A decade of darkness has ended, next year we bring back the KSA Monsignor Sullivan willed to us. With a new principal, new priest, some new staff, and several new teachers, joining the best of the schools remaining hardworking, dedicated, and professional teachers and experienced staff that never lost
... Read more the vision. The school charter will again become living words. My family has had 15 students from 5 generations attend KSA. We watched with sadness the decay so obvious to so many for the past 10 years. Over 30 full pay families took their children to other schools in 2012 2013 school year. We thought all was lost but God heard our prayers and sent Fr. Mike who listened and then fought for what was right. How can you expel a 5 year old child but give a "Student Body Spirit Award" to an 8th grade graduate boy who has bullied other children for several years and was involved in every bullying activity at KSA?

I got on your website and was SHOCKED to see the most recent rating of Kearns-Saint Ann School. What school was this parent talking about? It certainly isn't where my child is presently receiving a wonderful education. Yes, we help many families in need, but isn't that what a Catholic education is

For those of you who are looking for a wonderful place to educate your child, a warm caring place, full of spirituality, and morals of both children and staff, this is the place to be. My child will be well prepared for both high school and college, and I am sure your child would be too. Read less

Leadership any vision are nowhere to be found. My parental observation is KSA has evolved into a charity school where it so many are getting a free ride or significant assistance, which is significantly limits the money the school has to work with and the pool of families that contribute to fund raising.

For 10 grades (pre-k until 8), half of the teachers my child had were wonderful, however only about half of those remain. A few hires of the last few years seemed good. Several volunteers are horrible.
