Our History

St. Paul Christian Academy was founded in 1971 with 118 students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Since then, our student body and campus have grown significantly. We now serve more than 345 students from junior kindergarten through 6th grade and have a faculty and staff of more than 75 employees. 

St. Paul is accredited by the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS) and is a full member of the Council on Educational Standards & Accountability (CESA).
