"Magenta. I learned what the color magenta was as an Anthony third grader in 1982 while sitting at an Apple computer. As the story goes, co-founder and head of school, Mrs. Jeanne Anthony, knew then that computers were going to be important in our daily lives. I clearly remember her walking back and forth behind us, walkie talkie in hand, as we clicked on color options to create our on-screen art.
Why is my 1982 Anthony magenta moment important to The Anthony School you know today? Because what Mrs. Jeanne envisioned years ago is still in full swing, and it works! She envisioned wrapping solid, traditional-based academics in forward thinking, arts-rich, complementary experiences to facilitate a well-rounded child. When people ask me to explain Anthony, I say it is similar to an education received at a liberal arts college but age-appropriate.
Annual fund gifts from then until now have helped make Anthony what it is today. Any size gift is a welcome, appreciated, and wisely used gift. Please join me in making a contribution today."
