The Saint Ann community would like to thank everyone who attended our 5th annual Gala de Mayo at St. Ignatius College Prep on May 12. Thanks to Chris Grubert and Big Shoulders Fund for being our guests of honor. The event was extremely successful in supporting the Padre Don Santa Cruz Scholarship Fund. This fund will carry on the work of Fr. Don McNeill, CSC for many years to come by assisting families who would otherwise not have the opportunity to send their children to Saint Ann School. Thank you for ensuring that all students receive the education they deserve!
We are proud to partner with many different organizations to make a Saint Ann education as strong as possible. Some partnerships are:

Roger Becerra is an alumnus of the Saint Ann class of 2012. Currently, he attends De La Salle Institute where he is diligently working through his senior year. He is also the older brother to a current 6th grader and 2nd grader here at school. We decided to get in touch with him for our alumni interview and talk to him about Saint Ann, high school, and his future.
Saint Ann: How is senior year going?
Roger: Senior year is pretty hard. I don’t like easy classes though. This year is challenging enough for me. If you look at my transcript, you’ll see that my classes have gotten more challenging each year. I’ve moved from College Prep classes to Honors and AP (Advanced Placement). This year I’m taking AP English, AP Physics, AP Calculus, and AP Spanish. Those are part of my seven courses. Outside of school, soccer season just finished, but indoor soccer is about to start. Boxing just started as well. I’m also in the National Honors Society and am the President of the Spanish Honors Society.
