  • The mission of St. Paul's is to provide a high quality Catholic education to students and guide each child to reach his or her full potential.
  • St. Paul the Apostle School provides a safe and nurturing God-centered education, which fosters spiritual, intellectual, social, physical, and aesthetic growth and enables students to live out their Catholic faith as productive members of a global society.
