As my oldest daughter approached Kindergarten I worried about finding the perfect balance of a working mom, grade school child and a preschooler. St Anne School was the answer to all my prayers. SAS has provided an incredibly supportive environment for working parents, with affordable and extremely flexible before and after school care options as well as an extensive preschool program. I have wonderful peace of mind that my children are at the same location throughout the day. Teachers are also so caring and patient with the children, 5 years later we are very happy to be a part of the SAS community.
I love St. Anne because it is fun learning math and reading. I love my friends and teachers. I get to learn all about God and Jesus. It is fun learning about Mother Mary and her mother St. Anne.”

I have been at St. Anne School since first grade and have enjoyed every moment. From faith to sportsmanship, St. Anne’s has been a light in my life and a joy to come to everyday. St. Anne’s has very friendly staff with an amiable atmosphere. The teachers help me find my way when I am lost or confused and you can’t find their comfort at any other school. I have also grown in my Catholic Christian faith thanks to Mrs. Kapka’s daily prayers and reading on the intercom and meetings with Fr. Bernie. I am so glad my parents chose to send me here to this wonderful environment. I will be sad to leave my second home, but I know I will be confident and ready for the next chapter of my life, high school. Go Cardinals!

St Anne’s is an extraordinary school from preschool through middle school. The teachers and staff are dedicated to not only providing the best education but also nurturing students to reach their fullest potential both academically and socially. The middle school curriculum prepares St Anne’s students for a successful transition to the academic challenges of high school. St Anne’s students enter high school at honor level classes for math and all other subjects. Without a doubt, St Anne’s provides the solid foundation needed for future academic success! We are so grateful for such a top notch school in our community.”

In looking for the right Middle School for our eleven year old child, we knew we wanted a Catholic school, a challenging curriculum and an nurturing classroom environment. When we visited St. Anne School and met with Principal Kapka, I learned about the STEM curriculum for Middle School, and the many creative avenues for learning – such as the Science Fair and Genius Day. I was impressed with the course offerings and felt this program would prepare my son well for high school. He comes home happy, inspired and is blossoming into a fine Middle School student. We believe that St. Anne School is a good place where parents and teachers can come together to provide an excellent education and experience for students.”
I am so prepared at Carmel High School, that as a freshman, I am tutoring sophomores in English.

I believe that it was no coincidence that five of the eight St. Viator students named National Merit Commended Scholars and Semifinalists came from Saint Anne School in Barrington. As a Saint Anne student, I was shaped into a student of integrity and determination. I was taught to work hard and thoroughly; this has benefitted me immensely during my time at St. Viator. I am especially grateful for Mr. Blake and his grammar machine. His teachings continue to guide me when reading and writing, and they are invaluable when taking standardized tests. I will forever cherish my time spent at Saint Anne School.

“My daughter, a first grader with Type I Diabetes, is in excellent hands throughout her school day at St. Anne Parish School. The team approach, lead by Nurse Bonkowski, is a caring and attentive style of managing my daughter’s medical needs. Our daughter thrives in her classroom environment and is given the independence that she needs as a 1st grade student. We know that she is in a safe and loving environment at St. Anne’s! I am grateful for the support and daily management that the St. Anne’s staff gives to my daughter.”
