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.

We have been part of the St Paul community for four years. The education is exceptional. Teachers are excited to teach, working extra hard to prepare all the children. The after school activities give the children the ability to be exposed to many of the arts and actual participation in the sports they are interested in. Leadership continues to work on many improvements. There have been recent updates to the playground equipment and computers. They continue to listen to the needs of the families and encouraging the students to reach new goals! Our students consistently outperform others in testing. Graduates move on to many types of high school education and are well prepared. St Paul is Great!

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.
