Our Mission

St. Paul's School Community is dedicated to educate our students in the Catholic Christian tradition.

It is our purpose to provide our students with quality instruction designed for high academic achievement and in the formation of faith in a safe and caring environment.

We encourage our students to become faith filled, well-educated, morally responsible individuals, who are prepared to make ethical choices for life.

Our Philosophy

St. Paul’s is dedicated to the education of its students and their faith development rooted in our Catholic Tradition in a safe and caring environment.

St. Paul’s School offers a solid curriculum based on the standards in religion, reading/literature, English, mathematics, science, and social studies of the Archdiocese of San Francisco.  The core curriculum is supplemented with art, music, physical education, Spanish, and technology.  It is through the learning environment and the relationships established between staff and students that Christian values and morals are taught.

Teachers at St. Paul’s School, as facilitators in the learning process, value working in partnership with parents to ensure each child has the opportunity to maximize his or her own potential.

St. Paul’s School offers the opportunity for students to grow beyond the classroom through service to our parish and the larger community, athletics, student government and other extra curricular activities.
