Many parents are rightly concerned about what their children are learning in schools today.
At St. Ann Classical Academy, we teach children to think critically and search for what is true, beautiful, and good.
When your child thinks critically, your child will be ready to take on the world.
Our classical education plan, formed from the deep intellectual heritage of western civilization, gives children an unparalleled advantage in life.

St. Ann Classical Academy is a classical Catholic elementary school founded in Raritan, New Jersey.
Co-educational from pre-kindergarten through grade eight, SACA is under the general supervision of the Office of Schools of the Diocese of Metuchen. Locally, it is under the direction of the Pastor of Saint Ann Parish and the Raritan Oratory of Saint Philip Neri.
Catholic classical liberal arts curriculum operates on the premise that our good and loving God has created all that is for a purpose and with a plan.
Moreover, God has given humanity special gifts that enable us to learn and grow, to apply ourselves in seeking what is true, good, and beautiful.
The gifts of intellect and free will, which God gave to the human person, who is the pinnacle of God`s creative work, enable humans to order their thinking with reason and to exercise virtue in their choosing.
The Catholic classical liberal method of education seeks to present learning as an adventure that encourages the student`s sense of wonder at how God`s order and plan can somehow be discovered in all academic subjects.
Learning at SACA involves more than just absorbing facts and information for the sake of a test.
We provide high-quality education and encourage the development of students` gifts and potential.
Our aim is for our students to learn how to think and reason well.
These skills carry students through future academics and life. Students at SACA become smart and wise, to come to understand that both reason and faith are necessary; they are not opposed to each other.
Our desire is to awaken wonder and awe as our students learn about order, patterns, and natural laws found within math and the sciences.
Students' hearts and minds are opened to the beauty and truth found in great literature and in the lives and events of historical heroes and saints.
A strong language arts foundation enables students to express themselves clearly and effectively.
Join us in a vibrant and distinct classical Catholic education at Saint Ann Classical Academy in Raritan, where children develop personal and academic confidence, know they are uniquely loved, and learn to respect the dignity of the human person, themselves, and that of others.
