Dear Parents, Guardians, Students, and Friends
We are the caretakers of a school community that uplifts and transforms its members. At St. Vincent Pallotti we inspire one another. We change one another. We see God’s spirit in all.
The educational experience at St. Vincent Pallotti grows and shapes ideas, attitudes, efforts, and even kindness. We tell of the unique and God-given spirit we see in each girl and boy as they express their thoughts, their art, their faith, their hopes.
We teach more than information and academic subjects. We teach how to relate. We work to see and name more clearly the good in each student. We teach to love and to forgive in the context of daily life in Catholic school community.
At St. Vincent Pallotti Catholic School students enjoy a greater possibility to become their best. They can discover that each life has a reason. Each one can consider through the weeks and months of school what he/she has been born to do. Reflecting, interwoven with study of math, science, literature, language, history, religion, music, art, physical education, opens wide the doorway to each student’s true self. Join us in this inspirational and life-changing pursuit.

History of Saint Vincent Pallotti Catholic School
In 1923, a Pallotine priest, Peter Schroeder, founded Saint Anthony’s mission church. After that, another Pallotine priest, Father Joseph DeMaria, under Father Schroeder’s direction, built the Saint Anthony of Padua School building.
In 1949, a new high school building was constructed just south of the Pallotti property and the high school moved. This building has served as the site for Pius XI High School since then.
At this point, Father DeMaria converted the building to what was then known as Saint Anthony of Padua Parish School to teach Kindergarten through Eighth grades.
Saint Anthony’s endured for over 40 years, when in 1998, a merger with Holy Cross Parish created what is now known as Saint Vincent Pallotti Catholic School.
