About Us

Annunciation Catholic School, established in 1914, is a Catholic, co-educational elementary school that takes great pride in its long history of strong academics and service to the community of Clifton, and greater Cincinnati. Our academic programs blend together with our Catholic identity & values to help us attain our goal of developing the whole child - mind, body, and spirit.

Annunciation is proud to serve students in grades kindergarten through grade 4 for the 2022-2023 school year. We continue to embrace the cultural diversity for which we have become known. Along with that rich diversity our small class sizes make for dynamic teacher/student relationships in which every child receives the attention needed to succeed. Passionate Faculty, strong relationships, challenging academics, and a focus on the whole person... Now that sounds like the Tradition of Catholic Education!
