ST. ANN PARENT ORGANIZATION (SAPO)

What is SAPO?

SAPO is the parent organization at St. Ann. We are an organization of parents, for parents, to benefit the larger St. Ann School community.

How can SAPO help you?

SAPO will sponsor fun social and fellowship events, like the popsicle social and wine and cheese social at the beginning of the year, as well as help to provide opportunities for engagement and improvement within the St. Ann community. These opportunities and events bring parents together with kids to raise money for the school and to engage with the community.

How can you get involved with SAPO?

All parents and guardians of current St. Ann students have membership in the SAPO community. SAPO success though depends on parent involvement to make these awesome events happen.

How can you become more involved with SAPO?

If you want to become more involved, you can participate in the bi-annual general meetings, attend events or support events as a volunteer! We would love to have your help in whatever capacity you are available and being involved in SAPO is a great way to get to know other St. Ann community members.

Today, as we did from our beginning in 1856, St. Ann Catholic School provides affordable quality education to the children of our community, Catholic and non-Catholic alike. From two years old at the St. Ann Early Childhood Center through eighth grade, St. Ann Catholic School prepares students for life, in this world and the next. Our rigorous academic curriculum, highly dedicated teachers, and rich athletic tradition coupled with a diverse and caring community makes St. Ann Catholic School a truly an incredible school.

We invite you to learn more about St. Ann Catholic School by exploring our website and scheduling a time to visit our school. You will learn about our school’s diversity, commitment to the Catholic faith, and dedication to academic excellence. We hope you find the story as compelling as we do, and we invite you to help write the next chapter by allowing us the privilege of working with you to educate your children.  We encourage you to make an appointment to tour our historic buildings during the school day and to experience our wonderful school community. To set up a tour or to ask any questions call us at 314-381-0113.

Our admissions process is designed to help you learn about our school and for us to get to know each prospective student and their family. We welcome applications from qualified students in the spring of each year for enrollment in the fall. As part of our dedication to student success, we consider many factors including academic ability, student behavior and work ethic, and parent involvement when making admission decisions.
