St. Patrick's Catholic School - Where every day starts with a prayer and ends with learning.


St. Patrick's Catholic School was founded in 1916 by Fr. Thomas Augustine Judge. It is a small, co-ed, private Catholic school for students in grades PreK-3 through 8. We are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools

In January of 2010, the school building located at 3910 Lakewood Drive was engulfed in flames. Though there were no human casualties, there was extensive damage to our campus. The spirit of the families, faculty, and staff remain strong, however, in our new temporary location on 40th Street. Education in a strong, Catholic tradition remains our focus at this location while we work toward completing a new building.


Plans for the building can be viewed at the school's current location (2701 40th St., Phenix City), at the Church, and in the column to the right.  The initial capital fund raising campaign has been completed.  Currently, there is a 2015 Capital Campaign "Our Parish, Our Children, Our Future"  individuals interested in contributing can contact Fr. José Paillacho at the parish office, 334-298-9025.
