September 22, 2022
Here at St Patrick we are working to enrich our students through the teachings of God and our Catholic faith. Focusing on our school's mission of providing “a Christ centered education empowering students through leadership, service, and academic excellence” allows our students to grow in their faith and learning.
Our school Masses and Monday Morning Prayer, as well as religion classes and the integration of Catholic values throughout the day, play a large role in developing our students faith. We, along with our parents, provide the foundation that will help our students continue to grow spiritually and academically. All the opportunities available to our students provide them with experiences vital to our school’s mission.
