Welcome to the website of Saint Anselm Catholic School located in northeast Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Our school is part of the mission of Saint Anselm Parish and of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. It has a rich history of serving families who appreciate a Catholic school education for their children. Our present enrollment is 407 students in grades Prekindergarten to eight. We have a dedicated staff of 23 lay teachers whose mission is to bring the Gospel message of Jesus Christ to all students and their parents. In addition to the traditional curriculum areas, we have teachers who specialize in Art, Music, Technology, Physical Education and Library Science. Our school provides an after school program for those parents who need additional care and supervision for their children after school hours. Please review the pages contained in our website. If you need additional information, we would be happy to speak with you at 215-632-1133. Thank you for visiting our website.
