We believe that all people are created in the image of God and so we are called the Children of God. We believe that Honesty, Responsibility, Kindness, and Respect are essential to caring for ourselves, other people and the world around us.
St. Patrick’s Episcopal Day School educates students in Nursery through Grade 8. Believing that all of the individuals within the St. Patrick’s community—teacher and learner, adult and young person—are active, growing, and changing, we work to challenge and support them in what we understand to be a lifelong process. In particular, we strive to create an atmosphere of trust and cooperation in which to nourish each student’s growth toward personal integrity and a lifetime of service.

What kind of student is most successful at your school?
St. Patrick’s Admission Committee strives to offer admission to children whose level of development, emerging skills, and interest in the world around them indicate that they are ready for the program to which they are applying and will thrive within it. Because no single piece of a child’s file can give a full picture, we seek to gain a more complete profile of each student through teacher recommendations, transcripts, standardized assessment (Kindergarten and up), and student visits to the school. We evaluate the picture of the applicant that emerges and view it in the context of the class the student would join. The Admission Committee is also mindful of creating groups that reflect a vibrant mix of backgrounds, interests, and ability.
