Although we don't live nearby, St. Anthony had everything we were looking for when it came to our children's education: a wonderful community of families, an engaging and challenging curriculum, and a faith-based education that reinforces a common set of values and focuses on character development. The variety of extracurricular and developmental programs at St. Anthony helps my kids broaden their learning opportunities. A+!

My wife and I, with our 4 kids (ages 1, 4, 8, and 10) live near the school in Monte Vista. Our kids have been attending St. Anthony Catholic School for the past 5 years, and we couldn't be any happier. It is one of the best decisions we have ever made for our family. The teachers are extremely nice and caring, and have a good academic focus balanced with character-building and religious education. With such a small class and grade size, the parents get to know each other very well. This has resulted in life-long friendships and a tremendous amount of support. Also, the administration and principal have been making continuous upgrades and improvements every year, and it really shows. As professionals, my wife and I truly value educational excellence. And as a religious family, we value a faith-based environment that helps build the character and confidence in our children in a way we feel is appropriate. While this school is not for everyone, it is definitely perfect for us. When my 10-year-old daughter gets together with her friends to play, we catch them reenacting parts of the bible for fun. I see my son bringing books to restaurants for entertainment, instead of an iPad. My 4-year-old is correctly adding 96 + 12. And in sports, we connect and bond with the rest of the families supporting each other and our wonderful school. Again, we couldn't be happier with St. Anthony Catholic School.

My son, stepsons, niece and nephew have all attended this school. It is absolutely amazing. The teachers genuinely care about your children and they become like family. The parent-teacher community here is fabulous and always gets everyone involved. Even after moving out of the area I commute to this school and know many parents that travel from all sides of town to come here. Best choice ever!

From the moment we toured St. Anthony Catholic School, we knew our family belonged there. Caring, compassionate, professional, and attentive are just some of the characteristics that describe the faculty and staff at St. A. Our son looks forward to going to school everyday and enjoys everyone there. I can't say enough about the community. They automatically became our family short after we enrolled. We are extremely proud of how much our son has learned. Excellent curriculum and faith filled environment.
