Why Saint Patrick Academy?
Because joy should be in the journey. With 150 years of educating behind us, we are experts at guiding students on their journey.
Saint Patrick Academy offers a personalized quest to become the best version of yourself as God intended you to be. This is what we mean by Education Fully Alive. With an ideal student to teacher ratio, standardized test scores in the top 1-15%, and a joyful culture that encourages the practice of virtue, SPA offers the most rigorous and exciting Preschool through Grade 8 program on the New Hampshire Seacoast.
"We are about a values-based, faith-driven education where we teach self-reliance, respect for others, and love of community."
A State-of-the-art facility, so our students Can focus on what's important
As you enter the school the inscription over the chapel is immediately visible, “Let the children come to me” – Matthew 9:14. This is an invitation from Jesus to all of us. If we teach children and show them that we are not alone, that there is God, that He loves them, then this will be the foundation of their confidence and trust. It will free them to be joyful.
Our Catholic Christian identity is not a class subject. It is simply who we are and all are invited to experience its goodness, truth, and beauty. Piety alone, though, is no excuse for poor scholarship as academic excellence is core to our private Catholic school’s K-8 programming. We regularly review our academic performance including Spanish, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), art, music and physical education. STEM instruction is only offered for grades 3rd – 8th each week and is one of the many innovative areas our students really enjoy.
