St. Patrick Catholic School Alumni Association
St. Patrick Catholic School’s alumni have always played a vital role in the success of the school. Years and decades after graduating, St. Patrick’s alumni still feel a special connection to the school. Being an alumnus means being a part of an extended, close-knit family. St. Patrick is proud to officially establish the St. Patrick Catholic School Alumni Association. The mission of the association is to engage our alumni and parents of alumni to build lifelong relationships that advance the continuing success of St. Patrick Catholic School, including its current and former students.
Tuition fees provide for approximately 75% of the cost to educate a student. The difference is referred to as the gap. Annual fund gifts are designed to bridge that gap, meeting the operational needs, supporting the mission of our school, and making a superior Catholic education attainable for more families.

These gifts to St. Patrick Catholic School honor someone special while furthering the mission of the school. In addition, you can purchase a commemorative brick to be prominently displayed on the school premises.
