A day in the life-The Spirit of St. Patrick's Catholic School!

Founded in 2004, St. Patrick’s Catholic School in Rockville, Maryland is committed to educating the whole child. The school motto, “faith, academics, and service” expresses our commitment to fostering spiritual, interpersonal, and academic growth in our children. The collaboration among parents, teachers, students, and administration demonstrates our unique calling to educate our children in a strong, faith-based community. A rigorous academic program challenges every child to meet his/her fullest potential and rise to meet the highest of expectations. Through partnership with our families, St. Patrick’s School provides challenging, real-life learning opportunities to prepare students for success in a diverse society and changing world. Collaboration extends well beyond the school day and reflects a dedicated community that works together to support the needs of all of our students. Programs to support social and emotional growth, character, faith-formation, and service learning ensure we are developing the whole child. STEM-based activities and technology are critical threads woven into the fabric of the student experience at St. Patrick’s School. Technology allows teachers to differentiate instruction and engage students in unique activities that develop their individual talents and showcase learning. St. Patrick’s School believes in the efforts of building students of outstanding character and in doing so, allows us to educate, respect, protect, and love our children. The hope for every child who graduates from St. Patrick’s is that he or she is a productive child of God, fully prepared to lead and serve in the community.
