All faculty members are accredited by the Commonwealth of Virginia or the Virginia Catholic Education Association, and 70% of teachers hold post-graduate degrees.  The diverse faculty speaks 7 languages and includes dedicated music, art, Spanish, and computer teachers. Teaching teams meet weekly to share strategies and best practices, many of which are gleaned from professional development opportunities funded by the Parent-Teacher Organization. The Saint Agnes community is committed to retaining and attracting teachers with strong academic and professional credentials who believe in the vocation of teaching in a Catholic school.
