Principal's Message

Welcome to St. Patrick Catholic School and thank you for visiting our website.  We are proud to serve students and their families from preschool through sixth grade.  Students enjoy a rigorous curriculum in reading and language arts, math, science and social studies, as well as encore classes including media and technology, art, music, band, physical education, French and Spanish. Students receive daily religious instruction, sacramental preparation, attend Mass together and participate in community service projects sharing their faith with others.  
At St. Pat’s school, our students, teachers, staff, and parents work together creating a positive school environment where everyone learns and grows in faith. Each student's growth; spiritually, academically, physically, and socially, is actively supported by our dedicated school staff.  Teachers use best practices to provide a variety of challenging and exciting learning experiences to engage student learners each and every day.  We believe that by modeling the values and teachings of Jesus to our students and families, we teach them the importance of serving others and create young moral leaders who continue to serve their families and communities long after graduation.

As you explore our website, you'll find information about the special events occurring at St. Pat's and the other schools in the Aquinas Catholic Schools System.  I invite you to visit and tour our school to see how our warm and caring St. Patrick School family can assist your family with the education and spiritual formation of your children.

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.



St. Patrick School offers the opportunity for an excellent Catholic education rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are a family-centered school community, which respects the God-given dignity of every person and celebrates the development of Gospel faith and identity through sacrament and service. We are committed to providing a learning focused and student-centered curriculum for the good of the Church and the world.
