It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to Saint Anthony Parish School. For over one hundred years, our school has been faithfully and successfully educating students in the Catholic education tradition. What has allowed for this longevity and success can be found in the eloquent words of Saint Pope John Paul II. 

“It is more than a job, for it is rooted in our deepest convictions and values. To be intimately concerned in the development of a young person, of hundreds of young people, is a highly responsible task. As teachers, you kindle in your students a thirst for truth and wisdom. You spark off in them a desire for beauty. You introduce them to their cultural heritage. You help them to discover the treasures of other cultures and peoples. What an awesome responsibility and privilege is yours in the teaching profession.” 

– Pope John Paul II

Saint Anthony Parish School has been blessed with an amazing community of teachers, students, parents, and priests, who have at their core the conviction that human growth in Christ is vital to the development of students. At St. Anthony Parish School, education and excellence take on a persona which is animated with humility, empathy, understanding, gratitude, and learning. This is St. Anthony Parish School. 

It is in the same spirit of humility that I welcome you to St. Anthony Parish School.
