Vision

In 2014, Saint Agnes School celebrated its 100th anniversary.  The school continues to be an important ministry of the parish.  We, as School Board and Faculty, commit to building upon the rich traditions of FAITH, COMMUNITY, and ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE that have come to define the school.  We make this commitment so that current and future generations of Saint Agnes students will have a rich elementary school experience, rooted in Gospel values and Catholic tradition, which will prepare them to take advantage of future educational opportunities.
