The principle of Teach Me Goodness, Discipline and Knowledge was the central life-steering belief and foundation upon which the Basilian Fathers established St. Thomas in 1900. Today, that ideal continues to shape who we are as a community, and propel us into an even more robust future.

The annual GDK Society event celebrates those supporters whose generosity with gifts of every size propels St. Thomas to provide an even greater impact on the areas that matter most to our prominent institution.  By investing in scholarships and student life, faculty and academic support, capital improvements and transformative opportunities, patrons equip the Basilian Fathers to drive the institution’s continued leadership and distinction in higher education.


Bound by a shared commitment to St. Thomas, members of our GDK Society assist president Fr. James Murphy, CSB and principal Dr. Aaron Dominguez ’96 in advancing our vision and new levels of excellence, strength and prestige.

As we celebrate moving forward, let us continue to frame every decision we make in our time-cherished values. Let us honor the generations of distinguished Eagles who came before us, and create an impressive future for those who come after us.

Not in pursuit of others. But in pursuit of the total measure of the Basilian mission.

Uncompromising Academics.  Uncommon Brotherhood.

Catholic. Basilian. Teaching Goodness, Discipline and Knowledge since 1900.
