The reason for the existence of St. Agnes School is to offer to the parents and children a Catholic School, a school where the philosophy gives direction to every part of what happens in the educational program. The key word is philosophy. The philosophy is based on the belief that Christ is the reason for this school. He is the unseen but ever present teacher. He is the model of the faculty and the inspiration of the students. St. Agnes School is the extension of the Parish’s work, of spreading the teachings of the Church. Hence, the philosophy directs the school’s total curriculum. We proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to promote the highest ideals, to encourage community service, and to prepare our students for the challenges of life in the 21st century.
Religion classes are held four days a week for 40 minutes. Mass is attended once a week – the fifth day of Religion class.
Our curriculum strives to spiritually help the students to:
- To know Jesus – Through formal religious instruction as well as through the integration of the faith dimension into each academic subject area and social activity.
- To love Jesus – through participation in the sacramental life of the Church as well as through the constant guidance of the Holy Spirit within our community.
- To bring others to Jesus – Through our witness as well as in answering the call to serve and help those in need within our community.
