St. Patrick School
952 Buffalo St., Franklin, PA 16323 814-432-8689
Founded in 1894 by the Sisters of Mercy, Saint Patrick School offers a Catholic education from preschool through eighth grade. Our mission is to ensure that all students receive the support, encouragement, and resources to maximize spiritual, academic, and emotional growth. Sensitive to each child’s uniqueness, we envision life-long achievement through faith, learning, and action for every student.
We believe that…
…the Gospel is the moral compass for our spiritual growth.
…the health, safety, and welfare of students is of prime importance.
…expectations can be different for each student, but each student can be expected to achieve.
…when parents and teachers work as a team, education is optimized.
…learning how to learn contributes to lifelong achievement.
Our role in the Community
Saint Patrick School has been a positive presence in the Franklin
area since 1894. Firmly rooted in the Catholic Faith tradition, we strive to
provide students with a solid spiritual and academic foundation on which to
build. Although our students come from various communities, our family
atmosphere brings us together. Those not of our faith feel welcome as well. It
is our intention to maintain this presence as we continue the spiritual and
academic formation of those entrusted to us. Today the teachers continue
teaching the same values that were instilled in the students 120 years ago.
