Collaborative Learning and Teaching
St. Anthony High School is unique in its ability to create an open and collaborative climate, where students are encouraged to ask questions, actively listen and express themselves respectfully. Students are taught to observe and notice the world around them, and to consider the question, “What can I do to make a difference here?” The most successful people in life have garnered an inquisitive mind that never stops learning.
The benefit to an education at St. Anthony is that students not only work with exceptional educators, but they receive a friend and trusted mentor for life. Having an open dialogue with an advisor whose morals are cemented in Christian-Catholic faith, has proven invaluable. Students have access to helpful teachers, counselors and the campus ministries to help guide them. Teaching is just as important as learning at St. Anthony School.
Our adaptive, 21st century classrooms offer advanced tools and teaching strategies in the fields of math, science and technology. Students are taught to develop concern for global and local issues regarding culture, ecology, and the use of technology in these areas.
