You can't put a price on peace of mind. Our children are being challenged academically while living and learning their faith. The teachers truly care about each student and are willing to go to great lengths to see each child succeed. We are proud to call our children Aggies...and they are just as proud to be called an Aggie.

We all take pride in St Agnes grand accomplishments. Enrollment up, academics soaring, widows & roof replaced, air conditioning is coming. The athletic programs are excelling which includes a State Championship. Academically St Agnes is at the top with a rigorous academic program ideal for preparing students for life & college. Recently named to the national Top 50 Catholic High School Honor Roll by Cardinal Newman Society, recognized for academics, civic education & Catholic identity. St Agnes stands out, unsurpassed locally for what it represents and offers. It is orthodox in faith where God is revered. The staff is dedicated & committed to excellence, where academics are of the greatest importance. The church & religious services have a traditional physical beauty & spirituality beyond description. Their student Rome & Holy Land Vocations Pilgrimage is offered nowhere else. St Agnes can be a place of higher learning & one s spiritual home today, as they prepare for their heavenly home to come. While we all have different capabilities & needs, St Agnes is a very special place that has much to offer many. St Agnes can be an aid in being everything God created you to be.

My school is St. Agnes in St. Paul, MN. I am proud to send my children to this school. St. Agnes has the mission that we are looking for. Their goal is "to get these kids to Heaven". My kids tell me time after time how they like the teachers because they make learning fun and they keep "me interested". My children are engaged in their education because they are drawn in by teachers who care about their well being. The school also offers Latin Mass to the kids. The choir--made up of students--provides music that moves you like no other music could. I know my children are receiving a faith filled education at this school. This Parish has a history of praying for and supporting religious vocations that are much needed at this date and time. St. Agnes has grown rapidly and I pray that it stays as humble as the first day we went there.

Our schools has a fantastic curriculum and exceptionally devoted teachers! It is a high quality Catholic education and strongly committed parish support. With a stellar singing program, plays in which EVERYONE learns to dance, competitive sports teams, school travel, altar serving, and clubs, our children have plenty of extra-curricular choices . I love having all my children in the same school-especially during our spring musicals when the leads take the time to "high-five" the grade school kids and cheer them on.

When I first called Saint Agnes to enroll my child, at the end of the phone conversation, the receptionist said to me, "Welcome to the family." I feel like that pretty much says it all. Since then, Saint Agnes has felt like an extended family -- where all of our children (and their cousins!) will be going to school together from kindergarten through twelfth grade, where everyone knows and takes care of each other, and where Catholic values and the expectation of excellence are a continuation of what we strive to teach at home. I would encourage anyone to join this growing, flourishing family!

Awesome teachers...our History teacher is a Macalester grad whose classes are engaging and full of interesting trivia. Our Chem teacher is AMAZING and makes even Chem Class seem fun. Our English teacher is a native of SCOTLAND and is a blast to hear. Academics at St. Agnes are some of the best in the Twin Cities.

St. Agnes is such a wonderful, little piece of heaven on earth! I have one child that graduated from here and went on to earn straight A's in college. I have another child graduating this year and two in the grade school. All of the children love it and come home every day with happy remarks. I've watched the school grow and change over the years and am so impressed by the staff and the families that make up this school. It's a high quality education with a rich, Catholic history. The academics are thorough and challenging. The Concert Chorale and theatre are amazing! It's a warm and nurturing environment where any child will feel welcome. The children leave this school with an incredible classical education, a love for their faith, and a healthy, mature world view.

As a parent of four Saint Agnes School graduates, I can state with great pride and satisfaction that our children received an excellent and challenging education, provided by caring, competent and virtuous teachers who were led by an outstanding administrative team. In addition, multiple generations of "Aggie" family members enjoy ongoing relationships with the school, volunteering their time, talent, and resources to support the students and staff, and contribute to a warm and loving environment in our beautiful school building and church. Our children enjoyed the invigorating, small classes, personal relationships with extraordinary teachers, exciting and meaningful extracurricular activities, and, above all, the pervasisve and positive atmosphere of a school that is grounded in love for Jesus Christ and his Church. We were very, very pleased with the education our children received and would recommend Saint Agnes School whole-heartedly. The motto of Saint Agnes School is "Rooted in Faith and Tradition, Growing in Wisdom." --If faith, tradition, and wisdom are what you are looking for in a school, I believe you will be very happy with Saint Agnes School, too.

As a parent of 2 students in the High School at Saint Agnes, I am proud to say, that I would not send my children to any other Catholic High School, purely based on the fact of the wonderful academic success they experience along with their spiritual connection with Christ.

I felt ask though we, the students, couldn't express our rights here, I felt retricted to only certain classes and didn't have any variety, and not getting the opportunity to choose classes I was paying for.
