Getting to Know St Paul’s Academy
At St. Paul’s, we celebrate a love of challenging questions, rigorous inquiry, free expression, and service to others. We limit class size to ten at Little Epistles Preschool, 15 students for grades K-5, and Middle School/ Upper School core classes may be larger, depending upon subject area. Classes will rarely exceed 18, thus ensuring that our students have more opportunity to ask questions and express themselves.
Little Epistles is the preschool division of St. Paul’s Academy. Our program offers varying schedules for toddlers through Pre-K and/or Jr. K, and is located at our facility a few blocks from our lower and upper school campuses. The philosophy of our preschool is that children learn through active participation, exploration, and self-discovery. We have a broad-based instructional curriculum with music and Spanish specialists. After class “Buddy” time options are also available, allowing for a maximum of four hours on campus per day.Learn More
The Lower School (Grades K-4) teaches students self-discipline and holistic awareness through a rich, challenging educational environment. We have a broad-based instructional curriculum with specialists in art, music, physical education and Spanish. Our small class sizes provide our students with individual attention and one-on-one support. The lower school program has learning outcomes that exceed state and national standards.Learn More
Fifth grade students benefit from art, music, physical education, and Spanish specialists and still have a homeroom teacher. Sixth grade through eighth grade use a block schedule with Literature and Language Arts as two separate subjects. Other disciplines (e.g., Science, Math, Social Studies, Art, Choir/ Band, Physical Education, and Spanish) use the curriculum as a standard and often provide real life application to expand student thinking. Subjects can have linked collaborative curricula, which provide real world application for students. This flexible program integrates diverse subjects with contemporary classroom management that enhances learning. Naturally, this helps students become better researchers and scholars.
Our program aims to graduate motivated young scholars who are ready for university and have intentional post upper school plans. To that end, we offer broad, rigorous training in the liberal arts and sciences. We stress independent thinking, writing, critical reading, self-discipline, and creativity. We have a broad-based instructional curriculum with specialists in art, music, physical education, Spanish and a selection of Advanced Placement optionsLearn More
