Exceptional Literacy is the intention and the destination of the educational journey at St. Patrick’s. It prepares each student to seek new knowledge, to fulfill a greater sense of personal responsibility, and to understand and communicate effectively with others. At the forefront of this effort are our talented and dedicated faculty and staff, working in close partnership with families to support each student.
