Together we did it!

We met and surpassed our $2.3 million goal!

What a great accomplishment for the entire community of St. Anne's!  Because of you,we can continue to open our red doors to talented students, to empower teachers to become even better educators, and to update our campus for the future.

Our thanks must go to all the volunteers who so generously gave their time and talents to the "Open hearts, Open minds" Capital Campaign, including these members of the Committee:  Chris Berl, Christina Bovelsky, Bill Brownlee, Kimble Byrd, Gudrun Cobb, Shelley Dougherty, Devin Duprey, Dianne Heath, Gretchen Hurtt, Cindy Koski, Ana Ramirez, Hick Rowland, Harvey Zendt, and Louisa Zendt.  And, weespecially thank our Campaign Co-Chairs Kitten Gahagan, Rebecca Hanlon, Paul Lakeman and Caroline Prickett.  Their leadership, generosity of spirit, and collective expertise made this extraordinary moment in our school's history possible.

We called upon our community to invest for the future and more than 160 of you -- alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, and friends responded -- raising more than $2.44 million in gifts, pledges and planned gifts that will serve our community for generations to come!  Thank you!

Open Hearts:


Teacher with Student

At St. Anne’s our vision is to make the world better one child at a time to develop talents and  passions and inspire lives of meaning, purpose, and service to the world. We strive to form compassionate children who create, collaborate, and tackle the toughest challenges, wherever their lives may lead them.

As an Episcopal School, we are active in our pursuit of equity and justice not only within our school community, but beyond our beautiful campus. Our students embrace community service and are grounded by a spiritual and moral foundation. Stewardship and compassion are hallmarks of a St. Anne’s education.


We take pride in our learning environment — where students are known, valued, challenged, and inspired by their teachers.

Open Minds:


Our graduates are sought after by the best high schools — independent, public, and parochial — because they are well prepared and competitively positioned to be scholars and academic leaders at the next level.  They are able to master honors and advanced level coursework, and they are confident in their ability to tackle challenging programs.  


Research suggests that students are more successful in high school and college when offered intervention in their early educational years. Over the past two years, for example, St. Anne’s has adopted the research-based Singapore Math approach to prepare its students for a rapidly changing world. Solving math problems is just one of the benefits. Students, parents, and teachers are energized by this innovative approach which asks students to understand the “why” before the “how.” Our goal is to extend learning and to create true mastery for each child.
