Student-led and community-supported, from conception to presentation to reflection.
Our community exercises skill, purpose, and empathy to connect on campus and in the neighborhood as active citizens and good humans.
Chapel fuels our capacity for connection.
One of the best times to see everyone is on Friday mornings when we all come together for 45 minutes. Each grade level--Kindergarten through Eighth Grade--leads two curriculum-based Chapels throughout the school year. Chapel provides opportunities for students to share their voices and be heard by their community.
An Episcopal School is first and foremost an academic community; it’s a place where learners gather to grow as scholars and citizens. While no two schools are the same, Episcopal schools share the following characteristics:
- A commitment to the overall health and well-being of its students, faculty, families, and neighbors.
- Academically substantive education about the world’s religious and spiritual traditions, with the goal of empowering students to find their own path.
- A curriculum and culture that inspires students to work for equity and justice in the world; learning through community service plays a central role.
- Regular chapel gatherings that are creative, inclusive, age-appropriate, and rooted in the Episcopal tradition.
At St. Paul’s Episcopal School, we embody these characteristics and express them in the vibrant spirit of our local community. Our student-led chapels feature themes from the classroom, from cultural celebrations like Dia de los Muertos to explorations of identity and the importance of friendship. We cultivate a caring atmosphere where students learn from and about religious traditions beyond their own, and are encouraged to discover their own truth. We do not teach or promote religion.
Through our membership with the National Association of Episcopal Schools, we are connected to schools like ours throughout the world.

Our school's mission is inextricably connected with its location, which we share with the Church. And yet, our school was not designed to be a parochial school. Our relationship with St. Paul's Episcopal Church can be defined by a shared commitment to social justice.
