Saint Patrick School is community of faith and learning.

Saint Patrick School is community of faith and learning.

Saint Patrick School meets and exceeds National Blue Ribbon standards with the goal to graduate Catholic young men and women who possess the knowledge and skills needed in the 21st century. As the Saint Patrick School community, we begin and end our day by engaging in quiet prayer. This provides our students an opportunity for stillness in a busy world, time to focus on how God worked through them during the day, and the importance of prayer in a faith-filled life.

The success of Saint Patrick School is due to the support and efforts of our parish, our families, and our local community working collaboratively to create a respectful learning environment that supports the spiritual, academic, and emotional growth of our students.

Recognizing that student abilities and needs are varied, Saint Patrick School prides itself in meeting each student where they are on their educational journey. All students receive a significant amount of individualized attention. Differentiated learning and inclusive practices are incorporated into a rigorous academic curriculum.

The tireless work of our faculty and staff, the commitment of our parish priests, and the enthusiasm of our students makes Saint Patrick School a one of a kind place to learn and grow. 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.
