Saint Patrick`s is a great school. They are very involved with their students and my child`s academics have significantly improved since he started attending here. I couldn`t be more happier with the academics. They also have many ways to keep parents involved and I would recommend this school to any parent

It was a blessing for my kids to attend St. Patrick Academy. I am very satisfied and happy to have chosen this school for them. This is my son's second year and my daughter's first year they both enjoy going to school more and more each day. The teachers and staff are very nice. Kids are friendly to each other. Since it is a small school everyone seems to know each other which makes you feel welcome.

I couldn't have asked for a better school. My son has been going here since pre-school and now he will be graduating 8th grade in May we are so sad to be leaving this school. The faculty and staff are absolutely amazing!!! In the 10yrs of my son attending this school all of his teachers have been very involved in his education but more than that they have helped him grow into the person he is today and couldn't be more proud of him. I also love how diverse the school is it teaches students to respect and learn about other cultures. Sending my son to this school was the best decision I made.

We have absolutely loved having both of our girls in St. Patrick`s Academy since preschool. We were recommended the school by a family friend and have been amazed at how caring and attentive they are to the kids. I love that all the teachers, even not their class teachers know the kids by name and treat them with respect, but also hold them accountable. The affordability is amazing for a private school and you can tell they care so much for the children. I would 100% recommend St. Patrick`s Academy.

We love St. Patrick! Our daughter is in pre-school and she absolutely loves it. She knows all her teachers by name and always gives us good feedback on a daily basis. Her vocabulary has increased significantly since she started school, it is truly amazing to see her development. I have met all of her teachers and they are all great people and their dedication to the students is noticeable. I highly recommend St. Patricks to anyone thinking about a Catholic school for their child.

When we first decided to enroll our son in pre-school, we did our research to find the best school for him. My husband's co-worker recommended Saint Patrick Academy. I was apprehended at first but decided to give it chance. Best decision we ever made. The staff is awesome. Their compassion and dedication to providing support and the fundamental foundation of education they have implemented in our children. Teachers and staff respond to my emails, phone calls, and texts in a timely manner. My son is in 8th and my daughter is 4th. My daughter would come home and shared her experiences at school with us.

St. Patrick's Academy has done wonders for my 13-year-old daughter she is bright, confident, and LOVES her school. To have a teenager be obsessed with school lets me know how safe and involved she feels within her community. Her teachers really guide her to success and it makes me feel confident allowing her to dive in and involving herself within the school.

My wife and I at some point in our early schooling were schooled at a Catholic elementary school. Upon coming to a Catholic school in San Francisco, I immediately felt at home. Many years later, this feeling came over me when I first toured St. Patrick Academy. Wow, it was a feeling I hoped to give to my children. Through the grace of God, we enrolled our first child onto the school and then my second child and we referred my wife`s sister in hope that she would enroll her daughter. She did. The feeling that resonated then and so prominent at St. Patrick Academy was that my children would be in a safe, spiritual, caring, and high education curriculum. On top of all that, these children would tap into their deep talents, which they have. My children and niece have developed into very educated individuals holding good grades and have developed wonderful skills in music. As I look back at that first day I toured St. Patrick Academy, I am so happy and grateful for our decision to enroll our precious children in the Academy. While one has graduated, I know that the best is yet to come for the other two. I highly recommend St. Patrick Academy.

Great school!!! My kids are very happy to be at this school. The teachers and all staff are very nice and helpful. St. Patrick's offers smaller class sizes, teachers who care, more affordable than other private schools, this school is home for our family. I don't worry about my boys while under their care and guidance and I can't wait to potty train my almost 3 years old so he can attend their preschool program.

St. Patrick's Academy is a blessing to my child and my family. My daughter has been at St. Patrick's Academy since pre-school and will be there until she graduates in the 8th grade. The school is very community oriented and loving; the teachers are truly amazing, our church is great and the school curriculum is the best for our children. From all the school activities and gatherings, my wife and I couldn`t have asked for a better school for our child. Our daughter loves St. Patrick's Academy so much that when she is ever on Christmas, Easter, or summer break, she really misses her teachers and the schools. We couldn`t imagine having her at a different school.

I have been with St. Patrick's Academy for 24 years straight. My children range from ages 29 down to seven years old. I cannot tell you how extremely happy I am with my children's education and with all the professionalism and the religious education, along with the music program at St. Patrick's Academy. The teachers are very hands on along with all the staff and the principal is the best. I highly recommend the school for anyone who is looking to advance their children's education not only academically but religiously.

Where to start... we love this school! We are so happy we chose St. Patrick Academy for our daughters education. My child loves her teacher and enjoys the extra curricular activities she has throughout the week; Music, Art, and P.E. I can honestly say that the curriculum that is being offered is more advanced than other schools. I'm always impressed with the material that they cover. The staff are great about communicating with the parents and keeping us involved, even if its virtual and from a distance. We truly appreciate all that they do and all the safety measures they have taken during this pandemic. They have made it easier to navigate through these tough times. We just can't thank them enough for giving us the opportunity to go to school on-site and keeping our child on track with her education.

Great environment and very welcoming atmosphere. Academics program is strong as well but it still leaves a balance to do other things as well. I am confident that this school has set a solid foundation for my daughters learning path and that she has developed a true love for learning and following God`s steps. The school offers a great athletic, art and music program, all of which my daughter loves participating in and have gained an appreciation for each. I am confident we made the BEST choice for our children at St. Patrick Academy. Highly recommend this school!

My family and I are new to Saint Patricks this year. My daughter started kindergarten this school year, and I could not be happier with my decision to send her there. The teachers and all of the rest of the staff are amazing. With all all that went on this year, the staff did an excellent job balancing keeping everyone safe and ensuring our kids got an educational school year. My daughter loves it there, and comes home excited to talk about all her new friends. I have seen so much progress in my daughter from where she started the school year to where she is finishing it off. I can see my daughter continuing her education here for years to come.

My child has been at St. Patrick`s Academy since kindergarten and it saddens me that this is her last year. St. Patrick`s Academy is the best decision I made for my child`s education. My child has been well prepared to exceed in high school and beyond. The integration of faith, academics, and arts are very well balance.

I have had my children at St. Patrick`s Academy for 4 years and plan on keeping them here through middle school. From the sports program, integrated arts, and staff, I have been nothing but pleased with the school. Not to mention the school has done an AMAZING job with ensuring a safe and healthy environment for in person learning during COVID. If you are looking for a faith based academic setting that will not only set your children up for success in high school and beyond, but will instill the morals and values that are so important in today`s society, SPA has and is doing just that.

The best decision I made for my children`s education was to enroll them at Saint Patrick Academy. They have been attending school here for 7 years and we plan to stay. I really love being part of this small faith based community. They also have some wonderful teachers here and their curriculum includes an integration of the arts. Both my children play musical instruments which I fully credit to the schools and music teacher`s influence.

St Patrick Academy offers excellent education to students and have lots of enrichment classes, clubs and sports. I have to students who graduated from St. Patrick and another one who is currently in 1st Grade and has been at St. Patrick since TK. St Patrick prepares students for college and it is definitely one of the best schools in Sacramento. My family loves the school and the staff have become our 2nd family.

I couldn`t have asked for a better experience for my daughter. My favorite element has to be the diversity. Children of many ethnic backgrounds all teaching and learning about all their similarities and differences. My daughter favorite part is without a doubt the enrichments- music, drama, vollyball and student council.

We love St. Patricks for our children. I currently have a Kindergartener and a 7th grader. This school really provides an environment that feels like a loving family. The teachers are engaged and supportive of their students. The preschool/TK program is AMAZING! My Kindergartener was reading as a TK student. His teacher, Ms. Laura, sparked such a love of learning in him from Day 1. We moved back to CA from FL 2 years ago and attending St. Patrick's Academy made the move and transition a lot easier, especially for my oldest child. The school really focuses on education as well as person development .
