Welcome to the Columbus, Ga., area and to St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School! St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School is located just off I-185, near Fort Moore, on a 26-acre campus serving students from Preschool (age 1) to 12th grades. We offer small classes with a surprisingly wide variety of activities and athletics. Our campus is warm and welcoming to new students and families.

Approximately 15 percent of our students have an active-duty parent and nine percent have a retired military parent. The families represent all military ranks, and live both on- and off-post in Columbus, Phenix City, or Harris County. Another five percent of our families have a retired military parent.

Our military population is important to our school. We pray for those who serve in our military at school Masses and in daily prayers. Various classes support our troops with service projects or host Veterans Day activities. Several faculty and staff members are retired military or the spouse of an active duty or retired soldier. We also are proud to have many graduates who have gone on to military careers. 

In recognition of your service, we are pleased to offer the following discounts and benefits to our active duty military families:

  • The $50 Application Fee is waived. Use coupon code PopePius when applying online to avoid the fee. ​
  • Families who are relocating to the area as a result of a military move may be eligible for a $500 military transfer credit. This one-time credit will be applied to tuition and fees.  
  • Several scholarships are available specifically for military students.

With these benefits and other tuition assistance, we strive to make a Catholic education affordable for you. As St. Anne-Pacelli conducts admissions throughout the year, we welcome you to contact us at any time. You'll find answers to many frequently asked questions on our Admissions page. You also may fill out an application online, or view current tuition information

If you have questions or would like to schedule a tour, please email Director of Admissions Julie Davis. We look forward to working with you to become part of the Viking family!
