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.
This year’s Drama Club production is Disney’s Lion King, Jr. Two of the most widely known musical numbers from the movie and show are “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” and “The Circle of Life.” Both songs, in fact, capture the essence of Catholic education.
A Catholic education is about love: the love of parents who provide their children with an education rooted in values and spirituality, the love of faculty who view teaching as a vocation, not an occupation, the love of students for learning and the quest for knowledge. Catholic education is also about the circle of life. We begin in September by welcoming the youngest members of our school community, our three and four year olds, and we conclude in June by sending off the young men and women of our Eighth Grade to the next stage of their lives in high school. In between we prepare our students spiritually, socially, emotionally and academically to greet the future with confidence, enthusiasm and success.
At St. Patrick Catholic Academy students experience each day the love that emanates around them as they participate in the circle of life of their childhood.
We welcome you to join us in this adventure!
