Over the past 50 years, Saint Ann’s 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.
Saint Ann’s students experience music as performers, composers, and historians. The curriculum provides expansive opportunities by incorporating a wide selection of courses and a diversity of instructional approaches that enable a well-rounded musical education. In all of our programs, at every age level, we celebrate the vitality of music, and make it a central part of life at Saint Ann’s.
