Let us love one another
for love is from God.
Everyone has the right to learn,
everyone has the right
to be respected,
and everyone has the right
to feel safe.
At St. Ann School, we are committed to instill in each child both a love of the Catholic faith and a love of learning. Daily religious instruction, frequent prayer and participation in the planning for Eucharist liturgies all contribute to the faith-filled atmosphere. Because our faith must be shared to be authentic, students have frequent opportunities to put into practice the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. With sensitivity to the uniqueness of the individual, we encourage each child to fulfill his or her
potential in all areas of learning. The student is able to see his or her life as a tapestry in which the strands of learning, faith, and service are not separated, but integrated to produce a unique and beautiful whole.
Acceptance of a position at St. Ann School requires a commitment to the education of the whole child. Dedication to Jesus Christ, commitment to professional growth, and a strong sense of community are the marks of our staff. We recognize the developmental continuum of the educational process and strive to build on already acquired skills and knowledge while preparing for future learning. Students can see in our methods of teaching and our handling of discipline both the gentleness and the strength of Jesus.
Because parents are the primary educators of their children, the school is committed to working with parents to encourage the development of each child. It is our hope that children view the school as an extension of the faith life they experience at home, where their parents are the first models of Gospel living. We support and assist parents by offering educational information and presentations and by fostering regular and open communication between home and school. Parents assist as volunteers, making use of their abilities to contribute to the educational process.
