Welcome to Saint Paul
Brothers and Sisters…
In the Catholic tradition, this simple salutation accompanies the proclaiming of any letter written by Saint Paul. It is perhaps the one phrase most associated with Paul and his literary work. For Christians, this salutation is a unifying reminder: as brothers and sisters we form a bond in the belief that God calls each person to a life of faith. Human goodness and holiness begin here. And, this is where a Saint Paul Diocesan Jr/Sr High School education begins.
At Saint Paul, we are animated by the example of our patron saint and namesake. We are a mission-minded community of learners. We prepare our students to lead and serve as equals both in and beyond the classroom. We ready them for a promising future in college and career. We form young people of conscience as active participants in the life of the Church and society.
We do so through the pursuit of knowledge in light of the great Catholic intellectual tradition. Our emphasis on scholarship is witnessed in our Saint Paul educators who shape and support our students. More than 90% of our teachers hold an advanced degree, and the average tenure in education of a Saint Paul teacher is fourteen years. This expansive professional experience allows us to offer a diverse and enriching curriculum. For our inaugural graduating Class of 2021, 79% of students reported acceptance by their first-choice college or university.
Because our graduates are sent into the world to do great things, we believe their formative school years should reflect the world’s richness of diversity. Of our students, approximately 38% identify as non-white, 21% speak a language other than English at home, and 5% are international students studying abroad. The healthy worldview of our graduates is a reflection of the worldly crossroads of culture and experience found at Saint Paul each and every school day.
Our school’s motto is Fortior Unus which means, “Stronger Together.” A great education takes partnership and teamwork. Before any diploma is earned, or academic achievement is celebrated, or a first-team victory is won, there is this all-important first step in partnership and teamwork to take.
Are you ready for this step? If you are, we at Saint Paul look forward to walking with you to achieve all the good things that await you. Brothers and sisters, fortior unus!
All God’s blessings,
Michael J. Clark
Founding Head of School
