Our Mission

The mission of St. Agnes Academy is to provide for our students strong Catholic values and academic excellence, while encouraging them to be lifelong learners.

JOY (Jesus first, Others second, Yourself last) is our call to action!

Since 1973, our archdiocesan parochial school has been providing students in the Key Biscayne and Miami community a strong Catholic education as well as an academically challenging curriculum that encourages critical thinking, collaboration, and problem solving. Our Catholic identity enables us to educate the whole child spiritually, academically, and morally.

The foundation of our school is based on five pillars:

Safe and Healthy Environment

St. Agnes Academy provides students with a safe and healthy learning environment in which to grow academically, spiritually, physically, and emotionally.

How do we safeguard our students and surroundings?

  • A closed campus with a state-ofthe-art security system, highly trained faculty and staff, a security guard and Key Biscayne Police Department resource officer on campus, and police support during student drop-off and pickup times.
  • A comprehensive socioemotional counseling program which includes classroom guidance, individual counseling, conflict resolution, an Empower Me Program, and a zero tolerance to bullying policy.
  • Facilities for physical activity and sports including basketball courts, a fully-equipped playground, a large sports field and a soon to be built state of the art gymnasium/ multipurpose room.
  • A recycling program which encourages the school community to "Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle” and a “Walk to School Wednesdays" initiative to foster environmentally conscious students.
  • Education in cyber literacy for students and strict guidelines and policies regarding the safe and responsible use of information and communication technology.
