At St. Paul’s, we believe the spiritual care of a child is of the utmost importance. We teach God’s Word in its truth and purity by instructing our students in the Bible’s fundamental Christian doctrines and equipping them to apply Scriptural truths to their lives. As such, we are committed to assisting the parents by providing a quality, Christ-centered education to the children entrusted to our care and instructing them in God’s plan of salvation.

  1. Gospel Centered
    Keep Christ and his Gospel central to everything we do at St. Paul’s.
    For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. (1 Corinthians 2:2)

  2. Christian Teaching & Living
    Teach the truth of God’s Word faithfully while modeling Christian life to students and their families.
    Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers. (1 Timothy 4:16)
  3. Christian Environment
    Provide a safe and supportive Christian environment in which the child may grow spiritually, academically, socially, and emotionally.
    Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6)
  4. Academic Excellence
    Ensure academic excellence to prepare children to be productive Christian citizens.
    Whatever you do, do if from the heart, as something done for the Lord. (Colossians 3:23)
  5. Well-Rounded
    Enrich our students’ learning by providing opportunities for extra-curricular activities, including academic, fine arts, and sports related activities.
    For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. (1 Timothy 4:8)
  6. Evangelism Minded
    Serve as an active mission arm of St. Paul’s congregation and maintain an active presence in the community.
    But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9)
