As Saint Agnes School celebrates its 100th year, the rich traditions of faith, community, and academic excellence are evidenced in abundance. Woven into the fabric of this faith community, Saint Agnes families and faculty partner together to support students. Through this nurturing partnership, students are secure to explore their potential through engaging in the fine arts, S.T.E.A.M. curriculum, physical fitness programs, foreign language, history, social studies, stewardship, social justice, and religious studies. In addition to daily exposure to a rigorous and engaging curriculum, faculty members partner with people and organizations in the community to offer field experiences and wider world connections to what is learned in the classroom and school setting. Through the integration of technology, students and faculty can also bring the world into the classroom utilizing our 1:1 technology program in middle school and mobile digital learning stations for younger students. Support staff offer an extension to the Saint Agnes experience through their programs as well. A great variety of creative after-school clubs, music, art, sports, academic, technology, and service opportunities are available. Our cafeteria staff engages students in living out daily habits of health and nutrition with healthy food choices, vegetarian options, and other dietary choices. Our After School Care staff partner with faculty to extend programming in a balanced, high-quality way allowing for active outdoor play, creative engaging group activities, homework help, and nutritional snacks. Our partnership with local universities allows for faculty to remain current, relevant, and engaging in a rapidly changing society.
