St. Patrick School of Santo Domingo, an American-type English school, was founded on March 17th, 2005. One of our main objectives is to support and reinforce the guidelines of the education system in the Dominican Republic and to provide, through an American Curriculum, the education necessary to succeed in all areas of development. We focus on providing an integral, modern education for students starting in Preschool all the way through High School.
Our commitment to high academic standards earned us accreditation by the Accrediting Commission International (ACI) and the Accrediting Commission International (ACI) accreditation and membership in the International Schools Association (ISA).
Motivated by the need to continue to promote the strong principles that are an intricate part of our educational beliefs, we decided to adopt the Catholic identity and include in our curriculum, specific subjects as well as special activities to promote the highest human values that frame our identity as a school: Integrity, Loyalty and Commitment. The school fulfills the standards of the North American Curriculum, supported by the Common Core Standards, and it follows the official programs, academic calendar, and requirements of the Ministry of Education in the Dominican Republic.
After a collaborative process with the involvement of all stakeholders, St. Patrick School presented to the entire school community a new Mission and Vision statement that emphasizes the interest in forging entrepreneurial leaders, and the commitment toward academic excellence. The «True Mission» was born as a result of the commitment of the entire community to support all the strands of excellence and high quality contained in the new mission statement.
