Mission, Vision, and Core Values
St. Anne School is a private, Roman Catholic school recognized by and within the Diocese of Orange, that delivers authentic religious formation in accordance with the Magisterium of the Church, unparalleled academics and broadening extracurricular opportunities designed to challenge, educate, and nurture the whole child in an atmosphere of support and close personal attention, in partnership with parents.
To develop future generations of creative thinkers, innovative problem solvers, effective communicators and emerging leaders, guided by the Catholic faith, to influence our local and global communities for the greater good.
Faith: St. Anne promotes and fosters our Catholic identity through religious instruction, faith formation, and spiritual development, in an environment enriched by students from other faith backgrounds. We are proud of our Catholic faith and use it as the platform to teach about God, the sacraments, the dignity of the human person, the Commandments, prayer, and Christian service.
Character: We value moral integrity as the cornerstone of strong character. We will treat each other as Jesus taught: with respect, honesty and compassion. We seek to nurture a strong work ethic in each student and to instill the importance of service to others as a means of making the world a better place.
Community: The St. Anne sense of community is what sets us apart from all other schools and is extraordinary due to our superior faculty, dedicated staff and involved parents working as a team to help each student realize their full potential. We strive for economic, social, and spiritual diversity within our community and believe that these serve to teach children charity, understanding and the richness that comes from our differences as children made in the image and likeness of God.
Excellence: The pursuit of excellence is central to everything that we do. We set high standards for our students and provide them with superior teachers, facilities and state-of-the-art technology necessary to meet them. We operate with the fiscal discipline and control that enable us to continually improve and ensure the future of our school.
Balance: Balance and breadth of exposure to a wide range of disciplines help to develop well-rounded, resourceful and curious individuals. We offer exposure to a range of religious, academic, artistic, athletic, and co-curricular activities designed to broaden our students and instill in them a life-long love of learning.
