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.

Left: Family Fun Night ––– Right: 100 Day Celebration
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,

This week the school switched from summer to winter uniform.  True to form, God had something to say about that.  Every year without fail, the good Lord chooses this seemingly insignificant event to show us that He is in charge and to give me cause to question His sense of humor.

You may remember that the temperature Monday moved back into the 80’s.  The weather people told us about this but the calendar says its autumn and temperatures are cooler with winter winds preparing to chill us to the bone at the earliest opportunity.

Families pulled out the sweaters and sweatpants, long socks, and the rest of our cooling days’ attire.   The maintenance crew had already turned off the air conditioning units and were discussing how much “salt” we will need this winter.  I myself had washed my dear grays and put them in storage until Memorial Day. 

With every child still in the groove of joyful obedience, trying to follow school rules and please this crazy principal, Monday arrived.  A sea of red sweaters greeted me in the morning.  By lunchtime, we were all dripping.  Sweaters were slid into backpacks and little eyes peered into mine questioning my sanity.

I could have sworn that as I came out of the building to greet our bus drivers at the end of the day, that I heard rip roaring laughter.  God had the whole heavenly court laughing at His little joke.  We can put forth all the dictates we want, but He is in charge.  His will, right down to the weather, remains in His control. 

It humbles me to the core.  We make our adjustments and carry on.  And God continues to remain faithful to His promises to us.  He continues to be a good and gracious God.  He continues to be God.

As a school we strive every day to see God and His will in what occurs with and around us.  We learn to discern His voice amid the cacophony of other voices contrary to His own.  We learn to laugh when He laughs and to cry when He cries.

We have learn this and reinforce it constantly because some day our graduates will hear and know the voice of God.  When he asks, “Whom shall I send?”, each student will be able to confidently say, “Here I am, Lord.  Send me.”

Thank you for your continued support.  Do what you can to help us continue to offer this unique education to all children, regardless of their financial position in life.

God bless you,

Sr. Mary
