When the Community of Hope (COH) held a grand-opening celebration for its relocated and expanded Family Health and Birth Center on April 30, many current patients, neighbors, and COH supporters had their first glimpse of the new facility on Bladensburg Road NE. One of the examination rooms at the 20,000+-square-foot center, the only freestanding birth center in the District, is named in honor of St. Patrick’s Episcopal Day School faculty and staff.
Alumni and Parents of Alumni
Here at St. Patrick's, we watch children as they grow up. It is such a delight to see them as they become adults, experience milestones, and come back to visit. We love to watch friendships that started at St. Patrick's sustain young people through secondary school, college, young adulthood, and beyond.
Long regarded as a lacrosse powerhouse, a legacy nourished under the guiding hand of Athletic Director and lacrosse coach Seamus Brophy, St. Patrick's is proud of its alumni from the Classes of '18 and '19 who have signed to play Division I lacrosse upon their high school graduations.
Adie Selassie W’16 is a stellar example of how the pursuit of academic excellence and the advancement of human understanding can reach beyond St. Patrick’s. An award-winning student-leader and social entrepreneur, Adie is a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist and a recipient of a Calvin Coolidge Presidential Scholarship (five students selected from more than 4,800 applicants) and an Outstanding Citizen Award from Arlington County.
The members of our exceptional Class of 2021 were able to do something they only hoped could happen after the year—or maybe the last two school years—they have experienced: They participated in a traditional, in-person Graduation, shared with family and friends, in the Nave on Friday, June 11. Even a few months earlier, the status of this event was difficult to confirm. However, instead of reconceiving the event in full, this year we were able to celebrate and honor our Grade 8 students as we should.
