Who are we?

We are a Christ-centered, K-6 school rooted in Catholic faith, tradition, and Gospel values. We are committed to encouraging each person’s relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are dedicated to educating each child both intellectually and spiritually; challenging all students to develop their God-given gifts. 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. 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.

  • 1:14 student-teacher ratio

  • Students attend weekly Mass over at St. Anthony's Parish and have weekly religion class 

  • Rich history dating back to 1907

  • Financial aid and scholarship opportunities available

We offer a robust academic program focused on differentiated instruction and the utilization of research-based teaching methods. Our program actively engages students in their learning process in order to foster enduring understandings for our young scholars. 


At Cardinal Lacroix Academy, we believe that learning extends far beyond the classroom. Our After Care Program is offered daily from 2:15pm to 5:30pm. Each afternoon is structured with a balance of play and dedicated study time, to cultivate young minds to the fullest extent.
