Welcome to St Patrick Catholic Academy

St. Patrick Catholic Academy, established in 2013, is located within the grounds of St. Patrick Church, Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn. We build upon the 150 year history of St. Patrick Parish Elementary School in continuing to provide an exemplary Catholic education for our students. The Faculty of St. Patrick Catholic Academy honors the legacy of the Sisters of St. Dominic, who ministered to the children of St. Patrick School for over a hundred years, by continuing their charism of truth, prayer, study, common life, mission and praise.

At St. Patrick Catholic Academy, a school of excellence in the Dominican tradition, we encourage our students to look to the saints as heroes.  One definition of a saint is an ordinary person who did ordinary things in an extraordinary way.  What better example for children to emulate!
