St. Patrick’s Catholic School was built in the 1930s--the first parochial school in Janesville.

Over 80 years, this school has provided a sound, quality Christian education to hundreds of students who have turned out to be good citizens of our Janesville community and our democratic society.

Thanks to the pastors, teachers, parents, students, volunteers and supporters who have had the opportunity to take advantage of this facility.

Let’s not worry about the school status in the future but be grateful for the service it has provided to our community for all those years.
