Saints are more colorful
than you might imagine.

Creativity matters at St. Paul’s. You’ll see it on the walls. In the halls. In the tissue paper action figures, pointillism bugs, and tessellations! Everywhere you look, the arts are alive and kicking. In truth, you won’t find a more creatively inspired student body anywhere. (We have the local, state, and national honors to prove it.)

Fine Arts

Artistic expression is a hallmark of a St. Paul’s education. Our students act in exquisite productions, produce beautiful sculptures and paintings, and create remarkable photographs.

A tremendous body of research stands in support of the benefits of a superb arts education for our students. Through focusing on being intentional and purposeful with our arts education our students show improved academic performance, greater leadership and social skills, advanced creative problem solving, and an overall enhanced ability to compete in a 21st century workforce. An arts based education also results in the positive effects of increases in school attendance, student motivation and a child’s sense of belonging. Boasting the national, state, and local honors to prove it, you will not find a more creatively inspired student body anywhere. It is just part of the end result of a purposeful arts education curriculum.

Just as the great artists of the Renaissance glorified God through their works of art so to do our students get to display their love of God and one another as they create magnificent sculptures, perform classical pieces on their strings, and capture magical moments in their photographs. Our Saints know what matters and a classical arts education enables them to display this valuable knowledge to the rest of the world.
