We had a wonderful experience at St. Agnes Academy- St. Dominic School. Our son is in his fourth year at the school and our daughter started this year. The sense of community has been a huge blessing to us. It is so comforting to know that our children are loved and cared for physically, mentally, and spiritually. The school does a great job of connecting students of different ages and allowing them to learn from and support each other. Also, the student-to-teacher ratio provides an individualized approach to learning while in a group setting. It is such a unique school setting where we can have both our son and daughter on the same campus while catering to their different educational needs. Providing a coed experience and then strategically separating to all boys/all girls at pivotal times is one of the many factors that sets SAA-SDS apart. We love SAA-SDS and are excited to see what the future has to offer and how it is shaping our children into successful and well-rounded individuals.

SAA-SDS is an outstanding school that provides my children with a strong Catholic education, fosters meaningful relationships between its students, faculty, and school families and ensures a well-balanced schedule for its students. I am proud to say my children attend SAA-SDS as they mirror our beliefs and are truly helping us mold our children into who they were meant to be.

Our son and daughter have thoroughly enjoyed their time at St. Dominic & St. Agnes so far. We cannot recommend this school enough! The teachers, curriculum, and overall environment are more than we could have ever hoped for them.

St. Agnes Academy/St. Dominic School is a home away from home. My husband & I have 2 daughters that have attended since 2K & they are both thriving academically, socially & personally. Every teacher is hand-picked & they go above & beyond to know your child & help them be the best person they can be. Choosing a school for your child is a huge decision & when you walk in the door of our school, you will know you are home.

We love the small class sizes and the teachers` hands-on teaching styles at St. Agnes. The teachers work hard to find activities to engage your child in a way that will help them grow. Not only will your child`s teacher know how they learn best, but they`ll also know them as a whole person- their personality, their friends, you as parents, etc. It feels like family. We love the Christian environment and Biblical teachings. We love the single gender lower school classrooms so that our girls learn to be confident leaders, but we also like how they still interact with their male counterparts through mass, field trips, book clubs, etc. We also appreciate all the social skills they learn in some co-ed classes in junior high, as well as the Early Childhood Center. We are thankful for the administration`s long-term focus on our children`s education and spiritual growth, but they can also be found spontaneously jumping in a bounce house with the kids or reading to classes. We love our school!

My son went to St. Dominic School for 11 years. I know I'm his mother, but he is so compassionate, loyal, service-minded, and smart! He was fully prepared for his high school experience. An honor student with a high score on the ACT that helped him acquire academic-based scholarships to multiple colleges and universities, he received his foundation for life at St. Dominic School. I am so thankful we chose St. Dominic School for my son's education.
