St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School in conjunction with St. Paul the Apostle Parish, creates a Catholic environment for students that proclaims the Gospel message, fosters community, celebrates the living God through worship and prayer, and encourages all to the service of others, while daily striving for academic excellence in all areas of the school curriculum.

School Philosophy

The philosophy of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School is based upon the teachings of Jesus Christ, and in conjunction with St. Paul's parish, the school will endeavor to provide the best possible Catholic education for the total student.  In partnership with the family, the parish, and the public, St. Paul the Apostle sees its goal as enabling all students to achieve increasing levels of academic accomplishments with positive growth in social and emotional well-being. We accept the responsibility by providing opportunities for all students to reach their maximum educational potential through a challenging and well-rounded curriculum.  Emphasizing mutual respect and trust, St. Paul the Apostle prepares students for life-long learning by empowering each one to develop self-esteem and discover each child's potential in a nurturing atmosphere that celebrates academic excellence and an appreciation for cultural diversity.  St. Paul the Apostle recognizes the value of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, including athletics, fine arts, journalism, technology, and student government in building Christian character by contributing to a spirit of cooperation and well-rounded personal development.
