The Antonius School District was established in May 1925 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NW22-5-14W in the Rural Municipality of Argyle. The district was dissolved in 1960 and its area was added to the Baldur Consolidated School District. It eventually became part of the Tiger Hills School Division. As of the 1980s, the former school building was being used as a garage at SE3-6-14W.
