St. Agnes Academy - St. Dominic School provides an education-based athletics program that accompanies our student-athletes from early skill development to high level competition. Our core values of Commitment, Sacrifice, Work Ethic, Respect, and Pride, are woven throughout our program at every level. These core values are the basis for student-athletes to form strong relationships, build life-long skills and habits, and thrive within a team structure.
We view our athletic programs as an extension of the school day. Our coaches are educators in their respective sport. For some student-athletes, they may consider their sport one of their most important “classes” of the day. We believe student-athletes will become better persons through their participation in our programs. Student-athletes will experience “bumps in the road” along the way. Mistakes and adversity are part of the growth process. We will plan, prepare, and play to win games, but we will define the success of our programs beyond the scoreboard.
