Celebrating the Class of '23

Congratulations to the St. Agnes Academy Class of 2023! We are proud of you and inspired by you! This amazing group of 63 Stars has earned over $9.6 Million in scholarships for achievements in academics, arts, leadership and athletics, and they have been offered admission to 66 colleges and universities. Next fall they will enroll in 26 colleges in 17 states from coast to coast. Colleges they will be attending include Georgetown, Notre Dame, Northwestern, William & Mary, Loyola Marymount, and Tulane.
“The Class of 2023 is remarkable! They embody the true meaning of sisterhood by uplifting one another and praising the accomplishments of their sisters,” said SAA Upper School Dean Heather Valdez. “These young ladies value and support each sister's unique gifts and together, as a class, they have achieved the highest academic and artistic accolades. They are filled with awareness, maturity, and love, and I am excited to see the positive impact they will leave in their communities in the future.”
