St. Agnes Academic High School is a culturally diverse Catholic High School for young women, founded by the Sisters of St. Dominic, that develops a strong foundation for lifelong learning.
By building upon each student's faith and challenging her full academic potential, our mission is to graduate women who are open to growth, intellectually competent, socially aware, morally discerning, and committed to being women of integrity and truth.
As the Christian community of St. Agnes Academic High School, we are called to know and to love God, and thus to know, love and accept ourselves.
By embracing the richness of our cultural diversity, we acknowledge and foster the God-given worth of each individual, encouraging respect for oneself and for others.
In our concern for others, we look to Jesus Christ who calls us to a life of service.
Guided by the Gospel values, we encourage our young women to become women of integrity and truth who are open to growth.
We nurture the intellectual competence of our young women so that they will be able to make sound moral decisions that will positively impact society.
With the help of the Holy Spirit who empowers us to appreciate and accept the uniqueness of others, we exist to educate the whole human being and to help the student develop spiritually, academically, socially and emotionally.

My daughter applied for several public high schools and was not accepted in the first round. After seeing what was left we deceided to check out St. Agnes. My wife and I were very impressed with the school as well as the student to teacher ratio. We met with Assistant Principal Mrs. Nicoletti and Principal Sr. Joan. Both were very pleasent to deal with. The school was also very clean. You could eat off the floors. It reminded me of what a Catholic school was when I went to St Leo's in the 80"s. I am looking forward to the next four years of my daughters life at St Agnes and watching her grow into a young woman.

The education I received from St. Agnes played a major role in my success as an adult in the business world, as well as my interpersonal relationships. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to ensure that their daughter becomes a well rounded, educated and spiritial person that will acheive whatever goal is aimed for.
