St. Patrick Academy offers the unique service of matching adult mentors with each high school student to assist our students in their personal growth and their academic challenges. All mentors are selected carefully and screened according to the Diocesan Safe Environment Protocols. The relationship between the mentors and students is monitored. Mentors meet with their students about once a week to provide support, advice, a listening ear, and personal caring. Mentoring programs have been consistently found to have a positive effect on student achievement and maturity.
All freshmen are invited to enroll in this program so as to further their personal and academic development. The program is also open to students in grades 10-12 and all students are encouraged to participate. Parent support and cooperation in this program is vital to the program’s success.
If you would like to volunteer to be a mentor for one students, please contact Mrs. Mary Cipriano, Campus Minister, at 401-421-9300.
