About St. Agnes School
The curriculum at Saint Agnes Catholic School focuses on educating the whole child by developing Catholic values along with the knowledge and skills necessary for spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, and physical development. Along with a focus on academics, students also receive a strong foundation in the Catholic faith and commitment to serving others.
Saint Agnes uses a Balanced Literacy approach to teaching throughout the Primary, Intermediate and Upper Schools.
In the Primary School, this means a comprehensive program of language arts acquisition that includes reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing. This approach includes teaching phonics, grammar skills, reading and comprehension strategies, and writing forms and skills.
In the Intermediate School, students will develop the creative use of imagination through inquiry based learning. Students will model and develop study skills that will foster independence and advocacy in our Upper School and will have an emphasis on Service
In the Upper School, the Balanced Literacy approach addresses a specific topic from complimentary perspectives. For example, students study ancient Greece by learning about customs and traditions in social studies, reading “The Iliad” in literature, and creating a Greek artifact in art.
Teachers incorporate differentiated learning, small group activities, individualized assessments and instruction, group projects, and many other unique approaches to meet students’ academic needs. The “one size fits all” approach is a thing of the past. The Upper School incorporates a weekly session dedicated to learning study skills; students learn how to prioritize assignments, establish schedules for long-term projects, and manage their schoolwork in addition to extracurricular activities.
Saint Agnes Catholic School hosts several open houses throughout the year. These events are a great way to meet the principal and pastor, talk with parents and teachers, and tour the school with current students.
Families are always welcome to take a tour of the school. Please contact the school office at 703-527-5423, X100 to schedule your tour.
