School of Saint Anthony

School of Saint Anthony, Quezon City (also called SSA or simply Saint Anthony ), was founded in 1982 as Saint Anthony Learning Center by spouses Dr. Enrique F. Coralejo and Mrs. Victoria A. Coralejo.[4] Guided by the teachings of its patron saint, St. Anthony Mary Claret, who founded the Congregation of Missionary Sons of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the School of Saint Anthony aims to produce students who are not only intelligent but virtuous as well. It is located in Ascencion Avenue, Lagro, Novaliches District, Quezon City, Philippines.[5]

As the institution progressed in both size and population its name was changed from Saint Anthony Learning Center to its current name, School of Saint Anthony.[6]
