"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 2019-2020 Anthony 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."
