7th Grade Placement

Parents considering St. Paul consider not only what St. Paul offers their children directly, but also what opportunities their students are likely to have for secondary education.

Class of 2015 Next Schools

St. Paul students are among the most competitive students for admission to the leading college-preparatory secondary schools in Nashville. Schools receiving the greatest numbers of St. Paul graduates over the past 3 years are Montgomery Bell Academy (7th-12th), Harpeth Hall (5th-12th), and Brentwood Academy (6th-12th). Some students also transfer to kindergarten through twelfth grade schools such as The Ensworth School, Lipscomb Academy, and Franklin Road Academy.

We are proud of how well our students are prepared for the application and interview process as well as the academic challenges of their next-level schools.
