The St. Paul’s Episcopal School curriculum charts the intellectual growth of our students, from the self-contained classrooms of the Lower School to the subject-specific classrooms of the Sixth Grade & Middle School, from concrete thinkers to abstract analyzers.

Informing every aspect of our curriculum are the values of our founders, who believed that keen analytical skills, a depth of knowledge, and a generous heart are essential qualities of an educated citizen. 

What you cannot always see among the curriculum bullet points are the interconnections with our three core educational principles.
  • First, as students engage with the rigorous curriculum, they also grow as fearless learners who know the value of a challenge and the confidence that comes from solving complex problems.
  • Second, the service learning projects they do deepen their understanding of their math, science, or social studies lessons and demonstrate first hand the importance of what they are learning.
  • And finally, their learning is deeper and more sophisticated thanks to the diverse viewpoints represented in their classrooms.

This is what having a strong social emotional program as the foundation for critical thinking, collaborating, higher level reasoning, and using math skills to solve problems looks like. 2022-2023 marks our third consecutive year where we are ahead of the curve!
