Community Involvement

St. Ann School is committed to not only teaching the Catholic faith but to living it. We believe that our light must shine for all to see so that Christ can be known and loved. The school, therefore, participates in a variety of community related activities. Some of our involvement in local events includes:

  • Hosting an athletic league in our gym.
  • Sharing our spirit in celebrations such as the Sgt. John Basilone Parade in Raritan, or the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Somerville.
  • Hosting Boy and Girl Scout events.


The School of St. Ann

"Enter & Learn, Leave & Serve."

St. Ann School is a Catholic Elementary School founded in Raritan, New Jersey. Co-educational from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8, St. Ann School is under the general supervision of the Metuchen Diocesan Superintendent of Schools. Locally it is under the direction of the Pastor of St. Ann Parish and the community of the Religious Teachers Filippini, whose Motherhouse is in Morristown, New Jersey.

The goal of our Religious and Lay Faculty, as dedicated educators, is to create a Catholic Christian environment. We believe that "Catholic schools which realize the threefold purpose of Christian education, to teach doctrine, to build community, and to serve, are the most effective means available to the Church for the education of children and young people."
We, the Administration, Faculty and Staff of St. Ann School believe that our primary mission as Catholic Educators is to nurture in our school family a personal relationship with our Triune God. In partnership with the Parents, we are committed to developing the spiritual, academic, social, physical and cultural dimensions of all students, enabling them to live responsibly and creatively in a global environment.

    Therefore, we are called to:
  • See each child as a continuation of God's creation
  • Create an atmosphere of prayer within the school
  • Commit ourselves to academic excellence
  • Celebrate the potential of each child to develop physically and learn social graces
  • Provide each child with an educational environment that embraces compassion and reverence for all people
  • Give witness by our lives that God is the Lord of our lives.
St Ann Ground Breaking Ceromony
The single most important goal of St. Ann School is to develop the whole child – spiritually, academically, physically, socially and culturally – in order for the child to have an appreciation of God, self and society. The school has a religious purpose and an academic purpose that are two aspects of a single environment based in Roman Catholic Tradition.

St. Ann School is a community of learning committed to the teachings of Jesus. Our teachers strive to develop the children's spiritual life through an intimate relationship between God and our students in all aspects of their lives.
We build on the foundation of morals and values begun at home. The tenets of our faith are not simply taught; they become a reality to be lived as we serve God and one another.

The academic purpose of our school is achieved through a well-rounded curriculum. The priority of St. Ann School is placed on basic skills achieved through multi-faceted programs of traditional teaching methods integrated with technology, higher level thinking skills and problem solving techniques. Furthermore, each student is looked upon as a unique individual with strengths to be recognized and developed.

Our school instills pride and respect for each child's physical and human nature. We emphasize the belief that God dwells within us. Therefore, we raise a conscious awareness of each child's physical needs through reinforcement of proper health habits: proper nourishment, cleanliness, exercise and appropriate time to relax and rest.

Since man lives in community, children need to be instilled with positive patterns of social behavior. The students are made aware of their social responsibilities to themselves and to others, not only through pre-existent values, but also through the example of the adults who present these values to them.

A supportive, positive attitude is encouraged in student relationships. Our students are taught to accept, understand and respect the differences in the various cultures present in our school and in our world. They also participate in programs that enhance their appreciation of the music and the visual art of the different cultures.

The Saint Ann School Community takes pride in its family spirit. Professional educators work cooperatively to affirm each other through mutual respect. There is also a rapport between teacher and student which goes beyond the academic. Priests, principal, teachers and parents support each other with an openness that focuses on communications and the awareness of each other's responsibility: a happy, educated and functional child.

At Saint Ann School, we incorporate the philosophy of the Catholic Church into our school. Faith, knowledge, love and respect are the foundation of the child and the school.

"Catholic school principal is practicing what she is preaching as a Super Summer Reader."

Dear Friends of St. Ann School,


Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated throughout the Church this month.  St. Ann School is no exception.  As Religious Teacher’s Filippini, our tradition is to have a statue of Our Lady greet the children as they enter the building.  Each of our schools all over the world also has the tradition of praying a decade of the Rosary with students each day.


I just love walking by a classroom listening to children’s innocent and sincere prayers before beginning their Rosary.  Some pray for their grandmother who is having eye surgery or getting a walker.  There are prayers for a dad going on a trip, for a favorite aunt who lost her necklace, and for mom’s who have too much work to do.  It is easy to see why God delights in the prayers of his children.


In the lower grades, the rosary is the prayer that calms the children down after lunch recess.  It helps children refocus and prepares them for a blessed and peaceful afternoon.


During October, we take the time to focus more clearly on the mysteries of the Rosary.  Teachers share the meaning and salvation history story for each decade.  Some teachers enhance the prayer with music or with meditations geared for children found on the internet.


As Catholics I know that many of you have a strong devotion to our Lady.  I have watched you gently finger your beads while praying in Church.  This is an excellent example for our children.  They realize that Our Lady is not just for kids, that the grown-ups of our faith love and value their relationship with Mary, the Mother of God.  Thank you for this faith witness.

                                God bless you,

                                       Sr. Mary Klersey, MPF
