A Message From the Principal

Saint Paul Catholic School offers a rigorous classical education in a warm and caring environment.  We consider the three keys to our success to be: Christ, Family and Academics.

Christ: Our Catholic identity is important to us. Our Catholic education fosters the formation of the whole child in mind, body and spirit.

Family: We create a school family where our teachers build on the foundation of respect and kindness you've established at home. We welcome new people to our family!

Academics: We set high expectations for our students. We offer a challenging curriculum that can be individualized for each student.

Our biggest strength is our sense of community. We welcome parents to volunteer and encourage parents to get to know our teachers. We reach out to our larger community through service projects.

Deacon David Kierski


Saint Paul Catholic School is a ministry of Saint Paul Parish. We are dedicated to the spiritual, intellectual, physical and social development of each student. Saint Paul strives to educate the whole child and welcomes students of all faiths.


Our students attend Mass each Wednesday morning. Our younger students have Mass buddies from our older students which creates wonderful relationships that grow throughout the year. The choir for this service is made up of our students. Our students also have Religious Education classes and have the opportunity for reconciliation and adoration.


We have a highly educated group of teachers who create a wonderful learning environment for our students. Our small class sizes enable us to provide an attentive educational experience.


Our students compete in a variety of extracurricular clubs and sports. In addition, they join writing and other academic contests. As mentioned before, students participate in various community service projects throughout the year.
