Thank you for your interest in St. Patrick's.  Our Admission Team is eager to meet your family and to introduce you to the wonderful program that we offer for students from Nursery School through Grade 8.  We invite you to come to campus and linger in our classroom spaces where you will see the kind of engagement our students have with learning, with one another, and with their teachers.

St. Patrick’s is an independent, coeducational, Episcopal parish day school.  Located on two campuses, Whitehaven Parkway and MacArthur Boulevard, St. Patrick’s has a half-century tradition of providing a vibrant, challenging, coeducational school environment within the District of Columbia for young people to grow as healthy intellectual, social and emotional, and moral and spiritual beings.  Development has recently begun on the Foxhall campus, beginning with a regulation-size athletic field which was completed in April 2012.

Please explore this website to learn more, complete an inquiry form to receive printed materials, and call our Admission Office to ask any questions about the process of applying to St. Patrick’s, and to schedule a tour of this exciting place. We look forward to meeting you and working with your family!
