School Notes:

  • St. Anthony Catholic School is an integral part of the Saint Anthony Parish Community, which embraces the values and traditions of the Catholic faith.  We believe that children learn best when they are fully involved in learning activities.  Through our educational programs and teaching methods, we strive to enhance positive development in each student. We teach basic skills and from this solid foundation build academic excellence. We foster critical thinking and the self-direction necessary for a child to become an active and positive contributor to society. St. Anthony Catholic School recognizes the uniqueness of each child, and in partnership with parents, seeks to provide an atmosphere where students develop a wholesome self-image and are motivated to reach their full potential.
