Why St. Anne's?

Our exceptional programs, dynamic curriculum, and caring community are the foundations upon which St. Anne's Episcopal School is built. Our Preschool - grade 8 model is uniquely important.

Academic Excellence & Readiness

We prepare our graduates for honors course work in the area’s finest high school and boarding school programs.

  • In the fall of 2016, an average of 55.2% of our 5th-8th grade students scored in the 95th percentile (or higher) on one or more of the subtests of the ERB CTP 4 testing program. These students are therefore eligible to participate in the selection process for a variety of online and on-site programs for talented youth sponsored by major universities.
  • Fall 2014:  56% of our students in grades 5-8 scored in the 95th percentile (or higher) on one or more ERB subtests. Fall of 2013: 55% of grades 6-8 scored in the 95th percentile or higher.
  • Our graduates report that they are very well-prepared for their secondary school experience. Many go on to be placed in advanced high school classes and later to attend a range of selective colleges.

Where our graduates have gone

  • Our Early Childhood and Elementary programs provide children with the critical foundational skills and love of learning that prepare them for future academic success and leadership.

Skilled Faculty & Small Classes

We value small classes and our faculty are passionate about connecting with students.

  • Our average class size is 15. It allows for more individual attention, differentiated instruction, and opportunities for engagement.
  • Our 7:1 student-teacher ratio enables teachers to understand and value each student in Preschool through grade 8.
  • 41% of our teaching faculty hold Master’s degrees.
  • 43% of our faculty have loyally served St. Anne’s for ten years or more.

Challenging Curriculum

Our academic program is geared to engage students in meaningful ways while preparing them for a rigorous high school experience.

  • Our curriculum is designed to meet or exceed state and national standards.
  • Our faculty refines and evolves curriculum modules based on collaborative outcomes and new research.
  • Students in grades 3-8 take the national standardized ERB Comprehensive Testing Program to gauge our curricular effectiveness.

Safe & Nurturing Community

We share meaningful connections in a community grounded by our core values: Respect, Responsibility and Compassion.

  • Parents are encouraged to participate and volunteer.
  • Students learn to collaborate, admire hard work and support each other.
  • Our Safe Schools Committee oversees security measures and examines readiness for unexpected crises.

Spiritual Growth

We focus on the heart and spirit. Through daily devotions, service projects, chapels, and classes, we share our Christian identity and values.

  • Every class makes time for daily devotions to clear their minds and set their intentions for the day.
  • Families of all faiths are welcomed and encouraged to share their beliefs in classroom or chapel settings.
  • Our community service programs enourage students to give back.

Diversity and Civic Participation

We recognize the power of diversity in our school and our world.

  • We recruit bright motivated students and families from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. 

  • We awarded $750,000 in need-based financial aid to 35% of our students in 2014-15.

Arts, Athletics and Activities

Our students are inspired to experiment and challenge themselves through as many educational avenues as they can imagine:
