St. Patrick Catholic School seeks to develop the whole child spiritually, morally, intellectually, emotionally, and physically.
Through the cooperative efforts of our pastor, Fr.
Meade, faculty, parents, and students we strive to promote an atmosphere in which our students may grow as responsible, compassionate Christians.
Through our curriculum we endeavor to help each student develop his or her intellectual potential as well as form personal values and improve physical health.
We expect an attitude of respect in students for themselves and others.
Our goal at St. Patrick Preschool is to provide a creative, relaxed, and stimulating atmosphere where young children can work, play, and discover.
We strive to develop in the young child the ability to know him or herself, and thus provide the groundwork for each child to develop a positive self-image and become a happy, well-adjusted individual.
Through a supportive, loving, and Christian environment, we hope to nurture an enthusiasm for the learning and love of God in each child.
St. Patrick School serves students in preschool through grade eight.
We are dedicated to providing quality education within a caring, Christian, family atmosphere.
