The mission of St. Patrick’s School is to provide quality traditional, Catholic education in a secure, caring and nurturing community. In cooperation with the families of our school and parish, we help students experience self-worth and respect, and guide them to develop to their fullest potential while pursuing academic excellence.
Our role is to teach the Gospel message of Jesus to our students so they may develop a strong relationship with God and with each other, and in doing so empower them in their world. Finally we emphasize the acquisition of academic, interpersonal and leadership skills that enable students to live and share Christian values, respect, and appreciate diversity in a changing world.
We believe that:
- Children are our community’s most valuable asset, and every child has special gifts.
- All children have the right to a safe and nurturing learning environment, free of physical and emotional intimidation.
- The Catholic school is an integral part of the community of faith and a ministry of the church.
- Education develops the whole person-spiritually, ethically, emotionally, socially.
- Education is a shared responsibility of the school, student, family, parish community, and God.
- Every child’s unique learning styles are respected by teachers and students.
- Understanding and appreciation of race, religion, and culture are critical in a diverse world.
- Self-esteem is directly related to success.
- Risk-taking and an openness to change are necessary for continuous development.
- Every child will grow and learn together through work, prayer and play.
Our School's History
St. Patrick’s School opened in 2004 with forty-two students in kindergarten-grade 3. Founding pastor, Monsignor Thomas Kane envisioned a thriving parish school for the St. Patrick’s community.
One grade was added each subsequent year, and in June 2009, we graduated our first eighth grade class. In August of 2014, we welcomed our first prekindergarten class of four year olds. Twelve years after its inception, St. Patrick’s is at full capacity with a wait list in multiple grades. Our school currently serves 159 families and 246 students in prekindergarten through eighth grade. The majority of families are registered parishioners of St. Patrick’s Church.
