Mission & Philosophy


St. Paul the Apostle School is a Catholic community of faith, committed to the development of the whole child. The lay and religious faculty share the responsibility with the parents for the students’ education, growth and well being. The school provides a challenging curriculum taught from a global perspective, by innovative and dedicated educators. The student population is drawn from the parish and surrounding communities.


Recognizing the parent as the primary educator, we, at St. Paul the Apostle School, seek to educate all who have been entrusted to us. We make no distinction in admittance regarding sex, race, color, racial or ethnic origin, or social position. We endeavor to meet the children at the level of their needs and to develop their intellectual, spiritual, psychological, social, emotional, physical, aesthetic, economic, and civic potential. We begin from the principle that our educational program is intentionally directed to the growth of the whole person.

In addition to being “School,” we are “Catholic.”

We, at St. Paul the Apostle School, believe that Catholic education is an expression of the mission given by Jesus to his Church. We strive to build strong character springing from a value-centered curriculum oriented toward our Catholic faith. Our faculty believes that as a Catholic school, we must attempt to create an environment which supports the parents’ responsibility to help their children become aware of the impact of God’s offer of salvation. This offer is realized in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and invites a response, which should flow through the school to the wider parish community.
