Discover The Patrick School

Academic Philosophy

The academic program at The Patrick School is based on a traditional liberal arts curriculum. The first three years of the academic program are largely standard for all students. In senior year, the student is given considerably more freedom of choice. The foundation of the quality academic program stems from the following: all courses are taught in a small setting (less than 20 students) by a high-quality instructor.

The Patrick School offers a challenging, rigorous academic program for students at all levels of proficiency. While our Honors Program prepares students for some of the top universities in the country (The Patrick School alumni have attended Columbia University, Harvard, NYU, Duke, North Carolina, Canisius College, Rutgers-New Brunswick Honors College, Temple, and many other elite institutions), we also offer a wide range of resources for students with special learning needs including an Inclusion Program and other supplemental resources. The academic philosophy at The Patrick School demands that ALL students work as hard as they can on a level that both challenges them and allows them to make steady, consistent progress toward college readiness.

The academic experience at The Patrick School is not universal for all students, nor should it be. Students face a curriculum built for their specific ability level and designed to allow them to get the most out of their time in the classroom.
