Welcome!

Welcome to the community of St. Anthony School! Here we provide an environment that is conducive to learning, and to the development of moral values and sound judgments. Since special knowledge and skills are required for the effective pursuit of justice and peace, St. Anthony School strives for excellence in our academic program. Growth in wholeness and holiness are the hallmarks of our school's educational program.

We believe education is one of the most important ways that the Church honors and fulfills its commitment to the dignity of all persons, and to the building community.

"A Foundation for Life"

A Message from the Principal

Principal Photo
On Wednesday, November 26th, Dismissal will be at 12:00pm all grades will be dismissed at that time, including PK-3 PK4 and Kindergarten classes, there is afternoon for registered students only

Catholic education is an expression of the mission entrusted by Jesus to the members of the Church He founded. Through education the Church seeks to prepare its members to proclaim the Good News and translate this Proclamation into action (Bishops' Pastoral, To Teach as Jesus Did). St. Anthony School affords each of its students the fullest and best educational ministry-message; fellowship in the life of the Holy Spirit and service to the Christian community.
Mrs. Elizabeth Carney
