“By educating the mind and the heart, the school can form people who in turn can work at changing the very structures of their society to ensure a community of Justice and Reconciliation.”
– Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
The spirit of stewardship encouraged at St. Anthony School has generated the devotion of countless hours towards community projects and volunteer work by our faculty, students and graduates.
We aim to teach the importance of public service by requiring volunteer work as part of our curriculum. This community outreach is an essential part of the SAS culture and teach compassion and selflessness both on and off campus.
Through these lessons, we cultivate a strong sense of community responsibility and educate for Service, Justice and Peace.
“We engage our students with the community at a young age and emphasize giving back so it becomes an intrinsic value throughout their growth, education, and into adulthood.”
– Father Roland Bunda
