St. Anthony of Padua School

In 1922 St. Anthony of Padua School in Fargo opened with 157 pupils in grades 1-8. Enrollment continued to increase and a new addition was opened in 1928. I don't have a picture of the school.

In 1998 St. Anthony's closed and students were moved to Sullivan Middle School, located at the site of the former Interstate Business College in south Fargo at 2720 32nd Ave. SW. The number of students had outgrown the former site. This Sullivan Middle School was moved to the new Fargo Catholic Schools education complex at 5600 25th Street So. that combined the school and Shanley High School. It opened there in the fall 2002.

The St. Anthony parish was started first as a "chapel of ease" or mission for the cathedral parish, but was incorporated December 30, 1917 and Fr. Vincent J. Ryan, later the Bishop of Bismarck, was appointed its first pastor.
