St. Anthony Catholic School


St. Anthony offers so much more than a common core aligned curriculum. Check out these five reasons to explore
St. Anthony for your child:

FAITH: Christ is the "principal" of St. Anthony. Learning the Catholic faith and respecting one other is reinforced every day.
COMMUNITY: Our dedicated teachers give each child individualized attention and welcome each family into a warm,
supportive community. This sense of belonging helps students feel more secure when circumstances are beyond their control, allowing them to focus on their education.
PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION: Whether it’s in person or from a distance, our schools provide a caring, creative and quality learning environment personalized for each student. We challenge students to aim higher academically, spiritually and personally.
VALUES: We teach love, care and concern for others as a part of our curriculum. Students in all grades have the opportunity to participate in community service and mission projects. Values of respect, discipline, diligence and compassion are instilled
in all students.
ACCESSIBLE: We offer tuition assistance to help families afford tuition, including a Welcome Tuition Grant for public-school transfer students.

Hello St. Anthony families!!  The staff and I are excited and incredibly blessed to get to work at St. Anthony, and to have the opportunity to share and teach about our faith within all of the curricular areas. We greatly appreciate the support from our SAS families to our school programs and teachers. We also value the partnership in the education of your children. Parents are the primary educators who provide guidance and examples of being faithful Christians. At SAS we want to know and build on the individuality of each child and help them to grow in their knowledge and in their faith so they can become responsible, respectful and independent members of the community and Church. Thank you for choosing St. Anthony School! 

Many blessings, Ms. Jennifer Raes
