What Parents Have to Say About St. Agnes
Jim Romeo, Class of 1989, and his son Henry, Class of 2019
Jim said, “As a 1989 graduate of St. Agnes School, I have many fond memories of my elementary and middle school years including teachers, sacraments, the basketball team, field days and field trips to list a few. But the relationships built and the nurturing atmosphere stands out most. St. Agnes always did and still does feel like home. This is why when starting my own family, it was an easy decision for my wife Angela and I when it came to where our children would be going to school. Henry is currently in 7th grade and will be the last of my kids to graduate from St. Agnes School. He sincerely loves his school and has truly benefited from all the amazing teachers/staff and great friends he has made over the years. He is without a doubt…A Bear For Life! My other two children, Emma (class of 2014) and Charlie (class of 2016) went on to high school at Mt. de Sales and Mt. St. Joe and were very well prepared thanks to the academic expectations and guidance received at St. Agnes.”
“St. Agnes School will always be a home away from home for us and we look forward to continuing our involvement in the future and cherish all the great memories we have of this amazing school. GO BEARS”
Applications for the 2021-2022 school year are due May 1, 2021.
