St. Anne offers a comprehensive community service program for all Middle School students called Gospels in Action Program (GAP), which is tailored specifically to the interests of the students. Through the program, students will work towards becoming responsible citizens and gain both awareness and sensitivity towards the varying needs of a diverse community. GAP provides students the opportunity to take learning from the classroom and acquire additional perspectives through service. Students are required to complete 16 hours of community service each academic year and reflect on their experiences through prompts. Prior to graduation from St. Anne, all Grade 8 students create a culminating “Grad at Grad” project, a final reflection and capstone of students’ individual growth throughout their years at St. Anne in relation to the school’s four Student Learning Expectations.

  • Gain a greater and deeper understanding of their community and themselves as contributing, caring human beings.
