WHO WE ARE
Welcome to St. Patrick of Heatherdowns School
St. Patrick of Heatherdowns, a Roman Catholic school community, is committed to assisting families in educating their children spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially in a Christian environment.
The dedicated faculty and staff of St. Patrick of Heatherdowns believes each child is a gift from God. They are thankful for the opportunity to shape the next generation into kind, loving, responsible beings and instill the courage to strive for greatness.
"Education is one of the most important ways by which the Church fulfills its commitment to the dignity of the person and building of community." (National Conference of Catholic Bishops. To Teach As Jesus Did, Chapter 1, Article #3).
Catholic schools have the responsibility to inculcate spiritual values while developing the intellectual, social and physical aspects of the individual.
To achieve these objectives, St. Patrick of Heatherdowns School has been set up in accordance with standards established by the State of Ohio, the Diocese of Toledo and St. Patrick of Heatherdowns Parish.
The St. Patrick of Heatherdowns school community is composed of students and their families, educators and parishioners.
We believe each person is a valued, unique individual.

We believe that one of the ways to doing God's work is by doing good works to others around us and to give to those in need.
