"St. Patrick provided me with the foundation that helped shaped my faith. As I began to take my Catholic faith seriously and discern a call to the priesthood, St. Patrick provided me with the spiritual nourishment that was necessary to foster my vocation."
Carol Ann Hartery

“We have no doubt that choosing St. Patrick Catholic High School for our children’s education was the right choice. We have seen them flourish while they have been there. We believe they receive a high quality education, but more importantly the school helps develop their character. They are surrounded in a protective atmosphere that promotes respect and responsibility.

“They expand on the values and morals that are taught at home, therefore we feel like we are a team working together. The teenage years can be difficult and challenging. It gives us some peace of mind that during these transitional years they are surrounded by peers and teachers that put an emphasis on Catholic values.”
Stephen Roybal ’08

“My time at St. Patrick was absolutely invaluable. I may have only spent a year there, but the school serves as the continuing legacy of the Catholic education on the Coast offered by its predecessors Sacred Heart, Mercy Cross, Notre Dame, and St. John. The faculty definitely prepared me for college and set me up for success in the classroom, but I also think in a lot of ways St. Patrick taught me how to be self motivated, how to take ownership of my own path, and how to take a chance.”
