This vision set forth by the Basilian Fathers, our Board of Directors, and President Fr. Murphy is for St. Thomas High School (STH) to be among the top ten all-boy, urban Catholic high schools in the country.

The opportunity to assist in moving STH from an exemplary organization to a top ten organization, while simultaneously expanding into the Joplin campus, will serve as the foundational focus of my leadership.


Welcome to St. Thomas High School, where teaching goodness, discipline, and knowledge to young men is our sacred mission. I am honored and humbled to serve the St. Thomas community for the 2020-2021 school year. Coming home to St. Thomas as principal is a dream job and one the Lord has prepared me for throughout my career as a teacher and school leader.

The next several years at St. Thomas will be exciting ones as we expand into the new Joplin campus, increase our enrollment, and set our sights on being among the top ten all-boy, urban Catholic high schools in the country. As we pursue these new endeavors we will continue and expand upon the St. Thomas traditions of academic and athletic excellence.

I look forward to meeting and working with each of you as we together explore and attain unprecedented levels of excellence at St. Thomas High School. If you see me at a school event, walking the campus, or out enjoying our wonderful city please come up and introduce yourself, say hello, and share one thing that makes St. Thomas special.

Yours in Christ,
Aaron Dominguez ‘96
