Saint Paul School strives to create a community based on sound Christian principles. The School works to build an environment whose foundations include the Mercy Core Values: respect, integrity, justice, compassion and service.
We understand that parents are the first teachers of their children, and we at Saint Paul School partner with you in your child's education.
Education extends beyond the classroom. We build a community that becomes a partnership between home and school.
In building this community, we expect positive speech, acceptance of personal responsibility, respectful interactions, and open communication that best serves all students and helps them become the people that God intends them to be.
When we interact with each other within the guidelines of the Mercy core values then we recognize that together we can live the words that Jesus taught us:
"I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do."
After many years of praying, planning and sacrificing, the dream of a parish has been realized.
The old hall on East Broad Street was the original church purchased in 1845. It formerly housed English troops and was used as a military barracks. In 1870 classes were held in the renovated basement of the church. The first school was built in 1904.
In 1924 the new St. Paul Church on East Union Street was dedicated.
Ground breaking for the present St. Paul School at Sixth and James Streets was held on April 5, 1959.
