Saint Patrick Catholic School is a joyful and faith-filled learning community dedicated to helping students 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 a population of approximately 400 students from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.

Enrollment is open to children from all faith traditions, Catholic and non-Catholic alike. Sixty percent of our current students are Catholic while forty are friends of other faiths. Spiritual instruction follows the Consensus Curriculum of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond.

We as a school strive to educate the whole child, meaning we aim to conscientiously 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 an academic curriculum as well as The Graduate at Graduation. Using Choice Theory, we help students recognize their own power in making choices that lead them in becoming 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). Prospective parents submit an admissions application and applicants complete grade-level specific assessments. In addition, all parents join us 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 unique and one-of-a-kind learning environment. Please call the Admissions Office at (757)-213-0847 or email the Admissions Office to request  additional information.

The application dealine to be considered in the first round of admissions is January 15th. After this date, applications will be processed as space is available.
