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.

A FIRST! For the First time in St. Anthony history, we now have a FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition) team. We are team #5625. Season Kick off and challenge release will be in January on Oahu with the tournament taking place March 25-28 in Honolulu. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a Global competition based in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) where students design, build and program 5-foot tall robots to play a cooperative game. Students have access to more than $20 MILLION dollars in scholarships to colleges in the USA.
We will be looking for local industrial mentors and sponsors to help make this a wonderful program. If your company sponsors STEM or Robotics activities we would like to hear from you, OR if you have or work for a local business that deals with Mechanical design, electrical design, machining, CAD, pneumatics, manufacturing, powder coating, marketing, fundraising or safety, WE COULD USE YOU.
