A Catholic School. A Classical Approach.
On Friday, November 16, the students of the Academy performed for a small group of enchanted supporters. The high school students recited the Prologue from Canterbury Tales, both in Old English and in English. The 4-6th graders wore caps as they recited "The Captain's Daughter" while the 7-8th grade class took on "Beowulf" in Old English! For the younger classes, a play was afoot -- The Story of Squanto.

Please help us "continue Saving" St. Anthony Academy.
In the spring the school launched a bold campaign to save our school.
Through the generous help of many donors from near and far, we were able to open our doors again for our 16th year.
Our full campaign goal fell short, however, and our Go Fund Me raised 41% of its goal; hence we are rolling that campaign into our holiday appeal to ensure
the school's long-term prosperity.
Every contribution goes a long way for our students!
A few quick facts:
Every year, the students of the Academy begin the school year by choosing a saint to befriend. For the next 6 weeks, they work on researching the life of their saint, making a poster representing their life, writing a report and designing a costume. When the day of the All Saints' Day party arrives, the students dress up as their saints, pray the rosary and the litany of the Saints, enjoy a pizza lunch, play saint-centered games, win prizes, and battle to break a candy-filled pinata. What a wonderful celebration!
St. Anthony Academy is very proud to present our student-made rosaries!
As with every small school, fundraising is an important part of our academic year, and finding interesting and inspiring ways to raise money is a constant challenge. Our fundraising coordinator, Lindy Rackiewicz, devised a wonderful project for the students, which combines creativity and spirituality while still serving as a tool to help the school.
