St. Paul Catholic School

St. Paul Catholic School is committed to the fourfold purpose of Catholic education: message, community, worship and service.
We believe in the value of each child as a unique individual loved by God.
We strive to create an environment that will challenge the students to grow in their faith, to reach their fullest academic potential, to develop a healthy acceptance of self and a Christian respect for others.
Central to a child's growth and development is involvement in a faith community whose focus is the life and values of Jesus.
Within the context of this faith community, we offer quality religious and academic instruction.
We believe that religious instruction aids the students in deepening their faith and in forming a Christian conscience as the basis for their decision making.
We also believe that it is essential that students be offered the opportunity to acquire the skills, the knowledge necessary for their future role in society.
This can only be accomplished through quality academic instruction. The goal for which we strive at St. Paul is that our students, having experienced the person of Jesus and a sense of Christian community, will choose to live their lives based upon the values of the Gospel, that they will seek ways to use the talents and gifts they have developed in service to others and in building a peaceful, just society.
