The Aquinas Institute is a co-educational Catholic school in Rochester, New York established in 1902. Although the Aquinas Institute was founded as an all-male high school, it opened its doors to female students in 1982. It is located within City of Rochester. It has stood at its current location on Dewey Avenue since 1925. Over 18,000 have graduated since the school opening.

Buildings on campus

The main school building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Wegman - Napier Building, an extension of the main school building, houses science labs for biology and chemistry classes, as well as a renovated gym. Aquinas' biology labs were refurbished in 2007, and a 30,000 sq ft (2,800 m2) field house was built in 2008.

Aquinas constructed an on-campus stadium in 2005, known under sponsorship naming rights as the Wegmans Sports Complex. The new stadium was built twenty years after its previous football stadium, Holleder Memorial Stadium, was demolished in 1985.
