Mission Statement

The St. Paul the Apostle School Advisory Board is a body representative of the school community dedicated to supporting the philosophy and mission of the school. The School Advisory Board acts as a resource to the Principal and the Pastor, providing advice on matters of finance and school policy. It helps strengthen the present and secure the future well-being of the school as a provider of quality Catholic education.


The School Advisory Board meets regularly nine times during the school year on a monthly basis (September through June, December excepted). Meeting agendas are prepared by the Chair in consultation with the Principal.


The School Advisory Board is composed of nine voting members who serve for a term of three years with the opportunity to renew for another three years. In addition to the voting members, there are additional non-voting alternate members as well as non-voting ex-officio members; including the Pastor, the Principal, a representative of the school faculty, a representative of the PWC (Parents Working for Children), a representative of The Sister Stella Foundation, and a representative of the Parish Finance Council.
