Our Story

Vision & Mission


The Code of Canon Law, Book III, Canon 795:
“Since true education must strive for complete formation of the human person that looks to his or her final end as well as to the common good of societies, children and youth are to be nurtured in such a way that they are able to develop their physical, moral, and intellectual talents harmoniously, acquire a more perfect sense of responsibility and right use of freedom, and are formed to participate actively in social life.”


Saint Patrick Catholic School educates and nurtures the whole child – mind, body, and spirit - to be a Christ-centered, compassionate, and courageous servant leader.


The Saint Patrick Catholic School mission speaks to six important "pillars" in education.  These principles form an educational framework intentionally focused on the whole formation of each student.

Cultivating a Growth Mindset in Students

Growth mindset is the belief that the brain’s capacity to learn is limitless and that failure is essential to growth. Saint Patrick Catholic School teachers encourage students to develop a growth mindset, presenting challenges as opportunities and guiding them through problem-solving. With this approach, students cultivate determination, resilience, perseverance, and grit.

Celebrating Gifts

  • Each child is made in the image of the Creator and is born with varying, inherent gifts.
  • Gifts are discovered over time and through many experiences.
  • Gifts are identified through ability, creativity, task commitment, and leadership.
  • A child’s personality and environment influences when and how children’s gifts are revealed.
  • A school, in collaboration with families, should nurture a child’s gifts through rich and varied experiences.
Saint Patrick Catholic School embraces the importance of providing dynamic and creative experiences so students can nurture their gifts.  Through differentiated learning in the classroom, activities that extend and enrich learning, as well as after-school clubs, sports, arts, camps, and community service projects, our school provides numerous opportunities for students to discover, develop and celebrate their gifts.
