Mission & History

St. Patrick School is a Catholic Preschool and Elementary School offering a Christian, faith-centered curriculum for our students. By integrating our Catholic faith with quality learning experiences, St. Patrick School assists students with developing the skills for becoming responsible members of our school, faith, and civic communities.

The philosophy of St. Patrick School is to provide a nurturing learning environment that promotes strong Christian values, love for God, respect for others, service to community, and prayer. We educate the whole child and support each student's growth spiritually, academically, emotionally, socially and physically.

St. Patrick School is a member of Aquinas Catholic Schools, a unified school system in the La Crosse Deanery of the Diocese of La Crosse. Although the majority of our students are Catholic, our enrollment is not limited to members of St. Patrick Parish. A number of our students and their families are members of other Catholic parishes or faith denominations. Each family is attracted to the excellent education and community spirit the school offers.
