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:
- Our Upper School Placement Director, with support from the Head of Middle School, begin guiding parents and students in the high school selection process in the Seventh Grade.
- Key transition and informative meetings are held for both parents and students in the fall, winter and spring of the Seventh Grade year to help launch the high school search and support families in the beginning stages of this selection process.
- In the spring, we host our annual 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.
- At the start of the Eighth Grade year, parents are invited to attend a high school preparation meeting where specific details are provided to help support the application process to high schools.
- As a part of the Eighth Grade course schedule, students attend an Eighth Grade Seminar class during the first trimester that focuses on the details of the application process, such as: interviewing skills, essay writing tips, and continued research on high schools of interest. The St. Anne’s School administration and faculty participate in mock interview practice during the fall of the Eighth Grade year to help students prepare for interviews.
- Throughout the entire process, the Upper School Placement Director is in personal contact with each student, family and the respective admission directors.
