St. Agnes Catholic School is honored to cap its 75th anniversary celebrations with its second National Blue Ribbon School Award. In our three-year-old through 8th grade student population, our students literally grow up in our school, transitioning from learning from the example set by older students to eventually becoming the students who lead by example. Through this model students learn to live out their faith.

When asked what sets St. Agnes Catholic School apart, St. Agnes students, teachers, and parents all refer to its positive and collaborative spirit. This exceptional sense of community translates into a school in which students are known, valued, and taught as individuals; teachers are supported and encouraged; and parents are strong partners in their children's education.

This enthusiastic shared sense of identity and purpose meant that even during the pandemic, St. Agnes opened its doors, and teachers employed new teaching methods to ensure they met each student's needs. Teachers continued to differentiate instruction and to use specific instruction techniques such as the Orton Gillingham method to ensure that St. Agnes students met the expected standard of academic excellence. St. Agnes emerged from the pandemic as a thriving institution that inspires its diverse set of students each day to learn and grow in their faith.
