Giving to Foster Growth

Due to the rising cost of providing a quality Catholic education, The St. Anthony Schools Annual Fund was founded as a concentrated effort toward supporting our schools’ operating budget, funding ongoing improvements, and containing tuition costs for families.

  • Launched an updated website at stanthony.com for improved navigation and increased security.
