Principal’s Greeting

Greetings and welcome to Roanoke Catholic School!

For more than 130 years we have served the Roanoke Valley with an emphasis on faith in the Gospel message, familial values, and the aspiration for excellence as defining hallmarks of the learning community.

We recognize the significant investment that families make to send their children to Roanoke Catholic School, which is why we work just as hard to provide the most value for that investment.

We are proud to note that our graduates have a 100 percent college acceptance rate and earn on average more than $3 million per year in college scholarships.

Furthermore, through our dual-enrollment and Advanced Placement courses, our students have the potential to earn as many as 24 college credits — or a full year’s worth of college — while still at Roanoke Catholic.

Academic achievement — together with athletic, artistic, leadership and service opportunities — define the Roanoke Catholic School experience, making us an investment that pays for itself again and again.

Founded in 1889, we remain as dedicated as ever in our mission to develop the whole student, blending learning with faith and faith with daily life. We look forward to welcoming you into our community of faith soon.

With God’s blessings,

Patrick Patterson
Principal and Head of School
