Saint Anne Catholic School is accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and co-accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). The review of the school by these organizations assures that our education program maintains high standards and are continuously improving. We must apply for reaffirmation of our accreditations every few years, depending upon our most recent evaluation.
