ADMISSIONS

“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.”

– Carol Ann Hartery, Parent
