The foundation of our academic philosophy at St. Paul is to prepare students for the future by providing a rigorous academic curriculum within the framework of a strong spiritual community. The primary focus at St. Paul is to prepare our students to excel academically while developing a sense of Christian community.
Academics at St. Paul begin within the framework of the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills). Additional skills and knowledge standards are added to the TEKS to incorporate student needs as determined by various assessment tools, faith development, and Christian world views. Daily prayers, Bible study classes and contact with Christian teachers give students the opportunity to grow closer to Jesus while preparing for high school and beyond.
In addition to the standard curriculum, St. Paul also offers activities and learning experiences outside of the traditional learning experience in hands on group and personal settings. Some of these activities are optional students but all are welcome and encouraged to elect to participate to receive an education that sets them up for future success in life.
Students that have participated in the past have used their skills and experience to apply themselves to disciplines, such as Music, and have been invited to prestigious groups outside of St. Paul.
