Building Our Community

Cardinal Lacroix Academy was established in 2018 through the unification of St. Anthony of Padua and St. Casimir schools. Once serving the French Canadian and Polish immigrant populations of their time, both St. Casimir and St. Anthony schools have enjoyed a richly diverse student body. The school occupies the building that once housed St. Anthony of Padua School. The Name was chosen in honor of Cardinal Gérald Lacroix, a 1970 Graduate from Saint Anthony’s.

Cardinal Lacroix Academy seeks to educate students of all faiths and backgrounds in an environment that celebrates the diversity of its community. The school is committed to serving the students and families in the heart of Manchester and its surrounding towns.

“It is time to renew and reinvigorate these schools, to bring them together, building on their strong past, yet creating something new- a new school that will exemplify the fullness of a Catholic education, always centered on Jesus, for many years to come. This new name gives us a tangible representation of this new hope and new future!” Bishop Peter A. Libasci
