A Tradition of Excellence
St. Agnes Academy, an all-girl private high school in Texas, has earned more than 80 State titles in athletics and annually competes against some of the best private and public schools in the state. We offer 12 different sports during three seasons and have more than 400 students involved in at least one of our 30 teams.
We encourage participation in athletics because it offers our students the opportunity to learn important life-lessons such as teamwork, self-discipline, courage, and determination. Participating in high school athletics provides our student-athletes with the chance to develop characteristics that will help them to become more active, higher-achieving, productive members of society. Since we offer a wide variety of programs, our students can find a place where they can apply their personal skills and talents while contributing to our institution’s rich tradition of success.
The Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS), our governing body, promotes a district schedule with a play-off format similar in nature to UIL public school institutions. State Championships are recognized in Basketball, Cross Country, Golf, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, and Track and Field. Water Polo, Lacrosse, and Field Hockey are run by independent organizations that endorse state competitions for the varsity teams.
Students who are selected to an athletic team will be required to pay a $100 athletic fee per sport each year. Students participating in a third sport, will be exempt from paying a third time.
The St. Agnes Academy Athletic Department is committed to the total development of our student-athletes. We foster the cultivation of skills that prepare student-athletes for the ultimate competitive challenge: life. Based on the founding principles of the school, St. Agnes Academy implements programs and activities designed to develop intellectual curiosity, to work for social justice, and to act with integrity and compassion.
All sports conduct mandatory practices and/or competitions up to six days a week during their season. This generally constitutes three practices and two competitions per week with some sports also having tournaments and meets scheduled on Saturdays. Practices are held before or after school, and most are one and one half to two hours in length. Athletes are expected to attend off-season work-outs before and after the regular season as scheduled by the head coaches and athletic director.
