Why Give?

We are appreciate your continued support for St. Paul’s Academy. Your gifts contribute to current and future generations of academically eager and willing students. A strong tradition of support from alumni, parents, and friends helps ensure that all students continue their journey beyond St. Paul’s Academy, taking with them a solid foundation that will support them in their future endeavors.

Tuition at St. Paul’s Academy covers approximately 62% of the total cost of educating a student: the balance is made up through contributions from donors like you.

Annual Auction

The Grand Cru Auction and Gala: Imagine our World of Possibilities was held on Saturday, January 26th at the Four points by Sheraton Hotel. Marking the 22nd anniversary of our auction, this event continues to be the largest fundraiser for St. Paul’s Academy. This year’s event raised an impressive $500,000 from our generous guests and donors. The majority of the proceeds will fund the school’s general operating budget. Proceeds from the raise-the-paddle appeal fund the school’s tuition assistance program. This helps to ensure that St. Paul’s Academy can continue to offer superior programs and quality education to each of its students at an affordable cost.

Proceeds from the Dessert Dash will help fund the 8th grade trip to England this spring.

St. Paul’s Academy relies heavily on the time and energy of its many generous volunteers. The school is fortunate that parents and students alike consider volunteering an important part of the St. Paul’s experience. Volunteers help lower our operational costs and help keep tuition affordable.

The main avenue for volunteering is through the parents’ group called PALS (Parents Actively Lending Support). Please see the calendar for a list of upcoming volunteer activities and events.

The annual Auction also needs volunteers October through January to assist with that event.
