St. Ann Academy

St. Ann Academy offers much more than just a strong academic program; we teach the entire student-mind, heart and spirit.
We support your family-taught values of right and wrong and help in establishing the highest moral values.
Our school environment is that of a caring community with the student at the center of all that we do."St. Ann`s is like family" - this is a phrase we hear over and over from alumni and newcomers alike, and it`s the characteristic that makes us most proud.
Families with children of all ages, races and creeds gather together often for school events such as the Ice Cream Social, the Harvest Festival and Family Pasta Night, to name just a few.
More importantly, the St. Ann community is quick to rally for those in need, evidenced continually in so many ways.
