St. Anthony Middle School, Grades 6-8
St. Anthony Middle School (SAMS) is a school committed to providing students with authentic learning experiences in a caring environment. We strive to help students begin to grow their curiosities and creativity while strengthening their critical thinking, communication and problem solving skills. SAMS provides a strong academic background while still offering students a variety of elective courses. Enhanced learning opportunities, extracurricular activities and clubs are available to St. Anthony Middle School students and include athletics, speech, student council, academic teams and drama.
St. Anthony Village High School, Grades 9-12
St. Anthony Village High School will provide a demanding academic experience for students to prepare them for their future. Students in ninth grade use a seven-period daily schedule to accommodate the academic requirements while students in grades ten through twelve operate under a six period day. Tenth, eleventh and twelfth grade students utilize the later start time each morning (8:35 a.m.) for quiet study, meetings with individual teachers, breakfast or participation in clubs.
As the recipient of numerous recognitions from the State of Minnesota, Newsweek magazine and US News and World Report, St. Anthony Village High School students score very well on standardized assessments and college entrance exams. Extracurricular activities include athletics, music, drama, speech, Student Council and the National Honor Society.
