Why St. Anthony?

Fostering growth in knowledge and faith.

St. Anthony students experience both academic challenges and spiritual engagement throughout each school day. Each student is encouraged to demonstrate personal initiative, engage in active learning, manage their time wisely, and embrace their God-given gifts and talents. And, finally, each student is charged with using their faith-based education to help guide their thoughts, words, and actions.

Building character through faith.

Faith is the core of our existence and is what sets us apart from the public school system. Your student’s faith spreads and expands throughout the total experience of each and every day. We are blessed to be able to offer students daily opportunities to learn more about their faith, either at weekly Mass or in daily Religion classes.

Focused on individual growth and learning.

Our comprehensive curriculum and small class sizes, provide each student a greater opportunity to shine, both academically and personally, rather than getting lost in the crowd.
