Welcome to St. Anthony School Programs, a Catholic-based inclusive educational environment for children ages 5-21 with Down Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder and other Intellectual Disabilities. For over 60 years, St. Anthony School Programs has helped both Catholic and non-Catholic students with intellectual disabilities live their lives to the fullest academically, socially, vocationally and spiritually.
St. Anthony School Programs provides students with a unique inclusive educational program. St. Anthony's works with parents to determine each child's level of inclusion and special resource room support gives our students every opportunity to learn in a safe and loving environment so that they may grow and become active and contributing members of society.
Saint Anthony School Programs forms an integral part of the educational ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh. Rooted in the Gospel, St. Anthony School Programs provides moral and spiritual formation, an academic course of studies and vocational training for students aged 5 to 21 with intellectual disabilities. The program seeks to maximize the individual student's potential for academic learning, to foster self-respect and confidence and to develop competence in employment and living skills. In pursuit of this mission, St. Anthony School Programs promotes the concept of inclusive education within the Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Pittsburgh.
