All parents want the best education and school experience for their children. Parents may choose schools for a variety of reasons including the location, curriculum, athletics, after-school programs, faculty, graduation rate, safety measures, and etc. But there is one important piece that parents may not be factoring in enough – faith. There are lots of benefits for students who attend a school that focuses not only on a rigorous education but also on the love for religion.
Faith & Academics Are Complementary In Their Progression
Our private catholic school in New Hampshire offers students the opportunity to learn how to pray and teaches them how to gain confidence to feel comfortable and proud in expressing their faith in public. We believe that instilling this confidence in a student at a young age will take them far in their secondary education and long-term careers. Because of this, our independent PreK-3 to 8th-grade school focuses on an education that is fully alive. An education that is fully alive consists of education centered around a God who loves them, and an education that helps shape their souls and frees them to live a happy life. The faculty aims to inspire children to be fully alive and to equip them with a supernatural vision and a Christian worldview so they can live as a witness to the Gospel.
Saint Patrick Academy engages PreK-3 to 8th-grade students in a competitive curriculum that has placed them in the top 15% of all students in the country. It’s been proven that students in religious schools have a significant academic advantage over students in traditional public schools and charter schools. Our faith-based school believes faith is just as important as a student’s education.
The unity of Saint Patrick Academy school also sets us apart from other public institutions. The union of the mind and the heart is very present, and we offer each student personalized quests to become the best version of yourself as God intended you to be. We focus on the whole child to ensure value, growth, and development in all areas in order to foster their independence, creativity, and collaboration. We also devote time to helping students learn their skill sets to ensure success in their future academic journeys.
