Flexible Tuition

Affording a St. Paul's Education

Since our founding, maintaining socioeconomic diversity among our students has been one of our central values. This diversity affords all our students a chance to learn more deeply, think more critically, and be better prepared to step into the world that awaits them after St. Paul's. To that end, we focus attention and resources on flexible tuition.

We know all families who select an independent school are choosing to invest in their child's education. If flexible tuition will help put that investment in reach, we encourage you to apply. More information is available when you come to the school for a tour or by contacting Simrita Dhanjal at 510-285-9617.
