Academics

St. Pat’s recognizes and appreciates that a diverse student body is blessed with a wide range of academic talent. We capitalize on this diversity by integrating three programs of learning: ACADEMY, DELASALLE, PHOENIX.  These programs can function individually but are most often scheduled in combination with the other programs.  Students take full advantage of real-life, problem solving scenarios as they share their individual strengths in several non-tracked classes.

All programs have been designed to meet admission requirements at competitive colleges and universities.  Placement is a result of:

  1. Standardized elementary and placement test scores

  2. Elementary teacher and high school counselor recommendations

  3. Elementary school reports and Parent/student interviews


THE ACADEMY PROGRAM is tailor-made for students who are high performers. Students in this group are characterized by their high ability, special interests, demonstrated superior performance, and strong motivation. (Download Brochure)
