ACADEMICS

St. Anne Catholic School is in the Archdiocese of Portland school district. Therefore, we follow the Archdiocesan standards which are formed by a curriculum committee utilizing federal and state standards as well as the standards in other Dioceses. Below is a list of the curriculum used as the foundation for teaching the standards along with links to the standards as set forth by the Archdiocese of Portland.

At St. Anne, we strive to provide our students with a well-rounded and culturally-rich education. In addition to the regular classroom academics of math, English language arts, social studies, science, and art, our students enjoy a variety of enrichment opportunities as they are available. Each year we enlist the talents of parish, school, and community members to bring new experiences to our students.

If you have concerns regarding the federal Common Core Standards, please click on the link below for a comprehensive and informative letter regarding Common Core from the Archdiocese of Portland Department of Catholic School.

Common Core Concerns

FROM POPE FRANCIS

St. Anne Catholic School welcomes people of all faiths and is committed to academic and spiritual excellence. We desire to equip our children to love and serve God and one another in a world full of immense challenges. If you are committed to providing your child(ren) with a strong academic and spiritual foundation, St. Anne is here to partner with you. Come talk to us and see if St. Anne Catholic School is right for your family.

“Catholic schools and universities are attended by many students who are not Christian or do not believe. Catholic educational institutions offer to all an approach to education that has at its aim the full development of the person, which responds to the right of every person to access to knowledge. However, they are also called upon to offer, with full respect for the freedom of each person and using the methods appropriate to the scholastic environment, the Christian belief, that is, to present Jesus Christ as the meaning of life, the cosmos, and history. Jesus began to proclaim the good news to [people] diverse in terms of race, culture, and religion. This context resembles today’s world.” In Catholic education, we are called to enable “Catholic identity to encounter the various ‘souls’ of multicultural society.” – Pope Francis

Three years in and looking forward to our fourth, I can say with complete confidence, there is no better school to give my son/child the best opportunity for success, academically and personally.  The family environment and scholastic drive are unparalleled.
