The St. Anthony’s Catholic Parish and School is built upon the philosophy that the Catholic Faith and a receiving a good education is key for Native American youth to help break the cycle of unemployment and poverty.
Founded in 1629, the “Old Mission” was dedicated to Our Lady of Guadalupe. Established at Halona in the center of what is now the Zuni Pueblo, St. Anthony’s Catholic Mission provides quality Catholic teaching and education to the people of the Zuni Pueblo.
ST. ANTHONY’S INDIAN SCHOOL has been serving the Zuni community for nearly 100 years. The Sisters of Saint Francis of Perpetual Adoration started to run and operate the school with 43 students on September 3, 1923.
The ST. ANTHONY’S INDIAN SCHOOL is open to students of all religious persuasions offering a high quality education with a strong Catholic ethos. St. Anthony aims to successfully equip its alumni with the academic, moral and cultural ethos necessary for the 21st century.
