About St. Anthony Catholic School
On Sept. 16, 1926, St. Anthony Catholic School opened its doors with
64 students and four teaching Dominican nuns to become the first
Catholic school in Broward County. This historic school now has over 400
students in grades pre-kindergarten through eight. The school is located
in one of Fort Lauderdale's historic boom-time neighborhoods, Victoria Park.

building (now the Rose Miniaci Fine Arts Center), a 1940 gymnasium, designed by
Fort Lauderdale environmental architect Robert Hansen, and 1950s era school

was designated a landmark by the National Register of Historical Places.
