General Admission Procedures (Nondiscriminatory Policy)
St. Patrick's School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of creed, race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarships, and athletic and other school administered programs.
Every Catholic School respects the dignity of each person and therefore will not bar admission to any child because of race or nationality.. Furthermore, the creed of any child will not bar admission to a Catholic School unless this would hinder the unique philosophy of the school.

Throughout the school year, prospective parents and their students are invited to come and see how St. Patrick's Catholic School makes a difference in the lives of our students. Tours are purposefully scheduled during the school day so that visitors can see the interaction between teachers and students. Visitors also have the opportunity to see how our students are engaged in the learning process and the general atmosphere of our school. We encourage interested and new families to make an appointment 24 hours in advance, but also welcome drop-in inquiries. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have and provide you with additional school information. We can schedule a tour, or time permitting, an unscheduled tour may be given. Tours can be scheduled by contacting the school office at 608-269-4748.
Tuition aid is available to students who are registered members of St. Patrick's Parish. Tuition aid is based on need.
A completed tuition aid form must be completed. We use a professional organization called FACTS to assist us in determining how scholarships will be given. No full scholarships are given. The school administration has the final decision on the aid amount.
Please contact the school office for a FACTS Tuition Aid Application.
