About St. Anne School
St. Anne School is a private Catholic school within and recognized by the Diocese of Orange. St. Anne School was founded as a Christian School in accordance with the Roman Catholic tradition in 1992 by a group of parents, clergy and community leaders serving children of all faiths in Preschool through eighth grade. The original site was a leased parcel of land in Laguna Niguel situated with modular classrooms. Throughout the next three years St. Anne School experienced steady enrollment. In 1995, a committee of parents located and arranged for the purchase of 7.5 acres of land in Laguna Niguel for the permanent home of St. Anne School. Phase I opened on September 12, 1996. Phase II, a 25,000 square foot multi-purpose building, opened on September 14, 1998. This facility, called the Queen of Life Center, includes classrooms, a gymnasium, chapel, kitchen, stage, locker rooms, and offices. On September 15, 1999, Phase III named Christ the King, was occupied by the kindergarten through fourth grade students. The administrative offices and conference rooms were also a part of Phase III. The final phase, Mother Teresa Center, opened in March of 2000. Mother Teresa Center houses the Presc...hool, Daycare Center, Library and Middle School. Now complete, the 95,000 square foot facility accommodates over 800 students in Preschool through eighth grade. In July of 2006, St. Anne School began the process of becoming a private Catholic school. After a three year period of discernment involving the Diocese of Orange, the Board of Directors and Parent Community, St. Anne School officially became a private Catholic school effective July 1, 2009. St. Anne School is a California non-profit religious corporation, registered as a tax-exempt organization with the federal and state authorities under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) and is eligible to accept tax deductible donations.
