Academic Excellence

75 years of rigorous, classical education


Mathematics is taught at St. Anselm's in the traditional way, building strong foundations in Algebra, Geometry, and Calculus which give our students the tools needed to make predictive analyses of their world.

Department Overview

Every student has math class every day, and all students take an Advanced Placement Mathematics course their senior year with ninety-five percent taking AP Calculus. Technology is implemented to augment, but not replace, the classical formalism of Mathematics.
