  • About the Class Challenge

    The Class Challenge is a friendly competition between classes for the highest participation and amount given to St. Agnes. All gifts alumnae give from July 1-June 30, counts toward the Class Challenge. The big push for the Class Challenge runs for five months, but you are welcome to give to the Academy Fund at any time.

    COMPETITION BY CLASS YEARS! 
    The Class Challenge is now broken into three class year categories: 
    Fannin Street Challenge (1963 – 1940 and older: those that attended the Fannin Street campus)
    Bellaire Challenge (1964- 2010: those that attended the Bellaire campus)
    Five-Out Challenge (2011-2016: those that are currently in their college to fledgling career years)
    WHY? 
    The average size of a St. Agnes alumnae class is 119. If you break that down into eras, the average class size is much different:
    Fannin Street (1963 – 1940) average class size: 55
    Bellaire (1964- 2011) average class size: 140
    Five-Out (2011-2017) average class size: 208
    Because the Class Challenge rankings are by percentage, it makes sense to break it into eras, so it is a fair and balanced competition.
