General School Mission

"St. Anthony Catholic School seeks to cooperate with the home in the formation and education of its students. The school endeavors to develop the whole child by challenging each student to extend himself/herself fully in all capabilities. It strives to make the students aware that each person counts with God and must count before others. One of the main goals is to help the students learn to find happiness in seeking and loving Christ in their homes and in the school environment and thus attain eternal happiness in heaven.

In keeping with the teachings of the Catholic Church regarding the sanctity of human life, the school proclaims to teach a Pro-Life Ethic to its students. To fulfill its teaching responsibilities, it reaffirms that human life is a precious gift from God; that each person who receives gifts has responsibilities toward God, toward self, and toward others; and that society, through its laws and social institutions, must protect and sustain human life at every stage of its existence. These convictions grow out of the Church’s constant witness that "life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception to natural death."

In teaching the students regarding the sanctity of human life, the school follows the outline of the "Respect Life Program," as set forth each year by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops.
