Episcopal Tradition

THE FOUR PILLARS OF AN EPISCOPAL SCHOOL 

 

      

Chapel & Worship

We gather regularly in chapel and worship to pray, reflect, sing, give thanks to God. All are invited to participate, and all are affirmed. 

 
      

Equity & Justice

We are committed to actively pursuing the dignity of all people and living in service to God and others. Through service we strive for transformation and advocacy. 

 
      

Religious Education

We value the intellectual development of our students and see the study of religion as an academic pursuit. This is an essential component to developing global citizens.

 
      

Community

We live life together in the context of a loving community and encourage open engagement in meaningful and productive dialogue.

“Our community is guided by our Episcopal roots, core to which is the belief that every child is a child of God and that trust, understanding, and mutual respect lie at the heart of all that we do. St. Paul’s is committed to creating a supportive learning environment where all individuals are valued for their unique contributions. We strongly believe that a diverse and inclusive environment is the best learning environment for our students and prepares them to live, work, and thrive in an increasingly global and multicultural community.”

The Reverend Daniel Meck, Head Chaplain & Director of Spiritual Life 

DEI Initiatives


St. Paul's focus of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) work aims to strengthen the community by offering programs, affinity groups, and professional development opportunities that help students, faculty, and families build relationships, develop skills, and create a space where everyone feels valued and respected. Through our DEI initiatives, we strive to promote understanding, empathy, and collaboration among individuals of diverse backgrounds, ultimately enriching the overall educational experience for all members of our community.
