Welcome from the Head of School

Thank you for visiting the St. Paul Christian Academy website. I hope you find this site informative and helpful in introducing you to the heartbeat of our school and to our excellent program offerings.

St. Paul Christian Academy, located in Green Hills, is an independent co-educational day school serving children in junior kindergarten through sixth grade.

As a private Christian school, St. Paul Christian Academy is a warm and nurturing environment where each child is known and loved. Our students are challenged to think and communicate excellently, to embrace a Christian way of living, and to lead effectively. Each day we live out our three-pillared mission through rigorous academics, fine arts, and extra-curricular activities.

Our children are prepared for, accepted into, and thrive in the best college-preparatory schools in the city of Nashville.  While we focus on creating an environment that children embrace as fun and engaging, we do so with a keen eye toward equipping our boys and girls for the academic, social, emotional, and spiritual challenges they will face at their next-level schools. 

I invite you to browse our site to see why so many families choose St. Paul Christian Academy. We are far more than an educational institution; we are a caring community that partners with our families to build each child's life foundation. 



Notes from the Head of School

  • Visit from Dr. Os Guinness

    Posted September 9, 2013

    Yesterday was a day to remember on our campus. In another, important step in the leadership training of our 6th graders, a hallmark of a St. Paul education, our oldest students were given a rare gift. They spent forty-five minutes of their afternoon listening to, being inspired by, and asking questions of Dr. Os Guinness. Dr. Guinness is a world-renowned author and social critic. He was born in China in World War II where his parents were medical missionaries. A witness to the climax of the Chinese revolution in 1949, he was expelled with many other foreigners in 1951 and returned to Europe where he was educated in England. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of London and his D.Phil in the social sciences from Oriel College, Oxford.(Click article title for more.)
