An overflowing community in Christ, sent that all may have life to the full.

Philosophy & Mission

St. Anthony of Padua School educates children in the truest and fullest sense by giving them the necessary tools of learning, and by fostering wonder for all that is genuinely true, good, and beautiful. We emphasize classical learning because we want our students to read well, speak well, and think well and ultimately because truth and beauty are good in themselves and desirable for their own sake. 

We seek to incorporate our students into the wisdom of two thousand years of Catholic thought, history, culture, and arts so that they might understand themselves and their world in the light of the truth and acquire the character in order to live happy and insightful lives in the service of God and others. 

Education in this deep and comprehensive sense extends beyond the classroom and is more than just the acquisition of skills. 

It encompasses the whole of one’s life.
