Last year, SAA lived within her means: that is, finances were put in order, facilities were improved, no solicitations done, no fund raising. Voila! We survived and enjoyed the surpluses of good financial management. Incentives and benefits were given to teachers. Students who had financial difficulties were taken cared of. We tilted the gravity towards "the Church of the poor!" They were our treasures. When many of them could not pay the tuition or other fees, the good God always gave us a way to help.

We remain grateful to many alumni who offered to help. We declined however, because we wanted to see whether SAA academy can survive financially by putting in order the system of accounting and auditing.

This year we open the scholarship fund from any generous person: THE BURSE OF ST. JOACHIM. The scholarship foundation will be duly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. All donations will be properly receipted. Only designated cashier and school treasurer can receive donations and an audited financial report will be given to those who sponsor our students.

So, the BURSE OF ST. JOACHIM is now open!


The school year 2009-2010 opened with so much hope and prayer that it will be a NEW EXPERIENCE OF GOD'S LOVE AND PROVIDENCE. The costs were high in improving facilities and in improving classroom instruction: syllabus were reviewed, textbooks distributed, academic equipments purchased, plus 100 PERCENT TRUST IN GOD'S LOVE AND PROVIDENCE. We are just at the beginning.. the end is not in view. What we see unfold before us is GOD'S LOVE AND PROVIDENCE for our 420 students and 17 teachers.


The New Academic Year at St. Anne Academy opened smoothly last June 1, 2009 with the BLESSING OF STUDENTS AND TEACHERS and the SALUTE TO THE PHILIPPINE FLAG. The more than one hundred freshmen were then welcomed by their advisers and a series of orientation meetings were given. After recess of the first day, classes were in full swing.

St. Anne Academy this year takes pride in having new teachers who were alumni of SAA and who excelled in their college years as cum laude and the like. Officialy, all freshmen, transferees and new teaches will be welcomed in SCHOOL CONVOCATION ON June 26, 2009.
