Inspired by the message and teachings of Jesus Christ, Cathedral of the Annunciation School educates the whole child within the Catholic Christian tradition. While maintaining a high standard of academic excellence, we strive to create a safe environment that fosters a lifelong commitment to learning, serving, and achieving.
Cathedral of the Annunciation School strives to give expression to the educational mission of the Church entrusted to it by Jesus Christ. The mission is defined in To Teach As Jesus Did, a pastoral of American bishops. We concentrate on the effective integration of the sacred and the secular in our children. Enrolling a child in Annunciation School implies a willingness on the part of the parents to support, with their help and presence, any school activities that are undertaken toward these goals.
Annunciation School is a ministry of the Cathedral parish. As a Catholic Christian community, we have a personal commitment to Jesus Christ, and we make an earnest attempt to live out His teachings. Our school community can best celebrate its relationship with Christ and each other at the divine Eucharistic Sacrifice. “The liturgy is thus the outstanding means by which the faithful can express in their lives, and manifest to others, the mystery of Christ and the real nature of the true Church.” The Sunday liturgy is “the summit toward which the activity of the church is directed” and is “at the same time the fountain from which all power flows.” Therefore, it is expected that every Catholic parent and student will take seriously the obligation to worship the Lord on Sundays in fellowship as a community in our parish church.
The diverse talents of parents, teachers, clergy, and students are coordinated in such ways that the school becomes an extension of the family and the parish and is integrated into the larger community. Mindful of the fact that parents are the primary educators of their children, our focus is centered on challenging all students to develop spiritually, intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally. We also endeavor to instill in our students an appreciation of the aesthetic nature of the world our Lord created and to be responsible stewards of that world.
