General School Mission

"St. Patrick's Episcopal Day School encourages its children to extend their fascination with the world, to gain confidence about their roles in the world, and to understand the world more fully through others; recognizes that all of its children benefit from the high standards of a varied, challenging academic program that expects each child to take increasing responsibility for meeting those standards while also helping each child to discover and to develop his or her own unique gifts; and commits itself to the child's spiritual and moral growth within the context of the Judeo-Christian tradition, a commitment evident in an abiding concern for the quality of our shared life in this place and for service to the wider community."
