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.

School Reviews

I am so happy that I enrolled my daughter at St. Anthony Catholic School after we moved from out of state. She attended for her 8th grade year and loved the school. The small class sizes helped her to quickly become part of the community. Her teachers were extremely experienced and effective--they took great care that students were learning an advanced curriculum. After transferring to public school for 9th grade, my daughter and her classmates from St. Anthony found that they were ahead of the students who attended public middle schools. If you are looking for a school where your child can flourish academically, make great friends, and have access to the latest technology and a range of extracurricular activities, then this is the place.
