Mission & Philosophy

Mission Statement

The mission of St. Anne Catholic School is to develop each student academically, spiritually, culturally, physically, and interpersonally in a Catholic environment.

Philosophy Statement

St. Anne Catholic School, as a ministry of St. Anne Catholic Community, is committed to offering our students academic excellence in a nurturing environment. St. Anne embraces the uniqueness of each child and celebrates the diversity of the student body. We consider the family as a partner in the endeavor to provide an opportunity for the optimal growth of each child. We provide a Catholic atmosphere in which students have the opportunity to grow into responsible members of the Body of Christ. Our philosophy is built upon the Basilian Fathers’ cornerstone: “Teach me Goodness, Discipline, and Knowledge”.
