Student Profile

The St. Paul’s School for Boys Student and Faculty Profile was created following a yearlong study by the Academic Council, informed by the insights of faculty in all divisions of the school. Discussions centered on the meaning of the St. Paul’s School for Boys mission – “Seek truth, knowledge, and excellence; live by faith, compassion and integrity” – and how the school strives to fulfill this mission every day in our teaching of and connection with students.

The Student and Faculty Profile connects the primary words of the mission to characteristics that St. Paul’s believes should be, and are, exhibited by all teachers and students, in age-appropriate ways, from sixth grade through senior year. We hope our teachers will model these attributes and our students will strive to attain these characteristics as they mature and grow throughout their years at St. Paul’s.
