"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."
- William Butler Yeats
|Saint Patrick Catholic School is a joyful and faith-filled learning community dedicated to helping students freely choose their personal best in every aspect of their lives. Founded in 2005 by the James Barry Robinson Trust, Saint Patrick is an independent Catholic school with an enrollment of approximately 400 students from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Enrollment is open to children from all faith traditions, Catholic and non-Catholic alike. 65% of our current students are Catholic while 35% are friends of other faiths. Spiritual instruction follows the Consensus Curriculum of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond.|
We strive to educate the whole child. That is, we aim to carefully guide students in their intellectual, physical, relational, spiritual, and service pursuits. Our mission is to inspire student motivation and foster student autonomy to achieve the goals of The Graduate at Graduation. Using Choice Theory, we help students recognize their own power in making choices that lead them to become happy, responsible, faithful, and successful people in school and beyond.
Saint Patrick Catholic School admits qualified students of any race, color, gender, ethnicity, national origin, or disability (if reasonable accommodations can be assumed by the school). Parents submit an admissions application and applicants complete grade-level specific assessments. In addition, all prospective parents participate in a "Snapshot" informational tour as well as a family interview with our Director of Admissions.
We invite you to visit Saint Patrick Catholic School and experience firsthand our one-of-a-kind learning environment. Please call the Admissions Office at (757)-213-0847
