We believe in the value of a St. Agnes Academy-St. Dominic School education and are committed to supporting families to make it accessible. In keeping with our mission as the Dominican Community of Schools, we believe an exceptional education should be accessible to all who qualify.

Through our innovative Variable Tuition model, we offer a tuition rate to match a variety of financial situations. Our tuition is not one-size-fits-all, and no family pays 100% of the cost to educate a child. Your Variable Tuition is determined each year, utilizing a third-party provider to help us evaluate your family’s ability to pay.

Our Variable Tuition model can place a St. Agnes-St. Dominic education within your reach! At the Dominican Community of  Schools, we are committed to creating a diverse socio-economic education community where everyone feels they belong.
