A school mass is celebrated weekly in Saint Ann Church
Saint Ann is a Catholic tradition-based community, but we welcome children of all faiths. Religious education and prayer are fundamental parts of each day. Students participate in a weekly mass and prayer service. Each week a different grade is responsible for planning and leading the services.
Saint Ann is a Blue Ribbon Lighthouse school
There are 132,183 public and private schools in the U.S, and roughly 120 Blue Ribbon Lighthouse schools, making Saint Ann School within the top 2 percent of all schools. Accomplishing all nine criteria and attaining the designation establishes Saint Ann as one of the top schools in the country.
Students volunteer time to clean up the playground
In addition to reading, writing and arithmetic, the lessons of forgiveness, compassion, service and generosity are an essential part of our school. Each grade has a service project they work on throughout the school year. From regular visits with the elderly in the parish, to food and winter coat drives, students learn about the importance and impact of giving their time and talent.
Our lower school grades all have themed classrooms to promote imagination and the love of everyday reading.
Each classroom has its own special theme. You'll find a tree with a reading loft, a Dr Seuss house, a castle, a log cabin and a covered wagon. Teachers assisted with the design of these classrooms to fit in with what their students learn about during their year in that grade and to promote a love of reading and learning about literature and history.
The Sisters of Mercy taught at Saint Ann School until the 1990s
Saint Ann School was established in 1921 and is one of the oldest schools in the Diocese of Nashville. Today there are 4th generation students who walk the same school halls as their parents and grandparents.
