. Administration selects the student at each level (elementary, junior high and senior high) who best exemplifies the quality of the month. Students will be recognized in local media--and receive a Jean Day Pass!
