Admissions Process

St. Patrick School is committed to quality education within a Catholic environment. Students and parents are expected to support the philosophy, educational and administrative policies of St. Patrick School.

St. Patrick School respects the dignity of all students. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, nationality, ethnic origin or sex, as required by the terms of Title IX of the Education Act of 1972, Public Law 92-318 (as amended by Public Law 93-568).
