Why St. Paul's?

Episcopal schools are known for excellent academics and are constantly seeking improvement and new challenges. In addition, Episcopal schools are intentionally small. With approximately 500 students, our teachers know students well and can adjust to meet diverse needs.

Some key differentiators for our school include: 

  • Future-focused academics
  • Daily chapel
  • Social emotional learning
  • Leadership development
  • Kindergarten-8th grade advantage

"St. Paul's was the best choice for our daughter for a few key reasons. One, they have a very strong academic program. They invest in the professional development for their teachers, keeping them current with best practices and resources to provide an engaging, challenging curriculum. Two, the low class sizes allow teachers to meet the individual needs of children. " Current St. Paul's parent
