The Saint Anthony of Padua School Scholarship Gala

St. Anthony of Padua School has served economically disadvantaged children in the Bailey's Crossroads neighborhood since 1952.  


Each year the number of families who would like to enroll their children but are unable to cover the full tuition amount on their own continues to increase.   Even as we keep operating expenses as low as possible, the tuition for the coming school year for one child will be $7250. 


The Spirit of St Anthony Scholarship Fund is used to provide tuition assistance for each of these children
