Saint Agnes Catholic School is a Christ-centered community emphasizing academic achievement, faith formation, and charity toward others. Saint Agnes cultivates the potential of the whole child through a rigorous course of academic and religious instruction in a safe and caring environment.
At Saint Agnes Catholic School, we believe that in guiding the students’ spiritual, academic, and emotional areas, we will prepare them to embrace life’s challenges and strive for personal excellence in the example of Jesus Christ.
“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations….
Teaching them to carry out everything I have commanded you.” ….Matthew 28:19-20
These words of Christ addressed to the apostles at the Ascension bestowed on the Church the office of teacher. Obedient to this divine challenge, the Church provides education permeated with the spirit of Christ and dedicated to promoting the full development of the human person. The two-fold goal of Catholic schools is to provide an environment which will foster rich religious training as well as solid academic education in a Catholic value-oriented manner.
