St. Anthony Catholic High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school located in the Monte Vista Historic District in Midtown San Antonio, Texas, United States.[3][4] It is located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Antonio.

History[edit]

St. Anthony Catholic High School was founded in 1903 by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate as a junior seminary. In 1995, the University of the Incarnate Word assumed management of St. Anthony and formed St. Anthony Catholic High School for boys; from this point on, the school would no longer remain a seminary.[citation needed] In 2002 the school announced that it would become coeducational in the 2003-2004 school year.[5] The school began accepting applications from girls in 2003.[6]

St. Anthony Catholic High School focuses on an integrated curriculum of academics, athletics, Christian services, community activities and spirituality, with the goal of preparing graduates for a life of Christian service.

St. Anthony Catholic High School offers a boarding program for students in grades 9-12. Ninety percent of boarding students are foreign students from countries such as China, Taiwan, Korea, Spain, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Japan and Canada, while the remaining ten percent of boarders are non-San Antonio residents.[7]

Accreditation and membership[edit]

St. Anthony Catholic High School is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), Texas Association of Non-Public Schools (TANS) and is a member of the College Board, Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS), the Association of Boarding Schools (TABS), National Catholic Educators Association (NCEA) and the Texas Catholic Conference Education Department (TCCED). [8]
