Thank you for your interest in St. Agnes Academy! The ninth grade is a great time to enter as our students begin their high school experience together. Typically they join us from more than 50 different middle schools. Everyone is new at the same time - making friends, discovering activities, and getting to know teachers, counselors, and courses.
Admission decisions at St. Agnes are based on the entire application. In order to select students for whom our rigorous academic program is a good fit, we consider work habits, attendance and discipline records, grades, test scores, teacher recommendations, and the student's essay. In recent years, a consistent pattern of above-average grades and test scores is typical of our entering classes.
The St. Agnes Academy Board of Directors has set tuition for the 2012-2013 school year at $14,550. Financial aid is available to qualified families for whom tuition is a burden. Please visit the Financial Aid section of our web site for more information.
A campus visit is recommended for all prospective students. Opportunities include the feeder school campus visits in the fall for students and our Open House on Thursday, November 8, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. for students and their families. We also encourage applicants to attend St. Agnes events such as plays, concerts and games for a first-hand experience of our extra-curricular programs. Please join us so that you can meet our students and faculty and see St. Agnes in action!
Application materials will be available for downloading here, and instructions for registering for our entrance exam are available here. The application deadline for the 2013-2014 school year is January 15, 2013. Admission decision letters will be mailed to all applicants on March 8, 2013. Thank you for considering St. Agnes, and we look forward to receiving your application!
