What Our Alumni Say
Welcome! St. Paul's is an independent K-8 day school that provides an education that is intellectually challenging and morally enriching. The School enrolls students from widely diverse cultural, religious, family, racial and socioeconomic backgrounds who are motivated to succeed and who, by the virtue of their character, will contribute to the life and spirit of the School.

Students are admitted on the basis of academic and social skills, developmental readiness, past school experience, recommendations and character. Kindergarten and sixth grade are primary entry points into the school.

Our admissions process begins in the fall prior to the planned year of attendance. Please see notes below about the steps in the process. We look forward to getting to know your family.
