The program for students with Down syndrome began in 2003-2004 as the Matthew Morgan Classroom, targeting students who were 14-21 years of age. In 2011, St. Patrick Catholic School was able to continue that legacy by opening enrollment to kindergarten-aged children. Our mission is to provide a quality, functional, faith-based education in a classroom setting where each child can progress toward his/her individual potential. Basic academics and life skills are taught to help students become self-reliant and independent. Families will discover an inclusive environment in a faith-based setting that will nurture their children spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially. These students are an integral part of our school and contribute to St. Patrick’s mission to “Be Jesus to one another.” The Matthew Morgan Program is housed at St. Patrick Catholic School (grades K – 5) and Holy Trinity Catholic Middle School (grades 6 – 8).
