To achieve our mission and vision, Annunciation seeks to continually improve its rigorous common core-aligned curriculum through professional development, technology, and high learner expectations. Catholicism is the cornerstone of the vision, as evidenced by weekly Mass attendance, daily religious instruction, prayer throughout the day, and numerous opportunities for benevolent service.The students of Annunciation are led by a Christian staff to embody the values of Jesus; namely, service to God and others, love, compassion, and sacrifice. The seventh grade students participate in a community service hour program as a graduation requirement and recognition is given during awards programs for outstanding community service. Annunciation has a monthly school wide service project, which is associated with the Beta Club and Religious program at the school.
