A Letter from our Principal

Thank you for your interest in St. Anastasia Catholic School.  For nearly 90 years, St. Anastasia has been educating children in the Roman Catholic tradition of faith, academic excellence and service to others.  As it is stated in our Mission Statement, St. Anastasia was founded on the premise that each student has a unique and dynamic relationship with God. Our mission is to understand the individual gifts each child possesses, and develop in the four areas of life - spiritual, intellectual, physical and emotional.  This prepares them to go on to high school with the foundation to be disciples of Jesus Christ in our ever changing world.

 

While recognizing that parents are the primary educators, they form a special partnership with our teachers and staff to help each child develop in these four areas.  Our school takes special pride in establishing that relationship with our families, which has been its tradition since we were incepted by the Sisters of The Holy Child Jesus in 1926.  We offer a rigorous curriculum to prepare our students to be lifelong learners, meeting the benchmarks of the common core standards and the curriculum standards of the Archdiocese of Chicago, who has won more Blue Ribbon Awards than any other school system in the country.

 

Leadership development is also a priority at St. Anastasia, offering service opportunities and requirements, including programs with The National Junior Honor Society and other extracurricular activities.  We also emphasize the values of self and mutual respect for others and personal responsibility, as was taught by Jesus Christ.

 

St. Anastasia also has a strong, long standing tradition in the community for providing the spiritual wellbeing of our students, with weekly liturgical celebrations, community prayer, religious study and sacramental preparation.   Our staff is accredited in the Catechetical Program in the Archdiocese of Chicago, with a dedication to sharing their faith with our students.

 

As you can see, we have a lot to offer our students and families at St. Anastasia, and we are truly grateful for the ability to be a part of each of our student’s lives, and the lives of their families.

 

Sincerely,

 

Kristine Hillmann, Ed. D
