There is nothing more that we would love to do than throw open our doors and welcome you to our community.  We know choosing the right school for your child can be stressful, so we hope this page can be a resource in helping with your decision.

Take a virtual tour and learn more about what we have to offer, including a sneak peek at our new preschool building opening next year!  Below you can stand inside one of our Kindergarten classrooms and see what makes our school so special.  We are also offering an in-person Open House on Sunday, November 15th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Pre-registration is required.  More information and registration can be found below.

Hear From Our Saint Agnes Community

Whether they be students, teachers parents, or alumni, listen to some from our community about their Saint Agnes experience.

Step Into Our Kindergarten Classrooms

Step into our two kindergarten classrooms and get a small taste of our learning environment.  If you would like to see these in-person, contact Margaret Laracy, our Admissions Coordinator, at mlaracy@stagneslouisville.org.

The mission of Saint Agnes School is first to the children of registered and active Catholic parishioners of the parish. Active parish membership is demonstrated by regular attendance at Sunday liturgy, a pattern of participation in parish religious, social, and outreach programs, and through regular tithing. Priority admission is given to children who are baptized Catholic and sacramentally current and whose families have completed their yearly stewardship intention card by the stated annual deadline.

In the event that there are more priority admission applicants than the school is able to accommodate, acceptance will be based on a combination of factors. Criteria for priority admission include:

  • Children whose siblings are already attending Saint Agnes School, applying for a full day
  • Children whose siblings are already attending Saint Agnes School, applying for a half day
  • Children whose families have been registered, active, members of the parish the longest
  • Children whose families fulfill their stewardship intentions through regular attendance at Sunday liturgy, participate in parish religious, social, and outreach programs, and who tithe regularly

While our community is a welcoming one, we sometimes need to follow these additional admissions guidelines. Priority is given to Catholic children of Catholic families who are registered, active members of a parish without a school or regional school. Priority is also given to Catholic families who transfer by moving into the Louisville area and who become active members of Saint Agnes Parish. Next considered are inactive Catholic families with Catholic children who want to become active members of Saint Agnes Parish. Also considered are families of other faith traditions who seek a faith-based education for their children at Saint Agnes School.

Other items to note:

  • Acceptance of students is based on the ability of the school to meet the individual needs of the prospective students while still meeting the needs of current students
  • Priority enrollment is open from Sept. 15 – Jan.15 each year. Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten applications received by January 15 are given priority consideration.
  • Active Catholic families must be registered and active members of a Catholic parish for at least three full months before the first day of school in order to receive the Active Catholic Family tuition rate (see tuition page of school handbook).

The Power of a Single Life

If you think about it, that's what Catholic education is all about. Reaching out to those in need, and in many cases without hope. The video above feature's the story of Ben Fultz, a board member of the Catholic Education Foundation. It is a story about the unmistakable outreach and inclusion that separates Catholic schools from all others. With tuition assistance, the trajectory of Ben's life changed forever.

Members and Non-members at Saint Agnes

Beginning with the 2020/2021 school year, our tuition structure has been simplified to signify Parishioner and Non-Parishioner rates. The requirement of completing a stewardship form has been removed from the process, with the intent that it isn’t the act of filling out the form that is most important, but rather the family honoring their commitment of time, talent, and treasure that should be the focus.

Any family that is not Catholic but is receiving assistance CEF/Archdiocesan tuition assistance will receive the Parishioner rate. The Non-Parishioner rate will apply to families of other Catholic parishes that currently have an operating school and any family that is not Catholic and is not receiving any tuition assistance from CEF/Archdiocese of Louisville.

A parishioner is typically defined as an individual or family that has attended one of the quarterly New Member Meetings and has returned all the necessary paperwork. Given the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are suspending in-person New Member Meetings until we can gather again. Instead, the New Member Form can be accessed online here. Families that join the parish in this way are expected to join a New Member Meeting once they are able to take place.

Active Catholic Family Non-Catholic/Non-Active Family + Technology Fee
One Child $6,500 $9,500 $220
Two Children $9,700 $16,170 $396
Three Children $11,300 $20,615 $462
Four Children $13,100 $23,370 $528


Additionally

Many fees, including those for book rental and library fees are included in the tuition. At the time of summer registration in the June prior to the new school year, fees for FACTS Tuition, PTO, facilities/gym, cafeteria, yearbook, sacramental and other grade-specific expenses will be collected.

Tuition is paid either in total on July 1 prior to the beginning of the new school year or through automatic debit by FACTS Tuition, a third party tuition collection company, or on the first or 15th of each month, for eleven months, July-May of the active school year. You can sign up and manage your FACTS Tuition account here.

Tuition must be paid in full for the active school year by May 1 of that year in order for report cards, transcripts and other records to be made available.

If you have further questions or would like to schedule a tour and/or an appointment with the principal, please call Ms. Beth Ford in the school office at (502) 458-2850.
