We are out of town, do we still need to take a tour?

It is important that prospective families see our campus in action and make sure it is a good fit for their child and family. Out of town applicants can submit their application but will need to take a tour before coming for an interview.

How will I know if my application is complete?

The Admissions Office will send an email to the applicant when the application file is complete. If you are not sure, simply call Admissions or email admissions@stannecs.org.

Are siblings and parishioners given priority in the admissions process?

St. Anne is a parish school, therefore we prioritize our parishioner applicants, as well as our currently enrolled families with siblings, who meet our academic and behavioral requirements.

My child has never been to a daycare or nursery school. Will this affect their application and what do I do about the recommendation forms?

Children who are applying to the Early Childhood program only need recommendation forms if they have attended a daycare or nursery school program. Their attendance at one of these programs is not required for our admissions decision.

Do you have before and after school care?

As a courtesy to our families, the school is open at 7:00 a.m. to begin accepting students for the school day. The children are supervised by a staff member. The school offers an After School Program until 6:00 p.m.

Where do St. Anne Catholic School students typically go after graduation?

St. Anne graduates choose to go to various schools. This year’s graduating class continued on to the Catholic High Schools of St. Thomas, Strake Jesuit, St. Pius X, St. Agnes, Incarnate Word and Duchesne. Some students chose to go to public or magnet schools, such as the High School for Performing and Visual Arts, Carnegie, and Lamar’s International Baccalaureate Program.

If you were not accepted and wish to apply again, you must furnish new academic transcripts, test scores and teacher recommendations.
