Our Vision

St. Anne's welcomes and respects all forms of diversity, including age, race, ethnicity, gender, religion, ability, sexual orientation and socio-economic status. Children, families, and faculty from diverse cultures, beliefs, and lifestyles clearly enrich the lives of one another on our campus, and St. Anne's continues to value and appreciate these contributions, talents, and varied perspectives.  Without these, our educational program, our community and our children's experiences would be incomplete.

Our Legacy

Our Founding Sisters cared for the needs of children suffering from polio and tuberculosis in the early days of St. Anne’s.  Every child was welcomed inclusive of race, gender, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, family structure, religion, ability, and other identities.  

When the convalescent home for children became a school, the Sisters turned their attention to meeting the needs of children who were not being well served by the public school system.  Mother Irene embraced this opportunity for differentiated instruction saying, “You just need to teach them the way they learn.”  Our school sits on a foundation of inclusion.  We continue to work to ensure St. Anne’s is a place where every child can reach their full potential and know their  school is a place where they belong.
