High School Placement Test:
Testing at your child's middle school:
Area Catholic grade schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio will administer the High School Placement Test (HSPT) during the school day on December 11th on their own campuses. This test is for 8th grade students only.

Advanced registration to take the HSPT is strongly encouraged. During COVID-19, protocols have been to limit large gatherings, if at all possible. This is a reasonable solution for your student to test in very safe and familiar surroundings.

If your student is unable to attend the Catholic grade school testing date on December 11th, please register for a high school testing session on December 12th. Registration for each test date will close at 11:59 p.m. (CST) on the close dates listed below. To register after the deadline, please call the Admissions Office of your preferred testing site. 

Testing at Antonian:
Students who are not presently attending a Catholic grade school within the Archdiocese of San Antonio will test on Antonian's campus on Saturday, December 12th. Please click the following link to register.
Freshmen NWEA Testing
An email was sent earlier this morning to freshman parents regarding the information for NWEA testing. We know that some students still attend school remotely, while others attend in-person.

For the purposes of this testing, it is best that students who typically attend in-person do so on that day. To best plan for the test administration, we need to identify those students who will participate remotely. If your child will do so, please complete the form at the following link.
Reminder | Mid Quarter Grade Review
Please remember that we are about halfway through the 2nd quarter. Please check the Ascender grade portal to see the most current grades and encourage your students to reach out to their teachers if there is a need.
Academic Support Fridays
Because we have an alternate schedule this year, our Friday enrichment days allow time to help students who would benefit from extra tutoring and support in their courses. During that time, students are able to check in with their teachers to get tutoring or simply be on campus so that they can have quiet time to study and/or catch up on school work. These sessions are open for all students, but are mandatory for students failing three or more classes. 



What is our criteria in inviting students?
  • Students that are failing three or more classes will be required to attend tutoring on Fridays. 
  • Any other student can attend if they wish. 
What if the student does not attend mandatory tutoring?
  • If a student is asked to attend a mandatory Friday session and cannot attend, they will need to make arrangements with their teachers and Ms. Ramon.
  • Further consequences will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
How will the supporting team become involved?
  • A Student Success Mentor will become involved when students are failing more than 3 classes. They will meet with the student and coordinate student/teacher conversations during Academic Support Fridays. 
How are the teachers a part of the process?
  • Teachers should communicate with any student who is struggling with an outreach to help. 
  • Grades are current and are updated each week
  • Conversation/email when grade falls below a 65 
  • Phone call to parents at weeks 4 and 7 if grades are not at passing
  • Make themselves available for tutoring/conference before/after school and on Fridays from 1 to 4 pm
When do the invitations go out to the students in need of academic support?
  • Wednesday afternoons
December 1st College Deadlines Coming Soon!
Parents,

This is a reminder that the final deadline for many high-profile universities, such as Texas A&M, University of Texas, and SMU, among others, to receive admission documents is December 1st. 

Antonian is closed for Thanksgiving break (November 22nd - November 28th), the week before the deadline. The last day students can request materials from the Antonian Counseling Department and be guaranteed on-time delivery will be Wednesday, November 18th.  

Some schools do not accept electronic submissions and will require we send materials through the U.S. Postal Service. This will add days to the actual receipt date and may result in missed admission deadlines.  

Please encourage your student to submit their requests through their Naviance account by November 18th.
Let's play B-I-N-G-O!

  • Bingo Proceeds:  Antonian holds a bingo license at Golden Bingo on Bandera Road. Proceeds from our license helps to fund our internal financial assistance.

2020-2021 Tuition Past Due Balances

  • Past Due Balances and Missed Payments: Tuition is due on the 5th of every month, unless other arrangements have been made. Past due balances and missed payments have an impact on the cash resources used to meet our financial obligations. It is Antonian's policy that a past due balance cannot be carried more than 60 days and missed or unsuccessful payments are subject to late or return fees that can not be waived, so please plan accordingly. Again, if you have experienced or are experiencing a financial hardship please work directly with our Business Office staff as soon as possible.

Faculty Spotlight: Father Brian Garcia
One of our missions at Antonian is to build a well rounded student. As a Catholic school, we believe that the holistic formation of our students includes their faith and spiritual growth. During this season of thanks, we take a moment to reflect on our personal journeys and community and celebrate in our faith.

Pre-COVID, our community would gather for weekly Mass in the auditorium. Due to the recent pandemic, we had to alter the way we celebrate our Mass, but not our overall goal.

We look forward to our time with one another as we celebrate the word of Christ and it is even more special as we have Father Brian leading us in prayer.

An Antonian alumnus, Father Brian will be celebrating his 4th Ordination Anniversary on Thursday, November 19, 2020. Please pray for him as he continues to pray for us. We wish him many blessings and love as he continues his mission of Christ.
