Our History and Tradition
St. Thomas High School (9th through 12th grade) became Fr. Gabriel Richard High School in 1977.
In 2003, a new high school building opened off-campus at Dominos’s Farms. The high school continues as the only Catholic high school between metro Detroit and Jackson.
In 2018, our school celebrated 150 continuous years of operation as the oldest Catholic school in the Ann Arbor area and one of the oldest in the country. Over the past century and a half, thousands upon thousands of students have passed through the halls and graduated from St. Thomas the Apostle School.
We are a destination school with students come from many communities surrounding Ann Arbor. Our student population is very diverse in culture, faith, and socio-economic background. St. Thomas the Apostle School has always been focused on offering an authentic and affordable Catholic education to families in the greater Ann Arbor area.
