“St. Paul provided a foundational experience for me that I will never forget. My teachers were encouraging and taught me how to have a passion for learning that allowed me to be completely equipped for middle and high school and beyond. One of the greatest values that I learned from St. Paul is that leadership means listening to others and serving them—ultimately, putting the best interests of others above yourself.”

About Our School

Lower School (Junior Fours - 2nd Grade)

Lower school begins in junior fours and continues through second grade. The early elementary years are incredibly formative for children’s academic, social, and spiritual growth. We immerse these young students in a supportive and nurturing learning environment. We seek to cultivate active and creative learners through a developmentally appropriate curriculum, creating habits and values that are relevant and long lasting.

Upper School (3rd Grade - 6th Grade)

In the upper school, the academic curriculum remains anchored in the four core disciplines of mathematics, language arts, science, and history. Third graders receive instruction in each discipline from one homeroom teacher, while the fourth, fifth, and sixth-grade students rotate through subject-specific faculty, rather than staying with a single teacher. Fourth through sixth-grade homeroom teachers serve as subject-matter experts in a core discipline. This structure allows us to focus more intently on each academic area to prepare students for entrance into, and success within, the most selective college preparatory schools in Nashville.


"I am delighted that your family is considering St. Paul! With two children of my own attending St. Paul, I have witnessed firsthand over the past seven years the lifelong foundation St. Paul has steadfastly provided to foster my children's success. I am passionate about sharing this unparalleled opportunity with your family."
