  • St. Paul`s School is a co-educational, fully residential high school founded in 1856.
  • We are an Episcopal school, welcoming of all faiths, made up of approximately 540 students from all over the world.
  • We are a community of students and teachers and families, who live and learn together.
  • We try to live by our School Prayer, which urges kindness and an eagerness to "bear the burdens of others." St. Paul`s is academically rigorous, but staffed with teachers who take the time to know the whole student, whether in the classroom, in the dormitory, on the athletic fields, or along one of the many paths that wind through the 2,000 acre campus.
  • At the heart of our academic program is a commitment to learner-centered instruction in which students make discoveries for themselves with guidance from and in partnership with their teachers.
  • In the St. Paul`s classrooms, you will be surrounded by other students and teachers who share your passion for learning. You will be challenged by a curriculum that offers unsurpassed opportunities.
  • You will build the knowledge and skills that will carry you with confidence to college and beyond.
