Important Notice

For 60 years, St. Paul School faculty, staff and administrators have worked in partnership with parents to build a faith-filled Catholic school experience for students in PreK through Grade 8. Over the past several years, St. Paul School has faced a steady decline in enrollment. An attempt to secure solid commitments from parents for the upcoming school year was not sufficient. 

Sadly, it is not possible for St. Paul School to open in September.  

We are sorry to share such difficult news, and appreciate the efforts of all who did their best to keep the school open. 
We offer our heartfelt gratitude to our St. Paul School families, and to our dedicated teachers, aids and administrative staff, for your commitment to Catholic education. We will do everything we can to support everyone involved in hopes of easing the transition forward.
