St. Patrick Cathedral School Home



Inspiring. Loving. Thriving.  Together
“No matter the question, the answer is always Love!”

This simple statement, an extension of our patron St. Patrick, is the essence of
our school. One of trust. One of faith. One of compassion. One of belonging.
One of love. We try, to the best of our ability, to live this way of life with our
students, parents and guardians, families, and El Paso Community in all we do.

Belonging is what makes everything we do work. When students feel they
belong, they are engaged, they learn, they take care of each other, and they
thrive. When families feel they belong, they trust in what happens at school,
they feel their children and grandchildren are safe, and they are part of a
community that watches out for one another. 

St. Patrick Cathedral School is a community, first and foremost. A community
in which everyone belongs regardless of background. Our goal is to set young
people into the world who take care of others first have deepened their own
faith journey, work as hard as possible at all times, tackle challenges,
contribute to the world around them, and most importantly, LOVE!
Welcome to St. Patrick’s!
