The Catholic Faith
All students, regardless of denomination, attend daily religion class. These classes support the foundation of Catholic education, and are integral in the formation of students as Christians. Beginning in pre-kindergarten, students learn of the life of Jesus, His teachings, and His call to each of us to follow Him. Included in our theological teachings are service as ministry, Catholic doctrine, stewardship, and discipleship. Catholic Social Teachings are integrated into lessons across all subject areas.
Our school celebrates Mass each week at St. Anne Catholic Church. Students participate as altar servers, choir members, lectors, and ushers. Students in grades 3-8 gather monthly to pray the rosary. Catholic students also have the opportunity to receive the sacrament of Reconciliation twice a year. Catholic students, with the support of their families, are expected and encouragedd to fulfill their duties as responsible members of the Catholic community by attending Sunday Mass. Parents are responsible for arranging sacramental preparation instructions in their respective parishes.
