Three of our children attended St Patrick with the youngest graduating this year. Faculty and administration are excellent and actually know our children by name; they are not just a number in the system. The Blue Ribbon designation was well earned and speaks for the academics. Extracurricular activities are strongly supported and have earned numerous regional and state-level awards: Athletics, drama, mock trial, robotics, dance, cheer, etc. Finally, students are afforded a Christian world perspective in all their endeavors. We feel blessed to be a part of the St Patrick family ... thank you!

This is our 2nd year at St. Patrick. We moved from New Orleans to the Mississippi gulf coast. Looking for schools, we didn't know where to turn. I contacted St. Patrick and other schools for information. We were pleased with the response from St. Patrick and sent our daughter. A wonderful school, caring teachers and staff and great administration. also, great group of Parents. We look forward to the remaining years out daughter has at St. Patrick. A quote from out daughter, "mom, dad, I have real friends here at St. Patrick."
