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.
The scene each September at St. Patrick Catholic Academy is always a familiar one: students of all ages, those returning and those who are new to our academy family, with smiling faces in crisp uniforms and shiny new shoes being greeted by teachers who have spent the last days of summer decorating classrooms and organizing supplies and instructional materials for the coming academic year. St. Patrick Catholic Academy builds upon the legacy of excellence in Catholic education established in 1863 with the founding of St. Patrick School. Our lay faculty honors the tradition of the Dominican Sisters by continuing to pass on their charism of truth, prayer, study, common life, mission and praise.
Each fall, our graduates visit to happily inform us that their transition to high school has been seamless because they possess the writing, critical thinking, and now STEM skills that will enable them to achieve their goals and fulfill their dreams for the future.
The enthusiasm and hope of each September is sustained throughout the school year as administration, faculty and parents work cooperatively and collegially to ensure the spiritual, academic, social and emotional growth of each student.
We pray to our patron, St. Patrick, to guide and inspire us as we embark upon this new academic year of 2015-2016 at St. Patrick Catholic Academy: a Catholic school of excellence in the Dominican tradition.
