Non-Catholic students are welcome at Saint Agnes School with the understanding that they accept the Catholic philosophy of the School, participate in religion classes, and attend the School’s religious activities.

Students transferring from another Catholic, public, or private school will be accepted on the basis of space availability, their academic record, and the recommendations they provide from their previous schools.  In making admissions decisions, the School may also consider a number of other factors including whether the applicant is a sibling of a child currently or previously enrolled in the School, and whether the applicant is a member of Saint Agnes, Saint Camillus or Saint Eulalia Parish.  Please note, the School does not typically accept new students for admission into the Eighth Grade unless the applicant has recently moved to the area and he or she is transferring from another Catholic school.

Screening Process for Pre-Kindergarten (K1), Kindergarten (K2), and First Grade

The School requires a screening for admission into the Pre-Kindergarten (K1), Kindergarten (K2), and First Grade.  Parents of prospective students must submit a registration form and schedule an appointment for a screening at the School.  Each screening will take between 10 and 15 minutes and parents may stay with their children throughout the process.
