Special Programs

Daily Chapel

As an Episcopal school, we value chapel, and we seek to awaken and instill spiritual values through daily services.

We start every morning with a community chapel experience. Students, parents, grandparents, special friends, alumni, and visitors gather together to share experiences, hear bible stories, learn life skills, sing, laugh, and get ready for a productive day. On Fridays, the entire school gathers in St. Paul's Episcopal Church for a more formal chapel experience.

Buddy Program

The Buddy Program focuses on building our school community by developing caring, trusting friendships and shared learning experiences between older and younger students.  Buddies work together for a range of special activities, lessons, and chapel experiences. While buddies read, write stories, and play games together, they are also growing into helpers, teachers, and role models throughout their time at St. Paul's. 

All of our students are positively impacted by the Buddy Program, but we feel our middle school students especially benefit from this experience. Our mission to develop ethical leaders who are compassionate and engaged citizens starts with these embedded special Buddy Program experiences.

"We must provide the opportunity for students to be the leaders of younger children, which they surely can be, if we give them the chance."
