Our Education


Alternative Instruction Program

At St. Paul’s Episcopal School, our commitment to providing the highest quality college preparatory education in a Christian environment extends to all of our students.  While the standard-sized classroom works well for many students, the learning needs of some are better met in a small group environment providing more frequent interaction and closer supervision.

In response to these needs, St. Paul’s has created the Alternative Instruction Program (AIP), which provides an appropriate educational setting for students with diagnosed learning disabilities and/or attention disorders. The goal of this innovative and comprehensive program is to prepare these students to succeed in college.  Additional support includes our state of the art technology giving students more tools to enhance learning.

To qualify for our AIP program, a student must have a recent or updated diagnosis of a learning disability and/or attention disorder. Other data will also be taken into consideration as part of the admissions process such as standardized test scores, academic ability, observations, input from classroom teachers, work samples, and emotional or behavioral factors.

Student progress in AIP is assessed regularly to ensure that program enrollment adequately meets the student’s educational needs.

List of 2 items.

  • Tuition

    Enrollment in two or more AIP classes constitutes full-time enrollment. If a student needs only one class in the AIP, then she or he is considered to be enrolled in AIP part-time and tuition is adjusted accordingly. Please visit our tuition page for AIP tuition rates.
  • The AIP Evaluation Center

    The Center provides psycho-educational evaluations for individuals. The evaluation provides a profile of an individual’s strengths and weaknesses in cognitive, academic achievement, and language skills. The staff is also certified to evaluate for dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia.

    To learn more about AIP, contact our Admissions office or Director of AIP, Dr. Jane Herrin at 251-461-2176, or email jherrin@stpaulsmobile.net.
