Tours and Open Houses


Taking a tour of St. Paul's is the best way to start learning about us! 

Tours are held during the school day. Administrators and current parents will guide you through our buildings. This is a time when you visit the classrooms and experience the pulse of the school. We are glad to offer weekly parent tours when the school is in session.

All our tours are from 8:45 - 10:30 a.m

Please note that our Kindergarten and Lower School Tours are for parents/guardians only.
