Who We Are | Quienes Somos
Annunciation Catholic School is an intentionally small, multicultural, faith-based learning community in the heart of the Cole neighborhood in Denver, Colorado. We are a fully-accredited Archdiocesan Catholic School, and have been an active Teaching for Transformation (TfT) school. (Formerly an Expeditionary Learning (EL) school since 2012). Opening our doors in 1890, we are one of the oldest continuously operating schools in Denver, with a proud legacy of transforming generations of families and our entire community through the power of education.
We offer a rigorous, engaging, and supportive educational experience to students of any faith background, ethnic heritage, and family income. We believe in the power of smaller class sizes and a tight-knit school community: our student-staff ratio is 12:1, with around 180 students in the entire school. With the understanding that a diverse learning environment benefits and raises the level of achievement for all students, we work actively to attract and maintain a diverse school community. We've had families from Mexico, South Sudan, Ethiopia, El Salvador, Venezuela, Cuba, and many more from right here in Denver, Colorado. Children may enroll at Annunciation as young as three years old in our Preschool Program, and remain in our small, inclusive learning community through 8th grade.
At Annunciation, we believe that it is not enough to produce smart kids; we strive to form good, well-rounded young people with keen minds, healthy bodies, and compassionate souls. We value character formation as much as academic growth, and work hard to help students uncover their passions and confront their weaknesses with courage and tenacity. Here, students will grow from successes and failures, experience adventures in nature, engage in learning expeditions that build up the community, conduct fieldwork and research, produce high-quality work for authentic audiences, and discover they can do more than they thought possible.
