We moved to the Fredericksburg area from out of state 3.5 years ago. We knew no one in the area and needed to find a kindergarten for our oldest child (then 5). After touring St. Patrick Catholic School, we just "knew" that this was the environment where we wanted our children (we have a total of 4) to learn and grow. This school has become a family to us - the teachers are amazing and treat our children as their own - ensuring they are challenging them academically as well as providing them with a strong faith base!

My children have been attending Saint Patrick School for years now. We are very pleased with the entire package the school has to offer. Faith is first and foremost important. The academics are excellent and we have seen other students that have attended and graduated excel in the Governor's School other Catholic High School as well as in college. The school offers sports, extracurricular activities such as band and Destination Imagination. The school's DI teams have advanced to compete with the world for 4 straight years. The teachers and administration are top notch. For our family, this school community offers us a lot!!! We are very pleased!!!
