We’re Better Together

At St. Anthony Elementary, we know it takes the efforts of a whole community to achieve success, and we place high value on our partnerships with each other, with our parents and with organizations within our city. Our teachers work closely with our parents to monitor a child’s progress, often recommending academic strategies to try outside the classroom for additional practice and growth. And our students build community with one another through regular teamwork, worship and service activities.

Challenging Curriculum

Our highly-skilled staff provides appropriate and challenging instruction for all levels of learning, from remediation and support to acceleration and enrichment. Our class sizes are prime for allowing teachers to carefully attend to the individual needs of each student. At St. Anthony, your child will receive Holy Family’s core curriculum, which is consistenly improved upon thanks to data-driven results from ongoing assessments.

Technology and Innovation

Individual learning is enhanced—along with skills in technological literacy—through extensive use of online programs and in-classroom technology. We have interactive white boards in every room, multiple carts full of laptops, as well as iPads and e-readers.

Professional Development School

St. Anthony houses the Clarke University Professional Development School, which provides additional adult assistance, increased potential for one-on-one work and access to the most up-to-date, best practices in the classroom.

Extracurricular Opportunities

We’re proud to have a thriving choir and drama program at St. Anthony, which allows students to begin identifying and developing their diverse interests and talents.
