Our Mission

We instill in our students a love and respect for our Catholic traditions in an environment where they feel safe and nurtured. We promote communication and collaboration among students, faculty, administration, and parents. Our curriculum, both traditional and innovative, challenges students to reach their full academic potential while encouraging them to emulate Jesus Christ in thought, word, and deed.

Our Philosophy

St. Patrick School is a community committed to faith and excellence. We work together to instill a love and respect for our Catholic traditions as well as a respect for one another and the world around us.

We believe that our environment and curriculum encourage students to work to their full potential and inspire them to develop an enthusiasm for lifelong learning.
We believe that collaboration among members of our St. Patrick community motivates children to develop their unique talents and gifts.
We believe that our graduates develop moral, ethical and spiritual values, embrace life in a Christ-like manner, and serve others as disciples of our faith.
