Our school’s mission is to provide a learning experience of high academic standards in a Christian environment, where children can develop their intellectual abilities and their sense of self-worth and responsibility, and where students, parents, and staff form a close, caring community where all support and share in each other’s growth.
St. Paul’s School is a coeducational, independent Christian school serving preschool through eighth grade students. St. Paul’s is a nonprofit corporation governed by a board of trustees.
Under the leadership of the school Chaplain, our chapel and classroom religion classes are designed to develop students’ spiritual growth, ethical responsibility, and respect for diversity. Students are expected to demonstrate these characteristics in school and in the community.
