We are an Independent School
WE THINK DIFFERENTLY
Lead change - Embrace diversity - Champion inclusivity - Empower our community
Independent schools are non-profit private schools that are independent in philosophy: each is driven by a unique mission. They are also independent in the way they are managed and financed: each is governed by an independent board of trustees and each is primarily supported through tuition payments and charitable contributions. They are accountable to their communities and are accredited by state-approved accrediting bodies.

Our daughter arrived at Saint Paul's for eighth grade looking for a challenge.
She certainly found the challenges she wanted. Through the diligent nurturing
of the highly attentive and caring teachers and staff she proved to herself that she could excel!
I must stress the help and compassion with which our daughter was led to meet
Saint Paul’s unwavering high standards.
In retrospect, I wish that she had spent more time there, but I am grateful for the brief year
she got to experience as her introduction to the Saint Paul’s family.
