DISCOVER THE STREAM DIFFERENCE
St. Ann Catholic School in Bartlett’s commitment to remaining at the leading edge of Catholic education has been solidified with the STREAM designation. The STREAM model represents Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Math and was initiated by the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA).
STEM schools are required to meet certain criteria that set them apart from other schools as leaders in providing the 21st Century skills students need to be successful in today’s world. St. Ann is pleased to go beyond STEM to become a STREAM school by expanding the project-based, inquiry-driven STEM model into the areas of Religion and the Arts. We are proud of being a Catholic school, and this step will help us to more closely align our mission with our Catholic Identity. Additionally, highlighting and furthering the success of our Fine Arts program will help us meet our goal of educating the whole child.
As a STREAM school, St. Ann School will continue to offer a well-rounded, Christ-Centered education incorporating Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Math, designed to open student’s minds and imaginations to endless possibilities.
Our excellent fine arts program includes an art club, two bands, two outstanding upper grade choirs, a children’s choir, award-winning journalism club, and drama department. St. Ann drama students are sought after by directors from private to public institutions as they are award-winning leads in many high school performances.
Our Catholic tradition teaches us to make use of the strong intellects with which God gifted us - we use reason and inquiry in Religion classes to pursue ever deeper understandings of our faith life. Then, in a project-based environment we seek to make manifest God's love for us through service learning in the community.
Critical minds and compassionate hearts - those are the hallmarks of a STREAM education.
