I have the greatest memories growing up at St. Anne! I was a student from preschool to 8th grade, and my mom worked at the school for most of that time, so it really became my home away from home. I know I received the best education, but beyond that, I was taught by some amazing teachers, some of whom are still teaching there today!
 
It was an easy choice to select St. Anne for my own children, and every day when I drop them off, I find myself saying, “I love it here.” Had you told my younger self I would come full circle and be a St. Anne parent one day, I may not have believed it - but truly, once you join, you are always part of the St. Anne family.
