About Our School
Mission, Vision, and Values
Annunciata School is a Catholic Educational Community committed to providing a quality Elementary Education for boys and girls pre-school through eighth grade. In partnership with parents and guardians, we have as our primary concern the intellectual and spiritual development of the students based on a strong foundation of Catholic tradition, values, and service that is strengthened by Faith.
Our vision is to prepare our students for their roles as responsible individuals in their Family, Church, and Community as they move forward into the 21st Century.
Catholic education is an expression of the mission entrusted to the church by Jesus Christ. Annunciata's philosophy is to provide a sound Catholic educational atmosphere for each student where spiritual growth and academic success may be achieved.
Catholic education at Annunciata is motivating, developing, and guiding each child, whether it be spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally, or socially. This will help each child develop his/her own personality to its fullest potential as a Catholic citizen and enable him/her to contribute usefully to the betterment of society.
We at Annunciata recognize that the parents are the primary educators of their children. We realize that everyone in the Annunciata community is called to form a Catholic educational community, a community of faith, which is a very important part of the larger Annunciata Parish Community.
