A Message from Dr. Edward M. Trusty Jr. 

head of School

In an ever-changing world, St. Paul's School for Boys remains focused on three key constants: our Episcopal roots, our focus on supporting and challenging boys, and our belief that learning is best achieved through meaningful connections between teachers and students. St. Paul's School for Boys is a small school that offers big opportunities.

Our beautiful campus and state-of-the-art facilities provide endless possibilities in academic, arts, and athletic programs. We have an exceptional faculty and staff, a diverse and talented student body, and a school community noted for its uncommonly strong bonds.

Our all-boys upper school offers rigorous curriculum offerings through a coordinated program with St. Paul’s School for Girls, as well as our unique Experience+ program, which takes learning beyond the classroom and campus. No other school in Baltimore offers the programs and opportunities that we have at The St. Paul’s Schools.

Our website will provide you a great deal of information about St. Paul’s, but to get a full sense of who we are, I urge you to contact us to learn more.
