Saint Agnes Boys High School was a small, all-boys, private Catholic high school on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City. It was run by the Marist Brothers in conjunction with the Archdiocese of New York. The mascot of St. Agnes was the stag.

History[edit]

St. Agnes was located on West End Avenue at West 87th Street. Students from all five boroughs of New York City were enrolled at St. Agnes.

The original high school building was located on East 44th Street between Lexington and Third Avenue, directly behind St. Agnes Church on 43rd Street. St. Agnes later relocated its school to the Upper West Side. The West 87th Street school closed in June 2013. The plight of the private Catholic school closures in the New York City area was covered in the New York Times, the New York Daily News, and CBS News.[2][3][4] As of 2014, the closed school remains gated.

Academics[edit]

The Advanced Placement Program allowed high school students to earn college credits. St. Agnes offered Advanced Placement courses in American History, English, Studio Art, and Spanish. It also offered elective courses in a variety of disciplines to students in their junior and senior years.
