The St. Patrick Education Commitment
Academically, St. Patrick Cathedral School is committed to maintaining the highest educational standards, preparing our young people to be responsible citizens and to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Our strengths include a focus on a “back to basics” approach for instruction in language arts, reading, spelling, mathematics, religion, writing, and science with an emphasis on developing critical thinking skills.
Additionally, our program includes classes in Music, Art, Spanish, Speech/Public Speaking, Computer Literacy, and Physical Education for all grade levels. A highly qualified staff who articulate, plan instruction across the grade levels, and integrate technology that contributes to our school’s strength.
Involvement in service projects endeavors to develop responsibility, self-discipline, cooperation, leadership, and self-esteem. In further developing a more diverse student, school-wide enrichment activities include Mariachi, Piano, Guitar, Young Rembrandt’s, Student Senate, National Junior Honor Society, Yearbook, Academic Decathlon, and sports programs organized by the Diocese of El Paso Catholic Schools Athletic League (CSAL).
Educational field trips provide the students with additional learning experiences beyond the confines of the school, which are used to enhance the subjects during the school year. Visits to the school from individuals and community groups contribute to broadening our students’ knowledge base.
