About St. Patrick's Episcopal Day School
St. Patrick’s is an independent, coeducational, Episcopal parish day school located in the Palisades section of Northwest Washington, D.C., serving more than 500 students from three-year-old Nursery through Grade 8 on two campuses. For nearly 60 years, St. Patrick's has been providing a vibrant, challenging, coeducational school environment that balances tradition and innovation in an educational ...program that emphasizes the acquisition of essential skills, integration of disciplines, and active learning. It seeks to educate young people who will grow in intellectual and academic strength, personal integrity, openness to change, commitment to service, and confident and ethical involvement in the world. St. Patrick's students, whose families live throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, go on to a variety of fine schools - including local independent day schools, boarding schools largely in the Middle Atlantic and New England regions and, less frequently, public schools - upon graduation.
There are three divisions at St. Patrick's, including the Nursery School (Nursery and PK), Lower School (Kindergarten to Grade 3), and Upper School (Grades 4 through 8). The main Whitehaven Campus is home to students in Nursery through Grade 6 and math and science classes for Grades 7 and 8. The MacArthur Campus, the traditional home to the Grades 7 and 8 program, is located about a half mile away. St. Patrick's also has a regulation athletic field and stadium complex located on the Foxhall Campus, a short distance from the Whitehaven Campus.
