We are not Catholic but the incorporation of religion into the school day strengthens our children's faith--good Christian values build great character."

School Reviews

  • Recommended March 21, 2013 - Our kids go to St. Pat''s and we LOVE it. The school has outstanding teachers and a very loving environment. Students typically have higher than average test scores and the school prides itself on it''s outstanding academics/curriculum. Cedar Falls has great public schools too, but when kids transfer from St. Pat''s to the public school system, they always seem to be ahead of the curve. Kids at St. Pat''s all get to know each other and the older students get involved in the younger classrooms and there is a definite sense of family - I would recommend this school to anyone! - Posted by Parent
