Toronto Catholic District School Board

School History And Tradition

 

St. Agnes Catholic School is a small school located in the middle of a residential area in North York. The building, completed in 1971, houses nine classrooms on two floors, with a number of staircases and different levels, given the sloping nature of the land. The surrounding property is large and affords the students many opportunities for play and physical education. It backs onto Brebeuf College School, located on Steeles Avenue.


For many years an open area school, St. Agnes was redesigned in 1989 to accommodate closed classrooms. The neighbourhood is comprised of mostly large, detached dwellings with very little business or retail in the area.

Located near the boundary of Metropolitan Toronto and York Region, we enrol a number of student from outside our area because of our excellent academic reputation.


St. Agnes Catholic School celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1995.


The patron saint of our school is St. Agnes, who lived in Rome in the 3rd century during the time when early Christians were being persecuted. Agnes was only 12 years old when she was martyred for her faith, courage and purity. The name Agnes means lamb and she is often pictured with a lamb as a symbol of her innocence. Her feast day is January 21st.
