Antonian retains many of the innovative practices attributed to St. John Baptiste De La Salle, including the integration of religious instruction with academic subjects, well-prepared teachers with a sense of vocation and mission, and the involvement of parents. Originally a school for boys, Antonian transitioned to being a co-educational school in 1989.
Preparing students academically, socially, and emotionally for higher education and life demands an environment reflective of the real world. The real world is comprised of men and women, and Antonian graduates are prepared to interact and work with members of the opposite sex both in college and classrooms and in the workplace. This Antonian dynamic empowers students to grow as both individuals and members of the community.
