An education from St. Anne’s School of Annapolis carries weight, especially when it comes to high school placement. The most competitive high schools seek out our graduates because they have a reputation of making a school’s community stronger. Our graduates stand out as being model citizens with the confidence and ability to successfully manage rigorous academics and the autonomy to take on greater personal responsibility in high school.
We make choosing the right school a collaborative effort between school and home. Parents value the support and direction we provide throughout this pivotal time in their child’s life. And, because of our holistic approach to educating the learner, we really get to know every student’s unique personality and individual strengths. As a result, we are able to guide each student toward a high school that will continue to challenge them academically, inspire their interests, and encourage them to be impactful within the community.
Our graduates leave St. Anne’s School with a strong sense of who they are and what they can accomplish. They journey into their future with excitement and confidence.
Here’s how we do it:
- Guidance from the Upper School Placement Director begins in the spring of Seventh Grade.
- In May, we host our Upper School Fair exclusively for Seventh Grade students and parents to meet with admission representatives from area private day and boarding schools as well as select public high school programs, to gather information, and to ask questions.
- Parents meet with the Upper School Placement Director all along the journey to discuss options, review programs and seek guidance as needed.
- During the application process, our Upper School Placement Director is in personal contact with each student, family and the respective admission directors.
- During the fall of Eighth Grade, students take a High School Seminar intensive class that focuses on the details of the application process, such as: interviewing skills, essay writing tips, and continued research on high schools of interest.
