Saint Patrick Catholic High School is experiencing unprecedented growth, marked academic and extracurricular achievement, and a purposeful dedication to forming intentional disciples. Our learning environment, steeped in our Catholic faith, provides a sanctuary for our students to reach their highest potential.

Founded in 2007, the mission of Saint Patrick Catholic High School is to educate scholars, train disciples, and support champions. With the merging of two rival schools and a new location that stakeholders perceived to be distant, increasing enrollment has been a challenge. By providing an excellent experience for our students and their families, emphasizing marketing and public relations, offering and funding a free transportation service, and fostering a strong relationship with our supporting parishes and partner elementary schools, we have been able to change the trend of declining enrollment and create a positive school culture.

Recently, Saint Patrick Catholic High School has implemented a one-to-one laptop initiative for the high school curriculum wherein all courses are built on a digital learning environment; students are able to access resources, submit assignments, receive feedback from instructors, and collaborate with peers through a laptop and digital learning environment provided by the school.

The tireless work of our faculty and staff, the commitment of our students, and the support of our families and other stakeholders is what makes Saint Patrick Catholic High School truly great. We continue to have a strong vision for the future, look for ways to improve in all we do, and consistently work toward the pursuit of excellence.
