St Anthony Catholic School transitioned out of the Notre Dame Ace Academies consortium and into the West Deanery Unified Catholic Schools (WDUCS) consortium, both archdiocesan agencies, to better addresses the academic preparedness of students, most of whom will go on to Cardinal Ritter High School in the WDUCS consortium. The mission, clientele, and need at St Anthony remain the same.
