About St. James and St. Ann's School

  • Educating the whole child to build a foundation for life.

    In August 1985, an eight-room school surrounded by 17 acres of property was purchased from the Community Baptist Church, and in September of 1985, the doors of St. Ann’s School opened with a small number of Kindergarten and Grade 1 students.  Now, after more than 30 years of educating students in the Abbotsford area, and a few name changes, the building contains a very active Kindergarten to Grade 7 school known as St. James & St. Ann’s School.
