Voice. Intellectual curiosity. Creativity. Confident leadership.

These are qualities we cultivate every day through a St. Paul’s education, as we prepare our students to be the innovators of tomorrow.

Our faculty are forever imagining and reimagining the possibilities of a 21st-century education in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). Now we are embarking on an ambitious effort to break down traditional silos of learning with an interdisciplinary discovery center that celebrates inquiry and collaboration.

With a focus on creative problem solving, applied technology, and the fluid exchange of ideas, our students will discover ways to improve the world.

STEAM Stories: Head of School Ereni Gleason Malfa '89

Head of SPSG Ereni Gleason Malfa '89 discusses her background as a woman in the sciences and shares her vision for interdisciplinary discovery and STEAM education at St. Paul's.

"I see our students finding ways to improve the world through research, design, and experimentation. We want them to try new things, fail, and try again. They may learn there is not always an answer, and in that, they gain the confidence to think more broadly."
