Philosophy & Mission


Saint Paul the Apostle is a vibrant Developmental Kindergarten through Eighth grade, co-ed, Catholic school community founded on the charisms of the Paulist Fathers and the Daughters of Mary and Joseph.

We begin from the principle that our educational program is intentionally directed to the growth of the whole person. At Saint Paul the Apostle School, we believe that Catholic education is an expression of the mission given to us by Jesus, which invites a response that flows through the school to the wider parish community. We strive to build strong character, springing from a value-centered curriculum oriented toward our Catholic Faith. We aim to instill academic and personal excellence. Our rigorous curriculum fosters critical thinking, high academic achievement and creativity, and includes participation in the arts, athletics, and the application of current technology. These essential principles prepare our students for graduation and to serve as outstanding contributors to society.

Mission Statement

Saint Paul the Apostle School, in partnership with parents, seeks to educate the whole child and empower its students with a strong foundation in the Catholic faith, instilling in them integrity, leadership, and service, rooted in social justice.  

Diversity and Inclusion

The school, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students regardless of race, color, national origin, and/or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, medical condition, gender, or national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies and practices, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs, although certain athletic leagues and other programs may limit participation and some archdiocesan schools operate as single-sex schools.

While the school does not discriminate against students with special needs, a full range of services may not always be available to them. Decisions concerning the admission and continued enrollment of a student in the school are based upon the student’s emotional, academic, and physical abilities and the resources available to the school in meeting the student’s needs.
