BEST PRIVATE SCHOOL IN PASCO COUNTYIn August, 2010 the people of the Tampa Bay area voted St. Anthony Interparochial School "The best private school in Pasco County" for the second year in a row! We are proud to hold that title with our community.After 6 years under the early guidance of Mrs. Morse ( 1883-1889 ) followed by the 121 year presence of the Benedictine Sisters ( 1889-2010 ), St. Anthony began it's third era this fall. The change was set into motion when 11 year Principal Sr. Roberta Bailey, OSB was elected prioress of Holy Name Monastery last May. With no other local Benedictine Sisters with backgrounds in education available to step up, the school turned to the New Jersey based Franciscan Sisters of St. Elizabeth for help. The primary ministry of the Franciscan Sisters of St. Elizabeth is that of education of the youth. They work in seven countries on four continents and the order has had presence in the Diocese of St. Petersburg since 2001.Sister Alice Ottapurackal ( pronounced "otta parakel" ) who takes over as the new principal, has taught for 19 years and most recently served as assistant principal at Notre Dame Catholic School in Spring Hill. The native of India holds a bachelor's degree in elementary education and psychology from New Jersey City University and a degree in educational leadership from Barry University.Sister Alice is joined by religion and music teacher Sister Sherly Vazhappilly and their Superior, Sister Eilene Marie Woodbury, who works in the parish and is a former principal herself.St. Anthony Interparochial Catholic School in San Antonio, Florida is a 127 year old, Roman Catholic affiliated, coed school.
