We, the school community of St. Paul School, in the belief that we are Instruments of God, will provide opportunities for Education, Prayer, Service, and Celebration to experience and spread the Gospel Message of Love. An essential mission of the St. Paul school community is to spread the Gospel message of love by providing opportunities for education, prayer, service, and celebration. Living that Gospel message, parents, students, and teachers work together toward the formation of a community of faith. We build on our strong tradition of academic excellence while implementing the latest in teaching and learning techniques to strengthen the students' spiritual, intellectual, emotional, moral, physical, aesthetic, and social development. The curriculum is organized to teach, reinforce, enrich, and extend the basic skills in a way that meets the individual needs of each student. Opportunities for daily prayer in the classrooms, our weekly all-school celebration of liturgy, and sacramental preparation are supplemented by numerous paraliturgical experiences throughout the seasons of the Church year and in response to the needs of the community. As part of our formation as a faith community, we provide opportunities to continue the mission of Christ by serving, loving, and caring for others. Through our school-family program, we work toward respecting diversity and creating a welcoming atmosphere. Realizing that parents are the primary educators of their children, the St. Paul school community accepts the responsibility of working with them in a bond of unity and cooperation.
