Academic Excellence and

Solid Faith Foundations

Contribute to the St. Anthony School Renovation Fund

 Our Mission:

 Saint Anthony Catholic School, founded in 1884, provides a Christ-centered, comprehensive and challenging academic program grounded in Catholic Values within a caring community.

 We strive to educate our students to become critical thinkers and problem solving leaders with the technological skills to meet the challenges of the future.

Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we foster the spiritual, intellectual, emotional social, and physical growth of our students while respecting and supporting individual abilities.


CareFest 2016

All 47 Catholic schools and centers around the diocese are joining forces with over 5,000 volunteers across the Bay area through CareFest 2016 the week of September 17 through 24.  Saint Anthony Catholic School is:

·         Honoring fire fighters
·         Honoring police officers
·         Donating personal grooming supplies for the migrant community at St. Rita Church
·         Donating supplies for the baby pantry at St. Joseph Church in Zephyrhills
·         Donating hope kits for children 3 – 5 to Sunrise Shelter
·         Writing letters and putting together prayer bags for the education majors at St. Leo, thanking them for their chosen vocation and service to others by teaching

This project incorporates the social justice tenets of the church: 

  1. Life and Dignity of the Human Person
  2. Rights and Responsibilities
  3. Option for the Poor and Vulnerable
  4. Care for God's Creation
Prayers for our efforts are always needed and appreciated
