Upper School

The St. Paul’s School for Boys upper school offers an excellent education, utilizing a rigorous, creative, and collaborative approach that encourages students to think deeply and act decisively in the world. With its emphasis on critical thinking, intensive student-faculty interaction, and development of the whole person, the renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) Program offered in grades 11 and 12 is a fitting culmination of the St. Paul’s educational experience.

More than 75 courses at all levels of academic challenge, including 28 IB offerings, are available. Dozens more courses are available in coordination with St. Paul’s School for Girls. Outside of the classroom, students are given dozens of opportunities, from arts programs and athletics to college counseling support and global travel options, to build lasting relationships with the peers and teachers while pursuing their strengths and interests.

Three-quarters of our upper school teachers have advanced degrees. In the classroom, and on the playing fields as coaches, our faculty connect deeply with their students and forge meaningful, long-lasting relationships. By knowing their students on an individual basis, St. Paul’s faculty help each boy achieve at his highest possible level.
