Mission Statement

The mission of St. Anthony Catholic Parish School is to inspire our students to follow Christ’s example.


The St. Anthony School community adopts a philosophy rooted in Catholic faith, love, and respect. We acknowledge that our students vary in academic ability, needs and backgrounds, and are uniquely gifted. We believe that the parents are the primary educators of their children, and that the teachers facilitate the learning process for all students.

The administration, teachers, and staff at St. Anthony School are committed to helping parents in the holistic development of each student, and strive to instill responsibility for words and actions.

In the spirit of the Gospel, St. Anthony School serves culturally diverse children from surrounding communities. We reach out to the wider community of the world, trusting in Christ who is our inspiration, teacher, and reason for being.
