St. Patrick School

St. Patrick School is a unique Christian community organized to foster the spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth of each person in a spirit of dedication, freedom, and love that is based on the Gospel message.
We strive to give each child the necessary fundamentals of their faith to become good Christian adults.
We realize that each child is special, possessing his or her own talents.
We hope to develop these talents to their potential by teaching our students to have a respectful and responsible attitude, to think creatively and independently, to strive for excellence, and to be a faithful servant of our Lord.
Believing that the parents are the first and foremost educators of their children, we cooperate with and supplement the home in providing leadership (social graces) in the formal Catholic education of their children.
As a faculty we work together, each developing our own subject area with professional competence, but sensitive to those opportunities to aid students in all aspects of their lives.
The mission of St. Patrick School is to foster the spiritual growth and academic life of its students and faculty and to teach children, with the cooperation of parents, a Catholic way of life.
