About Us  - St. Agatha School is a Christian Catholic Community that excels in education. Our school opened in 1941 and was located on Fr. Carney Drive in Milton. The school was then relocated to its current spot in 1951.  St. Agatha School is New England Association of Schools & Colleges (NEASC) accredited. Our students receive a strong, moral, spiritual, academic, and social foundation that challenges each and every one of them to be the best they can be.

Mission Statement - The purpose of the St. Agatha School mission statement is to clearly articulate the foundational principles, upon which our every objective, policy and action as teachers of The People of God rests. As we “set out into the deep” in this new millennium, the policies stated in this Parent/Student Handbook are meant to assist us on “a voyage of discovery,” a voyage that will lead each of us to share in the fulfillment of our shared mission, as stated below:

St. Agatha School is a Christian Catholic community providing excellence in education.

Together, our members strive to maintain a safe, positive learning environment.

Through worship and service, we see Jesus in every member of our community.

We do our best to help everyone in our school feel capable, connected and contributing.

Because we are two or more gathered in His Name, we believe that Christ is in our midst at St. Agatha School.

In His Love, do all that we can to excel in education and to celebrate Christian values.

To fulfill this mission, we promise to do what Jesus would do each day, in every way.

And so, create a school climate filled with the Gospel spirit.

School Philosophy - The mission of St. Agatha School is to “Teach as Jesus Did”(Pastoral Message of the Bishops of U.S. Catholic Conference, 1972). We believe that Christ is the model on whom Christian life is shaped. We strive to generate a community climate that is permeated by the Gospel spirit of freedom and love.
Catholic Christian principles are integrated in the teaching of all academic subjects. Faith formation, social awareness, and responsible decision-making are essential elements in the education of each child. Enrichment programs and service projects broaden the student’s perspectives and prepare them for their contribution to society in the future.
