Principal's Message

Dear Prospective Family,

Thank you for your interest in Saint Anne Parish School … a two time award winning school for Academic Excellence determined by the US Department of Education!  Saint Anne was named a 2016 and 2006 National Blue Ribbon School because of our academically superior performance.  Only 50 non-public schools are selected every year, and it is indeed an honor and privilege to earn this award multiple times!

Our mission is to grow servant leaders from the inside out while maximizing the potential in every child.  Our students learn to have a growth mindset by setting goals, tracking their progress, and celebrating their achievements both inside and outside the classroom.  At Saint Anne Parish School, we celebrate the vital role that we play in preparing our children and young people to become successful scholars, responsible citizens, and faith-filled Catholics who will have a lifelong relationship with God.

We are very proud of our programs and the opportunities we offer to our children and their families as they begin their educational journey in this loving, Catholic community.  We pride ourselves on offering comprehensive offerings in school and after school for children ranging from preschool through eighth grade!   Our teachers are degreed, state certified educators with many years of classroom experience. They model the importance of lifelong learning by their commitment to continue their education in an effort to remain current in best practices.

To our great pride, our students have received many accolades at our school and continue that tradition at their high schools and beyond. Many of our Saint Anne Parish School graduates are named and recognized as Illinois State Scholars which rank in the top ten percent of high school seniors. Traditionally, their selection is based on standardized test scores, as well as grade point averages and rigorous students' schedules. Many of our graduates perform at the honor roll status at their high schools, participate in a variety of athletic, fine art and philanthropic experiences as well.  While we celebrate these accomplishments, our commitment extends well beyond those subject matters and experiences for our Cardinals.  Many of our graduates choice professional careers in which they use their God-given gifts which they cultivated at our parish school to make the world a better place.  For that, and so much more, we are very proud!

Please take some time to visit our very user-friendly, informative website. The pictures will give you a glimpse of our warm and welcoming environment. In addition, please look to the teachers’ biographies to get more information regarding the faculty’s individual qualifications.

There are so many questions to ask when choosing a school for your children. Come and join us at Saint Anne and hear how our warm, inviting, caring, Catholic community can welcome your family into ours!

Please consider being a part of our Family in Faith,

Mrs. Dawn Kapka
