Mission, Philosophy and SLEs

Our Mission

St. Anthony lays the crucial foundation for faith, school connectedness and academic excellence from kindergarten through 8th grade. We emphasize education of the whole child through faith development, service learning, academic preparedness, character education, athletics and the arts. Our dedicated staff builds this foundation for every student, Preschool through 8th grade.

 

Connecting students to school is important at all grade levels and especially leading up to the adolescent years. Reports suggest that engagement drops as students age because older students feel less cared for by adults and see less value in their work. At St. Anthony, teachers and staff demonstrate care for student learning as well as students as individuals, knowing each by name and need.

St. Anthony Catholic School is a diverse community that promotes the dignity and respect of all people in the teachings of the Catholic Church and prepares students to be faith-filled individuals, responsible citizens and lifelong learners.

Our goal is to bring advanced 21st century learning to all students across all socio economic and ethnic demographics.
