Welcome to Patrick Henry Downtown Academy! 

I am thrilled to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year, and I am even more excited to say that we will be learning in person this year! Though the pandemic is not over, we feel confident that we can keep our students and staff members safe through our Covid protocols. We know they are successful because we made it through the entire 2020-2021 school year without a single positive case of Covid in our student population. Your partnership is essential to keeping our students, staff, and families safe and healthy!  

This year, I will be updating our school community regularly through phone, email, and website communications. Take a look at the principal's blog, The Patrick Henry Post, where we will be sharing the accomplishments of students and staff. Our first edition is a brief introduction to me, but I encourage you to take a look at all of the posts from the past school year to see what we are all about at Patrick Henry! Please email me or call the school to set up an appointment if you'd like to meet me in person or virtually:, 314.231.7284.

Thank you for choosing St. Louis Public Schools and Patrick Henry Downtown Academy for your child's education. Our mission is to equip all students with the academic skills, scholarly habits, and character traits necessary to be successful in college or the career of their choice. We promise to pursue this mission for every child who comes through our doors every day. Thank you for partnering with us!
