Catholic Schools - Putting the Pieces Together
It is true that many private schools look at the success that Catholic schools have had over the past 100 years in the United States and sometimes try to emulate the best practices. Catholic schools are very successful in weaving faith, knowledge, service and values into the core curriculum.
Unique to the Catholic schools is the opportunity to nurture spiritual and moral values within the students. This is constantly reinforced not only in classes of religious instruction but throughout the curriculum and extracurricular activities. Catholic school students enjoy a broad selection of extracurricular activities and sports that help to develop community commitment, social skills and physical fitness. These learning experiences enable students to have a deeper understanding of their faith, promote tolerance, value the environment and see their role in the world as Christians.
Catholic schools are renowned for academic excellence. Students at Saint Ann School consistently score in the top percentage on national standardized tests. In Catholic School, students are encouraged to continue their education.
Students at Saint Ann School participate in community service projects. This exemplifies the importance of living the message of the Gospels by helping others and contributing to the local community, world missions and non-profit agencies across the state and nation.
Parental involvement, support from the Catholic community, our Saint Ann pastor, Fr. Breen, and commitment from dedicated teachers ensure that the pieces remain intact to provide for the continued quality education that so many desire for their children.
