Values that Endure

Our 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.

about us

Why St. Paul? 

Academic Rigor

St. Paul welcomes children into a dynamic academic environment where teachers challenge and encourage students to love learning, demonstrate disciplined scholarship, and discover their talents and passions.


The central pillar of St. Paul is our belief in Christ as Lord and the authority of scripture, and we are committed to helping students discover and develop their God-given gifts and talents.

Individual Student Attention

From the moment a student steps onto our campus, they will be part of a community where they are individually known. We partner with families to help students reach their highest potential and will guide them to become young leaders.
