Welcome | St. Agnes Academy-St. Dominic School


We know that finding just the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We are delighted to help you as you begin learning more about our school.

At the Dominican Community of Schools, our students have the opportunity to develop passions, build on strengths, explore interests, and develop lifelong relationships in an environment that embraces each individual child. St. Agnes Academy, designed just for girls and St. Dominic School, created just for boys, are part of a nurturing learning and faith community where every student belongs. Our faculty and administrators partner with parents to celebrate, challenge, encourage, and guide children so they are academically, emotionally, and socially prepared for the world of college and beyond.

A world of opportunity is awaiting your child, and we look forward to sharing each step along the way with you! We would love to meet you and schedule a personal tour. Please call our office to set up a time to visit with us or click here to schedule a tour.
