At any school, students must take math and reading. But, at St. Anne, studying our Catholic Faith also occupies a preeminent place. In this way, students turn not only their hearts to Jesus, but also their minds.
Religion classes are taught every day on every grade level. All of St. Anne's teachers have been or are being certified by the Rockford Diocese for catechetical teaching, ensuring that the lessons learned by the students are faithful to Catholic teaching. The curriculum is focused on the sacraments, the Bible, and the saints in order to show students how to live out their relationship with Jesus.
Religious imagery and art also fill the classrooms and hallways. These images encourage devotion and recollection in our students, and are often student-generated. Also a regular feature of the classrooms and hallways is the presence of the parish priest, who is frequently available to the students for a friendly wave, a prayer intention, or answers to their important questions.
