Mission Statement

We, the school community of St. Paul, in the belief that we are Instruments of God, will provide opportunities for Education, Prayer, Service, and Celebration to experience and spread the Gospel Message of Love.

Statement Of Philosophy

An essential mission of the St. Paul school community is to spread the Gospel message of love by providing opportunities for education, prayer, service, and celebration. Living that Gospel message, parents, students, and teachers work together toward the formation of a community of faith.

We build on our strong tradition of academic excellence while implementing the latest in teaching and learning techniques to strengthen the students' spiritual, intellectual, emotional, moral, physical, aesthetic, and social development. The curriculum is organized to teach, reinforce, enrich, and extend the basic skills in a way that meets the individual needs of each student.

Opportunities for daily prayer in the classrooms, our weekly all-school celebration of liturgy, and sacramental preparation are supplemented by numerous paraliturgical experiences throughout the seasons of the Church year and in response to the needs of the community.

As part of our formation as a faith community, we provide opportunities to continue the mission of Christ by serving, loving, and caring for others. Through our school-family program, we work toward respecting diversity and creating a welcoming atmosphere.

Realizing that parents are the primary educators of their children, the St. Paul school community accepts the responsibility of working with them in a bond of unity and cooperation.

We believe that Catholic-school education is:

  • A stepping stone to a better and faith-filled way of life
  • A preparation for young people to handle the challenges of this world in a Christ-like manner
  • Essential to the life of the Church-at-large
  • A gift to the Church and to the world
  • A spiritual lifeline in a complicated, challenging world
  • A way to educate the whole person for service in a world so desperately in need of kindness, compassion, and 'otherness'
  • An important opportunity for society to experience God's call-our vocation-our charism
  • A privileged means of building community among students, faculty, and parents
  • Vital to the future of the Catholic Church in training and empowering tomorrow's leaders to act justly, love tenderly, and walk humbly with God
  • A faith journey . . . a hope journey . . . a love journey
