Welcome, Military Families!
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 Benning, 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 20 percent of our students are the children of active duty military parents. 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. Recently our 8th-12th grade students were treated to a visit from General Mike Garrett, who attended St. Anne-Pacelli from the 4th-9th grades. Click here for information about General Garrett’s visit.
Our longstanding relationship with Fort Benning has taught us how to make your transition easier. We have partnered with the Ft. Benning School Liaison Officer to address educational issues involving military children. Our Home & School Association also has a Military Liaison parent volunteer to assist our military families get engaged in our school community.
In recognition of your service, we are pleased to offer the following discounts and benefits to our active duty military families:
