Communion of Saints School was established in 2010 with the merger of four parishes in the Diocese of Cleveland. The school continues the legacy of Saint Ann School which began in 1916. In September of 2010, Communion of Saints School was named a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, an honor bestowed on only 50 private schools nationwide.

The curriculum of Communion of Saints School attempts to ensure that academic success is attained by all of our students. As a Catholic school, our program is permeated with a spirit of mutual respect and concern for each individual. We utilize a curriculum developed by the Diocese of Cleveland in compliance with the Ohio State Standards.
The Curriculum Includes:
Religion, Language Arts (including English,Reading, Spelling, and Handwriting), Mathematics, Science (including Health and Safety), Social Studies, Fine Arts (including Music and Art), Physical Education, and Spanish.
Religion is taught daily in all grades and students and staff worship together at mass weekly. In addition, seasonal prayer services are held. The Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are celebrated as a parish event through parish preparation.
Our state-of-the-art Science and Technology Center offers students in all grades the opportunity to discover the wonders of science and explore its applications to everyday life. The center comprises a lecture room and two modern student laboratories, giving teachers the opportunity to blend classroom instruction with hands-on experiments and activities.
A fleet of iPads and Chromebooks are available for class use, allowing students in grades three through eight to utilize the Internet for educational and research purposes. Desktop computers are used in kindergarten through grade three. In addition, every classroom is equipped with a Smart Board and projector to enhance student learning.
At Communion of Saints School we are more concerned about the individual progress of each child. Our teachers individualize lesson plans around the strengths and challenges that our students face. Our goal is to take each student to the next level of learning.
Today’s society is focused on teaching children to test well. Even though Communion of Saints School cautions those who would place too much emphasis on standardized testing, we appreciate and participate in standardized testing as one way to measure success. Communion of Saints School uses MAP testing. MAP tests are interim assessments that are administered in the form of a computerized adaptive test (CAT). MAP tests are constructed to measure student achievement from Grades K to 8 in math, reading, language usage, and science and are aligned to the Ohio state standards
One of the measures of an elementary school is how its students perform in high school. We continually receive positive comments from local high schools about how well our students are prepared.
