MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
Thank you for your interest in our amazing school community! Since 1956, our beautiful campus in the heart of downtown Naples has welcomed families of all backgrounds and cultures throughout the Collier County area seeking a quality faith-based educational experience for their children. We have a rich history and enjoy an excellent reputation as a school with smaller class sizes that uniquely designs its education to meet the individual needs of all children…one that is academically challenging, with a strong sense of community, and incorporates the Catholic teachings to create disciples of Christ.
Fully accredited by the Florida Catholic conference, and affiliated with the Diocese of Venice, St. Ann Catholic School is a co-educational parish school of St. Ann Parish serving children in grades Pre-K (age 3) through grade 8. The principles and standards of the Florida Catholic Conference integrate Catholic faith and values with daily life and learning. These same standards have been integrated into the school’s curriculum, providing students with the unique advantages and support of a Catholic school education.
Our students/disciples are taught the necessary skills for their life’s work in the kingdom of God within a disciplined, caring, loving, and safe environment. Our emphasis and dedication to high academic standards for all students is evident throughout the school’s modern, state-of-the-art campus and well-rounded faith infused curriculum: gifted, honors, and resource classes, integration of technology in all grade levels (1 to 1 iPads for students in grades 5-8), emphasis on the arts with classes in band, choir, art, music, drama, physical education and athletic teams in basketball, soccer, volleyball, golf, tennis, and track, foreign languages (Spanish and Latin), and a host of other extra-curricular activities and field trips that round each child’s complete education. Most importantly, through the amazing dedication and commitment of our highly trained professional teachers and staff, each child is nurtured to reach their fullest potential.
At St. Ann Catholic School, we collaborate with our parents to build a bright future for their children/disciples based on a solid foundation of excellence in academics, leadership, community, and the Catholic faith. We look forward to welcoming you to our school family and working together to create future disciples of Spirit, Mind, and Body!
Thanks and God Bless,
Mr. Michael G. Buskirk Ed. S.
St. Ann Catholic School
