Dear Families,

Welcome to St. Agnes School! As Lake Placid‘s only primary school we meet the needs of developing young students whose parents want their children’s first academic and social experiences to be great ones. The grade band of preschool through third grade is a pedagogical approach designed to ensure that all students are able to develop their cognitive, social, emotional, cultural and physical skills to the best of their abilities, preparing them for success in any future school environment. At St. Agnes students are encouraged to develop as individuals and move their own pace, where they are provided support to accelerate their learning.

We will:

  • Provide a safe, caring, family like environment with an emphasis on developing strong social emotional skills;

  • Awaken a lifelong love of learning through a blend of traditional and progressive educational approaches;

  • Encourage creativity and confidence and course subjects supported by extensive opportunities in art, foreign language, music, and technology;

  • Build a strong foundation in literacy, where many students leave third grade well ahead of grade level expectations.

We welcome children of all faiths and look forward to your family joining our vibrant learning community. Please contact me with any questions or if you would like to receive an enrollment folder. I also invite you to look through our welcome book and curriculum guide.
