SETTING UP OUR STUDENTS FOR SUCCESS
Parent at St. Ann School
"St. Ann has allowed my husband and I the opportunity to gift our children an amazing Catholic School education. The faculty and staff of St. Ann empower my children to be individuals and live according to our Catholic faith and go above and beyond for the students even after they graduate. They become mentors for them; continuously reminding them that you are forever a part of St. Ann. Parents are supported through numerous programs to ensure they continue to have the opportunity to provide a Catholic based education for their children. St. Ann embodies what catholic education should be."
