Why Choose St. Anthony?

St. Anthony School is fully accredited and serves students in grades PS-8. Our students excel in a safe, nurturing environment under the leadership of a faith-filled, caring and professional faculty and staff. 

Catholic faith and Gospel teachings are integrated into the curriculum. The school day begins and ends with prayer. We celebrate weekly all-school Liturgies and gather as a school family for prayer services and to honor Mary by praying the Rosary. Our students receive in-depth sacramental preparation. Outreach to the less fortunate is fostered through monthly mission recipients, and our middle school students contribute hundreds of service hours to the local community each year.



We understand that choosing the best school for your child is a big decision, which is why we encourage potential students and their families to visit us! To schedule your visit, please complete the form below and a member of our admissions team will contact you shortly.

Education Savings Accounts

An Education Savings Account (ESA) is a deposit of public funds into government-authorized savings accounts that eligible families may use to cover tuition, fees, and other qualified education expenses at accredited private schools in Iowa. Tuition assistance provided to families does not impact ESA eligibility.

Tuition Assistance 

Tuition assistance is provided to families who are unable to pay the full tuition rate due to a demonstrated financial need. However, no family is turned away for inability to pay full tuition. Providing families in need with assistance is at the very heart of our mission in Catholic education.

Catholic Tuition Organization: CTO is a charitable organization that receives voluntary cash contributions from Iowa taxpayers. The organization then allocates those funds in the form of tuition assistance to eligible families who attend a Catholic school in the Diocese of Des Moines.

Ignite Tuition Assistance Endowment: An endowment established through the Ignite Capital Campaign to complement CTO tuition assistance, which currently provides around 35% of the demonstrated need of our school families. This endowment is also supported by funds raised during the Bishop’s Celebration of Catholic Schools. Families who apply for CTO assistance will automatically be considered for Ignite Tuition Assistance.
