Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"With a Christian education, the emphasis is not only on striving to foster in the human person the maturity needed in human society, but more importantly, to instill in the person, the Gospel message of hope and salvation fully proclaimed in the person of Jesus Christ. This aim is accomplished by gradually introducing the baptized person to the knowledge of the mystery of salvation so that he may grow more conscious of the gift of faith that he has received. This knowledge makes a human person aware of his role in society as a mature adult and more conscious of his responsibility to become a living witness to all he has learned.
We, at St. Anne School, are committed to providing an atmosphere that is spiritually enriching, intellectually stimulating, emotionally and socially supportive, and physically sound. To the best of our ability we strive to provide a safe, orderly environment that protects the health and welfare of our students. We believe in the statement of the Second Vatican Council that it is only
through a cooperative effort of home and school that the child will benefit. Therefore, we emphasize that education must be the joint responsibility of parents, teachers, administrators and students.
The Christ-filled and academic-oriented environment of St. Anne's often runs counter to that which students meet daily via the media and other channels. With this in mind, we remain firmly committed to empowering our students with the knowledge, concepts, skills, and values necessary to make free and responsible decisions now and in the future, thereby fostering right judgment, lively curiosity, reverence for God, and respect for and delight in all of His creation.
As a school, we know who we are. We teach our children that God and the Things of God are at the center. And, like a person who has a strong sense of identity, we welcome diversity. The differences among us -- religious, racial, and ethnic -- enrich our community."
