Does my child qualify for Annunziata School?

Annunziata School is one of two schools in the Archdiocese of St. Louis Special Education Program.  An Admissions Committee evaluates a student's completed application file to make a decision if one of the schools can provide the best environment and education for that student.  We are unable to say if a student "qualifies" until the full application is reviewed.  


What is the application process?

We are glad you asked!  The first is to call us at (314) 997-7727 and you can request an application and set up a tour or a phone call with the principal.  Our office staff can assist you should you have questions about the application.  Once completed and submitted, our Admissions Committee will meet to review the application and decide if Annunziata School is a good fit for your child.  If a student is accepted, the family will then move forward with the enrollment paperwork and secure a start date.
