2023-2024 School Year
- Religious formation is one of the primary purposes of the Catholic School. Students are admitted to Saint Anthony of Padua School only if their parents agree to this concept and its implementation.
- No student is denied admission on the basis of sex, race, and national/ethnic origin.
- Admission and grade placement are temporary until such time as official transcripts are received from the student’s previous school.
- New students are accepted conditionally within a probation period until the educational and behavioral adjustments are evaluated.
- Age Requirements for children entering Preschool through First Grade:
- Preschool: Three (3) years old by September 1st of the entrance year and child must be toilet-trained.

Please know that our school is not supported by state equalization funds (like public schools). Our teachers are paid with tuition and fundraising moneys. The cost to educate a child in our school is $6,000.00 per year, and our school is able to meet these costs with the help of the parish, fundraising, and CTSO.
