The world could use a few more

A lot more. Every grade level at St. Paul’s focuses on a different area of community service, from veterans to the elderly to children in need. By the time they graduate, our students have done more for their neighbors than some people do in a lifetime.

The Learning Through Service program at St. Paul’s Episcopal School encourages a lifelong commitment in the student body to helping others. Through a variety of activities, St. Paul’s seeks both to create a sense of service within the school and to improve the community around us. Our Service Program is comprised of four branches: Service Leadership Class, Rutledge Fellows of Philanthropy, Little Saints Serving and Community Service. Each grade level from PreK through Twelfth has a specific focus area for which the students perform service. Most grade levels have a Service Day during which the entire grade participates in a project.
