Annunciation educates the whole child; spiritually, ethically, intellectually, socially, and physically in a caring, nurturing environment that prepares students for a 21st century world. STREAM is a system-wide model for education that is infused throughout the day and in after school programs and clubs by inspiring creativity, technology and research. STREAM (Science Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Math) encourages children to test, explore, expand, or completely change thoughts and approaches for real world challenges.
Uniquely created for a specific purpose, we seek to optimize each child’s God-given talents. We are dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence and life-long commitment to Christ and the Church. We consider it essential to teach each student to live in accordance with the spiritual, moral and ethical principles exemplified in the scriptures, teachings, and traditions of the Catholic Church. Upon graduation, our students further their education at Catholic high schools in Scottsdale and Phoenix.
