Servant Leadership

Servant Leader Apprenticeship

Junior Theology classes discuss Morality and Catholic Social Teaching in the context of the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. In conjunction with this preparation and the Dominican Tradition, St. Agnes Juniors answer the call to follow Christ's example and be servant leaders. Beginning second semester Junior year, Academy Women complete 100 hours of community service with 1 organization, by the fall of their Senior year. Students work directly with a person or group of persons in need, and address a social justice issue as St. Agnes prepares young women to preach with their lives. Through this experience, the girls discover the principals of Catholic Social Teaching firsthand.
Instead of just absorbing and knowing all of this information internally, we want our students to take action. And really that’s how we preach at St. Agnes—take what you’re learning and put it into action.
