Blue Ribbon and Accreditation

Blue Ribbon


In 2005, St. Patrick Catholic School was selected as one of 266 schools from across the nation to be selected as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. Awarded by the U.S. Department of Education, The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. The coveted National Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content. 




St. Patrick Catholic School is committed to providing its students with a quality Catholic education focused on academic excellence, faith formation, and service. St. Patrick Catholic School is dually accredited through the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops Department of Education (TCCB ED) and AdvancEd-SACS. The TCCB  ED is recognized by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), and is responsible for the accreditation for Texas Catholic schools.


St. Patrick Catholic School is also affiliated with the Catholic Diocese of Dallas and the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA).
