Anna Maria College

Anna Maria College

Anna Maria College is a private, co-educational institution founded in 1946 by the Sisters of Saint Anne. With an annual enrollment of 1,500 students, the College prides itself on providing a values-based, service-focused liberal arts education. Anna Maria has grown to offer a variety of undergraduate majors, as well as many graduate and certificate programs, both on-ground and online. The small student-faculty ratio allows for a highly personalized learning experience, while the modest class and campus size allows for optimal student involvement. The College offers 13 Division III NCAA athletic programs for men and women. Anna Maria's campus is conveniently located just minutes away from Worcester, MA on 192 acres in Paxton.
