Saint Paul the Apostle School

Saint Paul the Apostle School has served the Dallas community for multiple generations.
One thing that hasn't changed during that time is our simple focus: to nurture our children spiritually, academically, and socially as members of our Catholic community. The mission of Saint Paul the Apostle School is to proclaim the gospel message, to build community, and to educate to service. Within the school community, the priests, staff, parents, and students experience what it means to live a life of prayer, community, and personal responsibility.
The philosophy of Saint Paul the Apostle School states that the school shares the responsibility with the parents for the religious, intellectual, moral, physical, esthetic and social formation of children.
It is the fundamental goal of Saint Paul the Apostle School to assist the families to develop values, so that the children may apply Christian principles to all facets of their lives.

St. Paul was such a wonderful experience for me. They emphasize family involvement, which has led to a great community overall. Great education at a reasonable price. What more could you want?
