Vision + Leadership + Enthusiasm + Commitment = St. Agnes Catholic School.

Being a numbers guy (I’m a CPA) I have calculated that between the immediate family of my wife Mary and my immediate family, almost 50 of us have received a Catholic education that included grade school, high school and college.
