The Saint Agatha School difference you will feel it the moment you walk through our doors. It is a community where relationships are at the center of everything. It is a special place, an amazing environment where children not only learn, but thrive. They becoming thoughtful, well-rounded, and well-educated students who are comfortable with themselves and exceedingly well prepared for everything. There is recognition that every student has unique, God-given gifts and all effort is given to recognize, encourage, and teach each child to use them to the fullest. At Saint Agatha School, the bar is set high, but the same bar is not used for every student. By focusing attention on all children as individuals, the faculty is able to meet them where they are, challenge them, and raise them to their highest levels.

Understanding that an important component of a life well lived is the ability to communicate clearly and thoughtfully, special emphasis is placed on public speaking. Beginning in kindergarten, all students are required to speak publicly in front of their classmates, and in third grade students start reading to the congregation at Mass. With an always kind and encouraging audience, even the quietest of our students learn to speak with clarity, confidence, and joy.

There is commitment to the whole child. We strive to educate the whole child, helping all students become confident and lifelong learners, thoughtful communicators, compassionate and kind individuals, faithful stewards of the Catholic faith, and honorable members of their local communities.
