Sierra BowerSan Antonio – October 9, 2023 – St. Anthony Catholic High School (SACHS) is set to kickoff its 2024-25 enrollment drive with an open house on Thursday, October 26, 2023, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the historical high school located at 3200 McCullough Avenue. The open house is a chance for prospective students and parents to tour the school, meet the teachers and administrators and find out more about the outstanding education and opportunities available at St. Anthony. This includes the Brainpower Connection which is a collection of K-12 schools who partner with the University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) to create a pathway to a college education.

“Open House is a great way for prospective students and their families to experience our community firsthand,” says SACHS Dean of Student Affairs, Sharon Longoria. “Our dedication to a holistic education, rooted in Catholic values, extends far beyond academics. We encourage you to explore what it means to be a St. Anthony Catholic High School Yellow Jacket and a member of the Brainpower Connection. Our teachers, coaches, students and parents are excited to share their stories and invite you to become part of the Yellow Jacket family.”

That includes students like Sierra Bower, a 17-year-old SACHS Senior who is not only the Senior Class President, she is the varsity captain of the volleyball team and the bowling team, she is a Young Oblate, in the theatre club, the math club, the Health Professions club and a member of the National Honor Society. Sierra says she always feels supported at St. Anthony and encourages all new students to take advantage of everything SACHS has to offer.

“St. Anthony has given me so many amazing opportunities like dual credit courses, athletics and increasing my faith,” says Sierra. “I do all my work here at St. Anthony knowing I have God with me. Participating in dual credit at the University of the Incarnate Word has been one of the best decisions I have made. I would recommend every student who has this opportunity take it because it has prepared me for college next year and I will be entering college as a sophomore. St. Anthony is not just a school, it is a family that will always be a part of my life. To any student, my advice is to find your family and work hard to achieve your goals. Anything is possible when you have a support system and a hardworking attitude. St. Anthony is my support system and it can be yours too.”
