The Smarter Decision

You are about to make one of the most important

decisions of your young life: choosing a high school that

will bring new experiences, new friendships, and prepare

you for your future.

Will the high school you choose provide an

education that is engaging, personalized and

specially tailored to your abilities to make you a

better student, prepared to take on college and

the world? Saint Patrick will.

At Saint Patrick, we offer three unique learning programs customized

to your abilities, including:

The Academy Scholars Program for students who are extremely high

performers and on an accelerated learning track.

The College Prep De LaSalle Program is our college preparatory

program that paves the way for admission into top universities and

students with many tools to enhance their learning. iPads

help our students become better organized, provide them with

highly engaging classwork, and allow them to dive deeper

into their studies than ever before.”


Will you earn college credits while in high

school? You can at Saint Patrick.

At Saint Patrick, qualified students with high academic abilities or interests

are placed in the Academy Scholars Program. Incoming freshman are

placed based upon their entrance exam scores and their performance

at the elementary school level. Through this innovative program, at the

beginning of junior year, students have the opportunity to earn college

credits through the PACC and AP programs.


The Program for Advanced College Credit (PACC) is a partnership with

Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota through which Saint Patrick students

can dually enroll in select classes for college credit at a significantly reduced

cost. And the credits are transferable to most universities in the nation.


The Advanced Placement Program (AP) consists of courses that are

also taught at the college level. At the end of the year, students have the

option of taking the AP exam. Based upon exam scores, students may

be awarded college credit.
