"An inclusive education finds a place for all and does not select in an elitist way the beneficiaries of its efforts."        -Pope Francis

St. Anthony's provides students with mild to moderate intellectual and developmental disabilities access to an individualized, inclusive Catholic education. This gives students the opportunity to grow socially, spiritually, and academically in a Catholic environment. A primary goal for each student is to be as fully integrated as possible into the total life of the school community. 

Saint Anthony of Padua School recognizes the beauty and potential inherent in each student. In an effort to foster continued growth, the school embraces the opportunity to provide assistance and services for students with disabilities according to the resources available within/to the school. Parents/guardians are considered an integral part of the process.
