Mission / Philosophy


St. Patrick School, serving Anamosa, Iowa, and surrounding communities since 1944, is open to all families desiring a faith-filled education. We offer a rigorous and relevant curriculum designed to support academic excellence in accordance with the values of the Catholic Church. Given our commitment to Christ-centered learning, PK-6 students are offered programs rooted in moral, spiritual, and intellectual values. Through prayer, service, and leadership, students are empowered to succeed in and out of the classroom.
