FACTS ABOUT CHICAGO ST. ANN HIGH SCHOOL
Year opened as co-ed, 2-yr school: 1937
Became 4-yr and all-girls':
**From Micaela Calleros-Stelter (Class of 1975):
"I graduated from St Ann HS in 1975. They were the best years of my teen
life. Some nuns were stern, but never mean. It was the first time in my life when I didn't struggle with math. The sisters
were very patient. Miss Judy Powers was our music/choir teacher, and we rocked at the Christmas concerts!
I later found out that Miss Powers married Father Tom. Beautiful memories of St Ann. ❤️"
**From Alma Leal Hernandez (Class of 1979):
"I graduated from St. Ann's High School in 1979 and moved out of Chicago that same year. I remember being terribly
saddened when I heard about the school's closing. I visit Chicago very often and drive by the school because my family
still lives in the area. If possible, I would love to hear from other St. Ann's '79 alumni and reminisce about our high
school days (firstname.lastname@example.org
**From Elaine Mrozek Olszewski (Class of 1953):
"I graduated from St. Ann High School in 1953 when it was co-ed. My classmates and I get together at least once a year.
In 1953 there were 33 classmates that graduated from St. Ann. It was a great experience."
**From Marcela Licea:
"I attended St. Ann High School from 9/73 to 6/76. It was a wonderful school. I remember Mrs. Shoeffer
who was kind and wonderful. I remember Maria Campuzano, my best friend."
**From Judy Olszewski:
"I graduated from St. Ann High School in 1970. It was an all girl high school. There were 39 graduates in
1970 and 200 girls total in the school that year."
**From Joan Macuszek:
"I graduated from St Ann in 1972, I remember the great friends I had there, and waiting in line to get into the lunch...store..that
was in a large closet. I remember our elephant grays..uniforms..also I remember most nuns were stern and mean, a few
were nice, and the lay teachers were very nice....I was also saddened to find out that St Ann is permanently closed...you
can see the building on google maps...still looks the same after all these years!"
