When you walk through the gates at Saint Patrick Catholic School, you become part of a community that embraces you as part of a family. For over fifty years “Saint Pat’s” has been committed to spiritual formation and academic excellence in an environment rooted in Catholic values and the teachings of Christ. A school of nearly 500 students, our accredited academic program exceeds national standards and stresses a personal approach to the education of the whole student through diverse academic, athletic and co-curricular programs.

The school’s passionate commitment to serving others – we call it “being the light” – provides leadership and community service opportunities that help nurture St. Patrick’s students into becoming compassionate, highly respected young adults. St. Patrick’s, a pillar in the Carlsbad community, is proud to instill faith, leadership and knowledge in our youth.
