Welcome to St. Paul’s Pre & Lower School

St. Paul's Pre and Lower School is a coeducational, independent day school serving children from 6 weeks through grade 4 in two buildings on our Brooklandville campus. At St. Paul's, we commit ourselves to matching the brilliant energy and enthusiasm of our girls and boys with immersive, hands-on opportunities that reward their intrinsic desire for new experiences. With a curriculum that incorporates global awareness, good citizenship, and social-emotional growth, we help our students discover their world—and themselves too. It’s never too early to begin adventuring, and the adventure starts here.

One of the most beloved traditions of the St. Paul's Schools, Lessons and Carols, will be in a virtual format this year. While we are unable to gather together at Old St. Paul’s Church for this year’s Lessons and Carols celebration, we are pleased to continue this time-honored service featuring traditional lessons telling the Christmas story.

We are excited to recognize our fourth grade students for their academic accomplishments as well as celebrate their contributions to the life of the school. Please click on the image below to be taken to the virtual ceremony.

Students Guide Their Learning Adventure Through W.I.N

At St. Paul's Lower School, learning is an adventure — and faculty are putting students in the navigation seat next to their teachers as co-pilots. If they need a little more time with the teacher to master a skill or want to delve deeper into a subject matter because it excites them, St. Paul's educators are making sure they get exactly what they need through the W.I.N. program.
