New Family Application

Thank you for your interest in St. Anthony of Padua School. Our school has been in existence since the 1950s and is under the authority of the Catholic Independent Schools of the Vancouver Archdiocese (CISVA). The school is operated by the Parish Education Committee, a mostly elected group of parishioners and parents of St. Anthony of Padua Parish. We are a Class 1 Independent school following the curriculum set by the Ministry of Education of the Province of British Columbia. In addition, we integrate the Catholic Faith into our daily school life with regular prayer and religious instruction. As a Catholic school, we consider parents as the primary educators and expect and value parents' active involvement in the life of the school. We strive to offer the highest quality of education.
