Welcome to St. Patrick School Forming Saints for the World and Heaven

Saint Patrick School has been an important ministry of Saint Patrick Church almost since the establishment of the parish in 1847. Our school had humble roots when Rev. Peter McMahon began offering classes in the parish rectory in 1860. A few years later, in 1864, Rev. McMahon received permission from the bishop of Covington to ask the Visitation nuns to formally establish an academy. The current school was formally established by Rev. Patrick Jones in 1902 and held classes for eight grades until the high school was added in 1926. The oldest part of the current campus was built under the leadership of Msgr. Leo Casey in 1948. The high school wing and gym extension were added under the leadership of Rev. William Hinds in 2000. Saint Patrick School remains the only Catholic parochial school in the Diocese of Covington that serves every grade from preschool to 12th grade. We continue to foster the goal of our founders in forming the Catholic faith in our youngest members, aiding them as they mature to become disciples of Jesus Christ. From the humble beginnings over 150 years ago to the addition of the Montessori preschool program in 2017, Saint Patrick School remains committed to helping our children know, love, and serve God in this life so that they will be happy with Him in the life to come.

As our own Bishop, His Excellency Roger J. Foys, is accustomed to saying, “There are alternatives to Catholic schools, but there is no substitute.” There is no substitute, we believe, because Catholic Education offers a holistic and integral education. To quote Blessed Basil Moreau, the founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, we aim at Saint Patrick to “always place education side by side with instruction. The mind will not be cultivated at the expense of the heart. While we prepare useful citizens for society, we shall likewise do our utmost to prepare citizens for Heaven.” Here at Saint Patrick School, we strive to train the intellects of our students, cultivate their faith, and instill the virtues necessary for the living of a good life. The advantage of a Catholic Education is in this very philosophy which permeates the totality of the education program offered.

In short, a Catholic Education is worth the cost; it is money well spent which, as an investment in your child’s education, will pay a lifelong dividend.

The St. Patrick volleyball team withstood a strong upset bid from Augusta in the 39th District semifinals with a 3-1 (26-28, 25-21, 25-17, 25-14) win to advance to the championship match vs. Bracken County on Thursday at Augusta.

The Lady Panthers overcame a slow start in the opening set to post the extra time win, setting up an exciting second set. Augusta was looking to go in front 2-0 in the match and led most of the way in the set, before a late rally lifted the Lady Saints to the four-point win.

With Augusta leading 21-17, a timeout was called to regroup the ladies in green and black. St. Patrick responded, scoring eight consecutive points to pull out the crucial win.Three of Caroline McKay’s eight aces on the evening were part of the 8-0 run.

The Lady Saints, who improved to 18-2, kept the positive momentum going into the third set to win by eight points, and closed out the match with an 11-point victory in the fourth set.

It was another night of outstanding defense from the hustling St. Patrick squad, which came up with 168 digs. Mandi Gilbert led the way with 38, Makenna Roush had 37, McKay 31, Faith Comer 23, Jaclyn Stewart 22, and Bria Bauer 16.
The Lady Saints served well most of the night, accumulating 20 aces. In addition to the eight from McKay, Stewart served up six aces, and Roush had three.
At the net, Stewart and Mercedes Hedgecock each had six kills, Roush and Gilbert four, and McKay three to give St. Patrick 23 kills.
McKay passed for six assists, Comer and Gilbert five apiece, and Stewart three.
