St. Paul’s Pre and Lower School, St. Paul’s School for Boys, and St. Paul's School for Girls share a 120-acre campus, an Episcopal affiliation, and a mission to develop the intellect and character of our students. The histories of the schools are deeply intertwined, resulting in a longstanding family-like relationship. However, before 2018, the governance structure was composed of two autonomous boards overseeing four corporate entities.
Following years of due diligence, the Boards of Trustees voted to unify the governance structure effective July 1, 2018. Unification means that one board works for the benefit of all students, whether they are part of the preschool, lower school, boys’ school, or girls’ school. Each school retains its distinctive identity, traditions, and mission while operating as part of a highly coordinated and collaborative system with one president.
This structure allows St. Paul’s to make the most of our unique model, where students learn in a small-school environment with the unparalleled opportunities that only a large campus can provide. As part of The St. Paul’s Schools, students benefit from a cohesive and sequential curriculum from preschool through grade 12, as well as access to a wide range of classes, facilities, and activities across campus. Students of all ages feel safe to stretch their capabilities while being inspired by the presence of older students and mentors.
Simply put, we are stronger together.
