Saint Agnes School offers a challenging, integrated liberal arts program that prepares students for college, life and beyond. The curriculum underlines the unity of faith and reason and seeks to form students into confident, intelligent and faithful young adults.

Rooted in the tradition of Catholic education, the curriculum is broken down into the divisions of Grammar (K-6), Logic (7-9) and Rhetoric (10-12) focusing on religion/theology, literature, history, philosophy, mathematics, science, fine arts and foreign language study.

The educational model emphasizes the Virtues, the Catholic intellectual tradition and their origins in the Greco-Roman world.

Statement on Common Core State Standards (CCSS)

Due to increased inquiries from current and prospective families, Saint Agnes School has issued the following statement about Common Core State Standards:

After much consideration and research, Saint Agnes School will not adapt or adopt the Common Core Standards which were developed for the public school system.  That said, we acknowledge that there is a base of adequate secular material in the Common Core State Standards that faith-based schools could reference as part of their educational programming. While we respectfully understand that other private and Catholic schools may discern to adapt or adopt the standards for these and other reasons, we do not believe that such actions would benefit the mission, Catholic identity or academic excellence of our school. 

The decision not to adopt CCSS will not in any way have a negative effect on our students; Saint Agnes School will continue to assess various standards of excellence in primary and secondary education as well as college readiness norms to develop its own, independent standards of rigor and accountability.  We believe that it is of primary importance to infuse elements of the Catholic intellectual tradition into our curriculum; we believe this heritage is an integral component of Catholic education and a distinguishing element of Saint Agnes School’s academic program.

To conclude, we believe that our school ought to offer a distinct alternative to the public school model – one that is grounded in faith and the pursuit of truth, beauty and goodness.  We believe that Saint Agnes is a model par excellence of Catholic education that works. 

For questions on Common Core State Standards, please contact the Academic Dean.
