Episcopal Tradition

Episcopal Tradition

Your decision regarding your child’s education will impact their future for years to come. So why would you choose an Episcopal school for your child? Because the mission of Episcopal schools is to blend the encouragement of rich moral and ethical understanding and behavior with the academic learning experience. Episcopal schools are created to be models of God's love and grace. At St. Anne’s School, the Episcopal principles are at the core of our educational approach. We guide and challenge our students to build lives of genuine meaning, purpose, and service within their community.

More reasons why an Episcopal school is the right choice:

  • An Episcopal education is far reaching—it encompasses both the heart and the mind. It demonstrates and proclaims the unique worth and beauty of all human beings, from increasingly diverse religious, cultural, and economic backgrounds, as creations of a loving, empowering God.
  • We believe that everyone should use their own gifts to help others. At St. Anne’s School, we value and emphasize a community life in which the physical, spiritual, and emotional health of all are supported and nurtured. Community service is an integral part of the life of the school. 
  • Students, faculty, and staff come together each week for regular chapel and worship services that are engaging, age-appropriate, inclusive, and grounded in the traditions of the Episcopal faith. Families in our school community are always welcome at our services.
  • St. Anne’s School of Annapolis grew from St. Anne’s Preschool and Kindergarten, originally founded at St. Anne’s Church in Annapolis. Today, the school is incorporated independently, and the church and school function as two separate organizations with wholly separate governance. At the same time, we maintain a friendly relationship with St. Anne’s church and all the Episcopal churches in the Annapolis region, so that our students may benefit from the cultural, historical, and examples of worship, offered to the school and the community.
