ONE Campaign investment keeps St. Patrick Academy on the rise
Six years ago, there was concern about the future of St. Patrick Catholic School in Sacramento. Enrollment was at an all time low, barely serving over 100 students and many believed that the school would close.
St. Patrick Academy is a regional school serving the youth from several parishes throughout South Sacramento. Today, the school serves well over 300 students and is one of the most sought after schools in the Diocese. Enrollment at St. Patrick Academy is not the only thing on the rise. The school also sees continuous growth in student achievement. While enrollment and achievement are increasing, the school has a new look as well.
Like the school, the facilities were also in need of major investment. The Diocese worked closely with local construction company, Jackson Construction, Inc. on the much needed remodel. The updated facilities have helped to fulfill the vision of a campus that better serves its students and teachers—one can’t help but marvel at the new look and state of the art classrooms and learning spaces.
The dilemma that the school faces today is the need to address facility needs that will respond to the continued growth in the student population.
In order to meet that need, the ONE Campaign has made a strategic investment in the design and remodel of the school kitchen. Today, the school has a bustling food program that makes the need for new space essential. The project is expected to be completed by mid-May 2015.
The ONE Campaign allocation also includes funds for facility investments at Mercy High School in the North State, St. Francis High School and St. Patrick St. Vincent High School in Vallejo. We look forward to providing future reports on these projects. View Full eNewsletter
