Welcome to the Home of the Shamrocks! With a tradition and brotherhood stretching back to 1861, Saint Patrick High School has been an exemplary school community focused on the growth of young men from all around the Chicagoland area. We strive for greatness in academics, faith, service, the arts and athletics. Our community of teachers, counselors, coaches, administration and staff come together to create an exceptional high school experience for our young men.

We continue to excel in our development of rigorous academic College Preparatory programs including Advanced Placement and PACC courses which allow students to take on college level courses and earn college credit while attending St. Pat’s. Additionally, we strive to create opportunities in STEAM, INCubator, World Languages and Robotics that expose students to the 21st Century skills necessary for success in the future. St. Pat’s continues to support the Arts through various electives in both Fine Arts and Performing Arts and we are proud to host multiple programs in our Stahl Family Theatre. We have a 100% graduation rate with students attending colleges and universities across the country.

Saint Patrick High School offers twelve male varsity sports, all of which offer various levels of competition for our student-athletes. While we boast our own swimming pool and turf athletic fields, the Shamrocks also compete at a variety of prestigious facilities including Kerry Wood Field, Triton College, Read-Dunning Park and Ridgemoor Country Club. In addition to athletics, St. Pat’s supports dozens of extracurricular clubs and activities for students to get involved in.

The Saint Patrick High School mission is to transform boys into young men. Guided by innovative Lasallian principles, we prepare leaders inspired by faith, tradition and brotherhood.  I am absolutely confident that you will find our faculty, staff and administration to be student-centered, supportive, and focused on this mission. We will challenge your students to be their very best and we will always be there to help them meet those challenges.
