Dear Parents and Students,
I wanted our community to be the first to know of this transition. Attached is the official notice that St. Anthony Catholic High School will be joining the Texas Christian Athletic League (T-CAL). T-CAL will serve all of our Academic, Fine Arts and Athletic needs for all of our students. We are confident that this is a positive move that will provide our students the opportunities to succeed.
We are currently planning a meeting for next week to discuss how this move will positively affect our community. This switch only effects our affiliation with the TAPPS, we still plan on competing against all the schools currently on our schedules. Thank you so much for you continued support and dedication to our great school!
Next week all students will be taking final exams, below is the Final Exam Schedule:

The 2015-2016 yearbooks are in, if you still haven't picked your up please do so. Cost is $65 and supplies are very limited.
Drive Way and Parking
Be reminded that for the safety of our students the St. A. drive is one way and there is no parking in the Circle. Please park in the visitors' lot adjacent to the Chapel or in the student lot. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Service hours are important in the development of our students. Make sure to reach out to your Religion teacher to ensure that the required 25 hours are completed in a timely manner.
If you know of any potential students to our great community please encourage them to follow the link below to learn more about St. Anthony and consider posting on your social media platforms.

In this program, selected high school juniors and seniors may earn up to 30 hours of college credit while completing the requirements for high school graduation. The program grants dual credit for courses that have counterparts at the high school level. Students are eligible for any course available to an entering University freshman. As in the case of other University students, exceptions to prerequisites are handled on an individual basis. All connection courses are taught by the University of the Incarnate Word faculty with the same syllabus, same textbook, and same rigor as any other section taught on the campus and filled with other University students.
The Brainpower Connection is a widening circle of support, influence, and collegiality established when five different institutions - their faculties and students - connect to share their brainpower. Shared vision, shared faculties, and shared facilities help break down the walls that traditionally separate high schools and universities.
