In February of 1995, Reverend Patrick J. Caverly, V.G., pastor of the Church of the Annunciation, and a group of parishioners took on the challenge of starting a new school. “The Promise and the Dream” campaign was kicked off to fund the construction of Annunciation Catholic Academy.
Two kindergarten classes were started in leased modular classrooms in the fall of 1995, and a full K-8 school opened in the fall of 1996. Dr. Margaret E. Curran was selected as principal by Father Caverly at the beginning of October of 1995. The official groundbreaking ceremony was held with Bishop Norbert M. Dorsey, C.P., on December 16, 1995.
Construction of the building was completed in July, a month before schedule. Classes began for grades K through 8 on September 1, 1996.
