Welcome to St. Athanasius School

Saint Athanasius School exists for the purpose of spreading the Good News of Christ according to Catholic teaching.  Our school is Catholic in its philosophy, its teachings, and its practice of the Catholic faith.  Our acceptance of children from other religions, with the hope of evangelization, is an aspect of our Catholicity.  We emphasize Catholic Christian formation that can not be done in the public schools.

Our Mission

Our school’s mission is to bring the Good News of salvation to our students and families by teaching as Jesus did and instilling Catholic Christian values in our students.  The school is an extension of the Church, a place where young people experience its teachings and traditions.  They are encouraged to embrace a life of faith through prayer, liturgy, and example.
 

Who We Serve

Our school admits students for grades Pre-K through 8.  The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, its admission policy, or in any school-administered program.

 

 

Program of Study

St. Athanasius School follows the guidelines issued by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. These guidelines address the intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of our students. We stress the development and extension of basic skills in all areas of curriculum while stimulating and encouraging creativity.
