The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate of the Southern United States Province founded St. Anthony Junior Seminary in 1903. Still, it was not until September 1905 that the “New Apostolic High School” opened its doors with 22 students. The school was founded originally as a Junior Seminary for the formation of young men for the priesthood, thus it came to be known as St. Anthony High School Seminary.

St. Anthony was founded on many rich traditions, with two of the most cherished elements being spirituality and community while providing a quality education for an all-boys high school. On July 1, 1995, the University of the Incarnate Word assumed management of St. Anthony. Under its new administration and new name, St. Anthony Catholic High School was provided with greater opportunities and horizons to expand its already rich traditions of spirituality, community, and academics. The year 2003 brought even more changes to St. Anthony, as for the first time, St. Anthony began to accept young women.
