Discover Our Past
Antonian was officially dedicated on October 11, 1964. The school was founded by the De La Salle Christian Brothers with the support of the pastors from Blessed Sacrament, Holy Spirit, Our Lady of Grace, St. Ann, St. Gregory, St. John, St. Luke, St. Mary Magdalene, St. Paul, St. Peter, St. Pius, and St. Thomas More parishes.
In 1971, the Christian Brothers found they could no longer staff the school because of their previous commitments to other Christian Brothers schools, so Antonian became an Archdiocesan school. Originally a school for boys, Antonian transitioned to being a co-educational school beginning with the 1989-1990 school year.
