100 YEAR HISTORY
Educational legacy dating back to 1904
A Christ-centered Pre-K through Grade 6 school rooted in Catholic faith, tradition, and Gospel values
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 of 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.
FROM OUR PARENTS
“We have been a Cardinal Lacroix Academy family for 3 years. We love the teachers, staff, and administrators. We are so thankful to them for helping us raise our daughter in a faith-based community, teaching her to love and serve the Lord. Weekly Mass at St. Anthony’s with Father Richard has been wonderful, he makes the messages relatable and engages the kids. The school is great! CLA is the place where we know our daughter is safe, cared for, and has a strong academic foundation."
