AnnunciationCatholic School educates
Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade and is an accredited school within the Diocese of St. Augustine. Our school is supported by the three Catholic Churches in Clay County, Florida: St. Luke in Middleburg, St. Catherine in Orange Park and Sacred Heart in Fleming Island.
We educate both Catholic and non-Catholic students in an environment of spirituality, academic success, social responsibility, discipline and leadership.
Annunciation Catholic School has two classes per grade level with a maximum student population of 500. Students receive daily instruction in religion, language arts, science, mathematics and social studies. All students attend a weekly school Mass and are further enriched by weekly instruction in art, music, physical education, Spanish, technology and media science. Our students are held to high academic and behavioral standards while being guided to develop the self discipline necessary for a successful life. Community Service Projects at all grade levels are integrated into the learning environment.
Annunciation Catholic School is accredited by the Florida Catholic Conference and proudly follows the curriculum established by the Diocese of St. Augustine meeting (or exceeding) all state and national standards in academic areas. Our excellent academic program offers a strong foundation for future learning while developing critical thinking skills. A variety of instructional methods are used to meet individual learning styles.
Pope Francis has called the Church to observe a Year of Consecrated Life. It will officially open on the First Sunday of Advent, Nov. 30, 2014, and close on Feb. 2, 2016 (World Day of Consecrated Life). The observance is an effort to help the Catholic laity gain a deeper understanding of the life of men and women religious along with their charisms.

Collection for Retirement Fund for Religious is Dec. 6-7 at parishes
Senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests have spent their lives ministering to others, often for little, if any, pay. Their sacrifices now leave their religious communities without adequate savings for retirement and health care. Please help promote the Retirement Fund for Religious, which supports the day-to-day care of roughly 35,000 senior religious, providing necessities such as prescription medications and nursing care. Please encourage parishioners to give to those who have given a lifetime.
The Mission of Annunciation Catholic School is to develop the potential of every child while fostering the Christian ideals of love, witness, and service in partnership with families and parishes.
