As is true at most other independent schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of each child’s St. Patrick’s education. Giving ensures that we are able to meet our strategic goals­­ of attracting and retaining the most talented faculty and staff, promoting a diverse student body, maintaining our outstanding physical plant, and continuing to enhance the educational experience.

The two largest fundraising efforts, by the fiscal point of view and by volunteerism at St. Patrick’s are the Annual Fund and the annual Auction to Benefit the Financial Aid Program. We invite you to give and to learn more.

For generations, St. Patrick’s has benefited from a strong culture of philanthropy. From our humble beginnings as a six-student nursery in the Church basement to today, each generation of St. Patrick’s families has provided generously for students in the present and in the future. We believe that, as the beneficiaries of previous families’ vision and generosity, we must be responsible stewards of this special place not only for our own children and their classmates but future generations.
