St. Patrick Catholic School

At St. Patrick, our mission is to educate students in a community of Spirituality, Scholarship, and Service.
Our Catholic faith informs everything we do from classroom lessons, to time at recess. Scholarship is central to our school, with students striving for success in core academic areas as well as supplemental curriculum. Finally, service is crucial to helping form students' virtue.
We require all grades to complete service hours and try to inspire them with servant leadership.
Catholicism is taught and practiced. Students of other faiths are always welcome. All students wear uniforms.

My daughter has been a student for the past 3 years. It truly is a great feeling to know your child enjoys going to school and loves her teacher. She has learned so much and is rewarded for her accomplishments. The principal and teachers are very involved and genuinely care for their students.
