St. Anthony of Padua Grade School Registration For 2017-2018 School Year now open!

St. Anthony of Padua Grade School continues to innovate!  We were the first elementary school in the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington to adopt a single-rate tuition plan.  This approach takes respects your lifestyle and family needs in today’s busy world.  In this plan, all families pay the same rate for tuition.  Families that opt to register as parishioners at St. Anthony of Padua parish and contribute to the parish offertory using the offertory envelopes available will receive a credit towards their tuition of 25% of the total offertory contribution for the fiscal year.  This additional benefit is purely an optional program, if families wish to participate.With the single-rate tuition, all school families are asked to volunteer 15 hours at the annual St. Anthony’s Italian Festival.  The Festival, the primary fundraiser for the school, helps to offset tuition fees for all students.  We also limit other requests for additional fundraising programs, as we know your time is tight—and we respect that, as well as your budget!  St. Anthony’s offers financial aid opportunities as well.  Our motto is that we aim to offer a Catholic education to all those who desire it.

We continue the groundbreaking practice of assigning ALL Middle School/Junior High students a dedicated iPad at NO COST for–another FIRST in the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington!  With an intentional, integrated curriculum tied to the tablet, our students will be uniquely prepared for the challenges of high school & beyond!

We will continue to welcome students of all backgrounds by offering a full-time Special Education teacher & Counselor, which allow the school to offer a full range of individualized services to students with a variety of learning needs.

 

NEW FOR 2017-2018: Plans are underway to transform our architecturally striking Library into a “classroom of the 21st century”–a state-of-the-art multimedia-enabled dynamic learning space engaging advanced technology and proven innovative approaches to foster an inclusive and engaging learning environment.

 

There’s still time to enroll for the 2017-2018 academic year!  St. Anthony’s currently has openings available for pre-K (3 & 4 year olds) through 8th grade.  For more info or to schedule a tour of the school—at your convenience–please contact the school at 302.421.3743 or via email: bshields@stanthonynet.org
