Message from the Principal

Welcome to St. Patrick Academy! Thank you for taking time to look at our website to see all the fantastic opportunities and experiences our students have each and every day. As the Academy principal, I am passionate about helping children receive the blessings of an excellent Catholic education. I have been in Catholic education for more than 30 years and I find this experience to be more of a ministry than a job.

I feel blessed and energized to be a part of such an amazing team of administrative professionals, as well as a dedicated staff and faculty, who are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our children. In partnership with all of you, our strong, faithful, and lively community, it is our greatest responsibility and our ministry to live and carry out our school’s mission, vision, values and goals. With the help of our forward thinking educators, St. Patrick Academy is able to offer a wide range of alternatives to conventional teaching, in order to pave the way for differentiated, engaging, and higher learning. I believe that setting high academic expectations, appropriately challenging our students in both curriculum and character, as well as providing suitable support systems to ensure that each student works at their highest God-given potential, will provide for us our thriving community that continues to foster the growth and development of the whole child.

With God’s help, let us continue to come together, not only to celebrate of the past, but to also embrace the changes and challenges of the future. I am looking forward to working with you and our students for each blessed and fulfilling year to come.


Mrs. Leslie M. Lastra
