Lucia Hoerr '18 founded Backpack Buddies when she was just nine years old. Each summer she and a loyal group of volunteers raise money, buy supplies, and fill backpacks for families in need. In the summer of 2015, Backpack Buddies contributed more than 390 fully loaded backpacks to students in kindergarten to twelfth grade. This year a record 477 backpacks were given out to local families in need.
After winning the 2016 Tom Tom Festival's Crowdfunded Pitch Night, St. Anne's-Belfield School juniors Leela Ghaemmaghami and Clara Duffy have become the youngest ever participants in the University of Virginia's iLab. The experience was offered to the young women as a mentorship opportunity for their burgeoning business, Seniors Connect, which ensures local senior citizens can stay in touch with loved ones through technology education.
The 2016 - 2017 school year began on August 24 with almost 900 students enrolled across all four divisions. We are excited to welcome just over 170 new students and their families to our community. Photos from all divisions are online now.
