Welcome to St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School! We invite you to explore our Preschool and K-8, faith-based academic community and learn about our dedicated instructors and our fantastic students on this website. We are a small peaceful school that focuses on developing the whole child through cognitive, physical, social, and spiritual instruction. Our curriculum is provided by the Diocese of Tucson, is fully aligned to Arizona Academic Standards, and includes Catholic instruction as well as Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, Physical Education, Computers, and the Fine Arts. Our parents are very involved in our school as volunteers and active participants in their children's academic and religious education. Please feel free to contact the school so that we can arrange a visit.
