Admissions

Welcome

Welcome!

Welcome! We're delighted that you're including our school in your search, and we look forward to helping you learn more about St. Paul's.

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. We fully and actively support equal opportunity for all people, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
 

Our admissions process begins in the fall prior to the planned year of attendance. To begin the admissions process, please submit an inquiry. We look forward to getting to know your family.

Warmly,

Nicole Start and Simrita Dhanjal
