Vision Statement

The quality of education at Saint Ann School will be at a level that inspires all families to send their children to our school. This will be accomplished by collaboration between our parents and teachers, high behavioral standards for our students, and maintaining a strong focus on our Catholic identity. We will stand out in our community as the preferred educational provider by our effective and well researched educational strategies and resources. We will strive for a well-rounded education that will include extracurricular activities and a fine arts program, focusing on the spiritual, academic, moral, emotional, and physical growth of our students. This will afford the necessary balance to provide our students with the opportunity to become future leaders in society, molded in the teachings of Christ.
