Mission Statement of Saint Agnes School

As compassionate and faithful Christians, we continue to pursue our spiritual journey, achieve our highest academic potential, and be stewards of the Catholic faith to others.
FROM THE PRINCIPAL
There has been significant developments this week regarding the Scholarship Tax Credit legislation in Kentucky. It appears the Kentucky House of Representatives will be releasing their budget ahead of schedule. These scholarship tax credits could play a significant role for some of our school families and for Catholic schools, in general.
You can do your part by emailing your State Representative today by clicking here or calling (800) 372-7181. Tell your State Representative that Scholarship Tax Credits must be included in the Budget so that more Kentucky families can choose the school that best fits their children’s needs. Those not familiar with the issue can go to www.edchoiceky.com and/or see the attached document to learn more. ~ Mr. Hoyt
