During the fall of 2010, a committee (students guided by several teachers and parents) was formed to identify and articulate Aquin’s core values as a response to the negativity, meanness, and bullying that are so prevalent in our culture today. The result of the students’ discussions and decisions regarding the standard of expectation and measurement for all who belong to the Aquin community have become Aquin's Core Values.
