Black History Month is upon us and we reflect on the African-American pioneers who have helped shape American history. Paul Robeson and Wynona Lipman are two of many leaders from New Jersey who have paved the way and fought for equal and equitable rights. We pay homage to the work of all African Americans who faught, stood and shattered glass ceilings for all Americans. This month we also celebrate Catholic Schools Week with a celebration of mass and students engaged in crafting informative essays highlighting, "Why I love my school..." Click on the News banner on the main webpage to read some of the responses from our students.
Our student athletes involved in boys and girls basketball are enjoying a very competitive season and our track team is competing with great success and even breaking school records . I am so proud of our students who wear marroon and gold and repesent the Friar Family of St. Anthony High School with pride and distinction.
Currently 92% of all of our graduating seniors have been accepting into colleges and universities and students have already been offered almost $1.8 million dollars in grants and scholarships. Congratulations to the class of 2017!
This month we also continue reflect on the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. whose legacy of civil rights and fight for social justice is still a current aim for our nation. We ask that God continue to bless St. Anthony High School as the work to ensure students enter post-secondary institutions are all part of his vision and dream.
