St. Anthony Grade School
For more than 165 years, St. Anthony Junior-Senior High School has served the people of Maui County and Hawaii under the guidance of members of the Sacred Hearts Order, Society of Mary, Marianists, Maryknoll Sisters, and the St. Joseph Sisters of Carondelet orders.
St. Anthony High School has an excellent reputation for maintaining high academic standards. During its sesquicentennial history, more than 15,000 students have graduated from this school. Many furthered their academic pursuits by earning degrees from institutions of higher learning and have established themselves in a variety of professional careers internationally.
The people of Maui recognize the positive contributions our students have made to improve the professional, economic, cultural and moral fabric of our island society. The spirit of community service encouraged at St. Anthony’s has also generated the devotion of invaluable time to countless community projects and volunteer work by our students and graduates.
