Welcome To St. Anthony of Padua School
For over 140 years, St. Anthony of Padua School has provided quality education to children of our area. We would like to share the Good News of Catholic Education with you. Our school challenges our students with a strong academic curriculum and offers students the chance to grow in their Catholic faith.
At St. Anthony our general objectives are:
• To provide a balanced program of worthwhile values, remembering that total education is the primary purpose of the school;
• To develop in all students a respect for the rights of others as individuals and groups;
• To assist our students in developing an appreciation for art, music, literature, and other areas of the fine arts;
• To assist our students in acquiring a sense of responsibility for themselves, the community in which they live, and the world community;
• To assist our students in acquiring critical thinking and problem solving skills which will enable them to meet the challenges of the future;
• To enable our students in acquiring basic skills while emphasizing the heritage, responsibilities, and the privileges of American citizenship.
