St. Patrick is first and foremost, a Catholic school. It is our belief that a strong Catholic identity is formed by not just teaching religion as a subject, but by modeling our Catholic faith as a living part of our lives. Students are given the opportunity to participate in daily prayer, both in the classroom and school wide prayer, weekly liturgies, prayer services, and service projects. The social teachings of the Catholic Church are a large part of our service work in our community. Students also have the opportunity to serve within the church as lectors, gift bearers, servers, and music ministers for our weekly liturgies and special parish wide celebrations throughout the year.

St. Patrick School of the Terre Haute Deanery, in collaboration with our families and parishes, serve God, the child, and the world around us. We provide a Catholic Christian atmosphere where faith and education blend to build character and increase knowledge while addressing individual needs to promote lifelong learning.
