Message from the President


We are excited you are visiting our website.  At St. Agnes Academy-St. Dominic School we have been educating young girls and boys for more than 165 years.

I hope you will enjoy reading about our rich history, mission, philosophy, and guiding principles.  Our school has been greatly blessed by the vision of the Dominican Sisters of St. Catharine, Kentucky, who prepared the way for us many years ago.  Across this site, you will find information on our coeducational preschool, single gender lower grades, coeducational junior high, and girls’ upper school.  Regardless of the age of your student, you will find a caring and dedicated group of adults ready to help your child grow in knowledge and truth.  We are a faith-filled Catholic family.  We welcome all faiths and view all children as God’s gifts.

At St. Agnes Academy and St. Dominic School you will find a world-class educational program.  Upon graduation, our St. Agnes Stars are prepared for acceptance to, and success at, some of the finest colleges and universities around the world.  Our graduates earn merit-based scholarships allowing them the opportunity to select the school that is the best fit for them.  Our St. Dominic Suns leave our school after 8th grade well equipped for the challenges of their high school years.  Our graduates share stories of how prepared they were for the transition to the next level, and they tell us that they are often sought-out to assist their new classmates.

But, education at St. Agnes and St. Dominic is more than subject matter mastery.  Our students have an incredible array of opportunities across athletic, performing arts, and extra-curricular programs. Regardless of age, our diverse and well-rounded program will help your child explore his or her passions and master his or her dreams.

Founded on the Four Pillars of the Dominican charism:  Study, Prayer, Community and Service, and undergirded by a commitment to truth, we focus on all aspects of a student's  development. Our caring and talented faculty equip our students with courage and self-assurance while developing qualities of leadership and service, empowering them to make the world a better place in their lifetime.

I hope you will visit us and experience what makes St. Agnes Academy-St. Dominic School a Christ-filled school. We would love to have your family become part of our family.
