St. Agnes Academy-St. Dominic School is a Catholic Independent private school in Memphis, TN. We invite you to spend some time on our website. Discover how we are meeting the needs of our students. Listen to parents share what they love about SAA-SDS. Explore our strong single-gender academic programs and our vast arts, athletics, and extra-curricular opportunities. And be sure to take a look at how our Catholic faith and the Four Pillars of Dominican tradition (Study, Prayer, Community, and Service) are at the core of everything we do.
The Dominican Community of Schools is more than a campus where you’ll find two challenging schools. It is a single community of faith and respect; of principle and purpose.
"There is no place like SAA. Every girl that attends can find some place that feels like home. Whether it is the theatre, the softball field, the math lab, or the science lab, there is a comfort in this place. I believe that it is more than acceptance. There is always an invitation to belong, to be involved. You will find it all over this campus."
"My favorite thing about SAA is the environment of support that is constantly present. No matter how my day is going, there is always someone that is next to me—a teacher, a friend, or a coach—who supports my endeavors, encourages me through the difficult times, and challenges me to work hard even if I fail."
"St. Dominic was, in my opinion, the best possible preparation for high school and college that I could have received in Memphis. Not only did my teachers lay an excellent foundation for understanding higher-level math, science, and humanities, but they also taught me discipline in applying myself for totally new subjects that I came across later in high school and college."
"We have come a long way as a class and have created a brotherhood like no other. We’ve shared many memories that have helped sculpt our class into who we are today: unique brothers who aspire to live by the four pillars in our daily life, while having a little fun."
"St. Agnes – St. Dominic is a place where the sense of community is strong. When we walked through the doors of the Early Childhood Center to tour, it immediately felt like home for our family."
"The four pillars – Study, Prayer, Community and Service - are at the core of everything we do, both in and out of the classroom. They remind us that our focus is not just on academics, but also on the development and well being of the girls we teach."
"My experience attending Junior High at St. Agnes Academy gave me confidence, socially and academically, as I moved onto high school. I value my time spent there, interacting with students from St. Dominic School and forming lifelong friendships, as we established a strong foundation for our future."
"St. Agnes Academy prepared me for college due to the high quality of work expected, coupled with the high quality instruction given on how to produce such work. Teachers across departments expect and believe that all students should and are capable of achieving, and therefore, they are constantly ready to provide the help necessary to gain a holistic understanding of the material."
There is no better place to learn and grow as a young man. When I completed my years at St. Dominic, I felt confident and ready for high school.
