Principal’s Message

Dear Students and Families of St. Anne’s Catholic Secondary School,

Welcome to St. Anne’s CSS! St. Anne’s is a special school and it provides a first class education that is rooted in our Catholic faith.

This year’s school theme “Journeying Together” invites us to walk alongside everyone in our community. We are called to journey with our community and that includes sharing our time and talents to make the world a better place. Additionally, it means that we should always be working hard, be a good person, and living life to the fullest as these are traits that God is calling us to be.

The St. Anne’s CSS community has a strong reputation for academic excellence, our Catholic faith, collaboration, a strong work ethic, and a willingness to accept others. Since 1995, the school community has provided a very well rounded Catholic secondary education in Huron County. With St. Anne as our Patron, we are blessed to carry on the rich traditions of the Catholic faith community and look after each member of your family and that includes those that have come before us and those who will follow in our footsteps. St Anne has a very special place in the hearts and minds of the Holy Family, the Church, and indeed all of us who strive to live a life as Anne did – one filled with love, faith, hope and service. Our Patron Saint provides a role model for staff and students alike. These characteristics are something that we strive to model in our actions and our words, every day.

At St. Anne’s CSS, we refer to ourselves as “The Eagles”. These words are based on the scriptural passage by the Prophet Isaiah (Chapter 40: Verse 31); providing an image of one being lifted up on the wings of an Eagle or an Angel.
Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.

The tremendous team of staff members at St. Anne’s CSS truly care about each and every student. Frequently, the staff of the school receives compliments and gratitude for the many ways in which our school community reaches out to help and support students, families and communities that we live in or within.

St. Anne’s CSS is an incredibly special place and when you walk into the doors of the school, you feel something special about the building and the people within its walls. I am very honored to serve as the Principal of this great school. Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or to learn more about our school.

Blessings,

Mr. Chris Grace, Principal
