St. Paul’s has graduated more than our fair share of National Merit Scholars, major-league athletes, and award-winning artists, but we’re most proud of what’s harder to measure: the character of our students.
Every week, our students fan out in their communities, distributing food, volunteering at shelters, cleaning up, or tutoring. Wherever help is need, Saints lend a hand. And on campus? They treat one another with tolerance, compassion, and respect. These are the natural results of our Episcopal identity and our commitment to the spiritual and ethical growth of our students. True to our Episcopal tradition, St. Paul’s is grounded in Christian beliefs yet welcomes students of all faith backgrounds. Students and teachers gather weekly to attend chapel, and monthly for church services. These moments provide welcome shelter from the whirlwind of daily life, offering time to look inward and to focus on what we have done and left undone. They encourage us to think of loved ones and those in need. At St. Paul’s treating fellow students with dignity and respect is not merely talked about but is lived and taught. St. Paul’s Episcopal School at all times seeks to embody authentic Christian qualities of concern for and acceptance of others, compassion, generosity of spirit, and empathy. Our community service program rises from this worldview. In all we do, we instill in our students a reverence for humanity and a sense of personal responsibility, that they use their talents now and throughout their lives to serve others and the world in which we live.
