St. Paul’s is an independent K-8 day school located steps from Lake Merritt that welcomes families of all faiths.

Our philosophy:

1. Support fearless learning.
We create a trusting classroom community where students can approach our challenging curriculum with confidence and courage.

2. Community Engaged Learning is powerful.
We are deeply connected to the community around us. Through service learning projects, community partnerships, science curriculum centered on Lake Merritt, and more, St. Paul’s students apply what they learn in real contexts and for real audiences.

3. Deeper learning can be achieved by harnessing the power of diversity.
St. Paul’s is one of the most racially and socioeconomically diverse independent schools in the nation. Students develop a positive sense of identity, knowledge of those who have worked for equity, and a commitment to stand up for inclusion.

Our students graduate with skills, confidence, and a sense of purpose, prepared to be active citizens of the world.
