Dear Families,

St. Paul's Episcopal School 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 students’ 2014 high school acceptances included Bentley, Bishop O' Dowd, College Preparatory School, Head-Royce, Lick-Wilmerding, and Athenian. Graduates from the St. Paul's class of 2010 will matriculate at many wonderful colleges and universities in the fall, including Harvard, Reed, Yale, Georgetown, Carleton, and UCLA.  

St. Paul’s has age requirements for acceptance to the School. For kindergarten, we adhere strictly to a September 1 birthday cut off. Please feel free to ask me about this policy.

The St. Paul’s Admissions process begins in the fall prior to the planned year of attendance. The applications process has three required steps: A tour of the School, the completion of an application, and an assessment. For details, please see the bar to the right.

We look forward to getting to know your family.
