St Paul Catholic School

3007 Country Club Rd
New Bern, NC 28562-0285
Tel: (252)633-0100
Grades: PK - 8 | 172 students
St. Paul Education Center's academic foundation is based on the principles of self-learning, decision-making, and peace-making as well as teaching basic skills in each academic area.
In order to strengthen the learning process, parents need to be actively involved in continuing the process at home through review and reinforcement.
Each child is also encouraged to integrate and apply these skills to new and challenging situations.
Creative and critical thinking skills that will help the child deal with the complexities of the modern world are the anticipated results of such principles.
St. Paul community strives to follow the example of Jesus Christ as He prayed and worked among the people of His time, and we strive to foster the spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth of our members.
Sacramental participation and liturgical celebrations aid in the spiritual deepening of these examples.
To extend the theory of Christian living to real experiences, activities centering around classroom and community service are encouraged.

School Reviews

We have been very happy with St Paul for the 2011 year. There are many opportunities and the Kindergarten teacher is extremely warm and yet professional. I highly recommend this school to anyone.
