Welcome – Letter from the Principal

SACHS principal with students


Welcome to St. Anthony Catholic High School, where we strive to get students to and through college. God is working with us every day as we continue to build a premier Catholic college preparatory high school in San Antonio.

I became principal of St. Anthony Catholic High School in August 2017, but my experience with this wonderful institution dates back to 1992. As a young woman, I was an active member of my church and attended summer Bible camp right here at St. Anthony. Sitting on the steps of our school, I memorized the books of the Bible and fell in love with the Letters of St. Paul that spoke much about love.

I consider it one of my greatest blessings to be the principal at a school founded in 1903 to plant seeds of faith — which is just as important today as it was more than 100 years ago.

Presently, we are hard at work tending those seeds and educating future leaders. St. Anthony recently received an “Outstanding” rating
from the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops Education Department, celebrating our Catholic identity and service to others. We also received an “Exemplary” rating for our extracurricular activities.

Our strong foundation is further supported in our current cornerstone, VISION 2024: Living the Mission. Starting now, this new initiative will guide us in our mission to nurture even stronger leaders for the future. We are committed to enhancing our college and career readiness curriculum by increasing available Advanced Placement courses, with the goal of bolstering test scores and putting more full scholarship opportunities within reach. We will also upgrade the access to technology for our students to prepare them to meet and exceed 21st century expectations in college and in life.

Our history rooted in faith, our present work educating excellent young men and women, and our future as an even more exceptional school, simply prove that we are the Catholic high school to attend. Our strong and active community engages others with a sense of belonging. Our St. Anthony family lives out our Catholic faith through service and sharing the love of God.

We hope you will keep us in prayer and make plans to visit and enroll at St. Anthony Catholic High School! We look forward to welcoming our future Yellow Jackets.

May your life be blessed!
