Saint Ann’s School is an independent, non-sectarian day school offering instruction to students in preschool through 12th grade. This website offers multiple windows into our history, philosophy, admissions process, curriculum, and courses, as well as news and general information of interest to parents, alumni, and others. Through each of these windows you will glimpse the joy and vibrancy that has animated education at Saint Ann since its founding in 1965, and that one finds today in our classrooms, rehearsal spaces, studios, laboratories, and lobbies. Over the past 50 years, Saint Ann has embraced a commitment to education for its own sake, oriented to the capacities of each individual student, free of the encumbrances of formal grading. At the same time, we are unabashedly committed to excellence in all that we do. The lives of our graduates, their achievements as dancers and doctors, poets and physicists, musicians and mathematicians, speak powerfully to the potential of an education based on these principles to ignite a passion for learning and to sustain creative energy in every field of endeavor. We accomplish this by offering talented students instruction shaped by creative and dedicated faculty, forming a true community of learners from pre-Kindergarten through high school.

We believe education is a rich, subtle exploration and questioning of the world, not a means to an end. Since 1965 Saint Ann's School has brought together gifted children and passionate teachers in a fierce pursuit of knowledge, skill, and artistry. We cultivate a joy for learning through a deep and rigorous curriculum, in which the arts are an essential presence. So that every child will flourish, we eschew grades, rankings, and prizes in favor of ongoing dialogue and teacher reports. At Saint Ann's we offer our dreams to those who will share theirs with us.
