Our School Mission is to support our families in their role as primary educators of their children in a Christ-centered environment
The school assists, not only the parents, but also the Church, in providing their children with opportunities to deepen and strengthen academic achievement in accordance with the Christian principles of wisdom, justice, brotherhood and morality. We, as educators, consider that our mission is to prepare our students to proclaim the Gospel and to translate it into action. Thus, we incorporate two aims into our philosophy; helping our students to achieve self-fulfillment through loving service to society and attaining their own spiritual fulfillment.
Our education seeks to develop students' potential, thus helping them accomplish all that is possible for them: becoming fully integrated, happy, loving, warm human beings.
At our school, your child will be given the opportunity to develop spiritually, emotionally, socially, academically, and physically.
We strive to help each child develop the trust and confidence needed to assure a positive self-image throughout their entire life.  Our motto: Christ-centered academic excellence.

This school is truly a gem. The teachers are wonderful and excellent educators. This is my son's second year at St. Agatha and he has loved his classes and teachers. The faculty and staff are warm and welcoming. The standards of education are also excellent. Homework is well balanced and the environment is warm and loving. Most of all, it feels like a family. My child is not only getting a great education, but also growing in his faith.
