Mission

St. Paul Christian Academy integrates academic excellence with a passion for Christ to develop a strong foundation for young leaders who uniquely shape the world in which they live.

Academic Excellence

St. Paul students and faculty pursue academic excellence in a loving and challenging environment where children learn to work hard while at the same time maintaining the wonder of childhood. We hold high expectations for our students, and our nurturing environment helps them meet those expectations to reach their highest potential. As a result, our children are well prepared for acceptance into the most competitive college-preparatory schools in Nashville, and each year finds our graduates thriving in every way at schools such as Brentwood Academy, Harpeth Hall, and Montgomery Bell Academy.

Passion For Christ

Since St. Paul's founding, our Christian identity has been central to our mission. We believe that children are image bearers of God himself. We desire all of our students to come to know and to love God, to understand his Word, and to develop the wisdom, courage, and strength to walk in his ways. We seek to be an authentic Christian community, characterized by a passion for Christ. The curriculum and culture of our school reflect this through daily devotions, weekly chapel services led by students, Bible classes, and a variety of ministries to the community.

Leadership Development

We believe that God is calling all of our students to become Christian leaders in their homes, at their schools, in their future careers, and throughout their lives. We equip our students to understand Christian leadership, and we give them opportunities to practice leading. St. Paul students lead chapel programs, help keep our campus clean, participate in service at every grade level, and mentor younger students in our buddy program. Additionally, in their capstone year, our sixth graders have new, daily opportunities to serve our school as they prepare to be leaders in their next schools and beyond.
