ST. ANN TRADITION
St. Ann Catholic School has served the Normandy area since 1856 from the same location on Natural Bridge Road. Back then, Natural Bridge was notable for having a natural bridge! From the beginning, the school served all the children in the area, Catholic or not. Some St Ann students are 3rd generation!
While a St. Ann Catholic School education is innovative and embraces technology and research, it is deeply rooted in tradition. St. Ann has many local traditions and comes with all the benefits long expected of a Catholic school. Class sizes are small, and students continue together from Kindergarten to 8th grade. Students will often know their upper-grade teachers for years before being in the classroom together. Discipline is firm but loving. Teachers are trusted to be teachers and not simply asked to read from a script. Students learn cursive and computer programming. Prayer is a part of daily life in the school. Most classes have their special traditions, like 6th-grade camp, 8th-grade trip, and the 3rd-grade Saints Museum. The gym is decorated with banners of CYC championship teams dating back a generation. There is even a school song!
