Our Mission & Core Values

Educating Children
Academically, Spiritually, Morally & Socially

Welcome to Saint Paul School, the one and only Catholic School in McDonough County. Since 1902, we have remained committed to offering a comprehensive education to every child. Our mission is to educate each child academically, spiritually, morally, and socially in a Christ-centered environment.

At Saint Paul School, we believe that education goes beyond textbooks and exams. We strive to nurture the whole child, ensuring their intellectual growth and personal development, while also instilling in them a strong sense of faith and service. Our vision of "Raising Saints" resonates in everything we do, guiding our students towards becoming compassionate, ethical, and morally upright individuals.

Catholic School

As a Catholic School, our faith is at the core of everything we do. We provide a nurturing and supportive environment where students can deepen their relationship with God and grow in their understanding and practice of Catholic teachings. Our students attend mass every Friday and on holy days, allowing them to actively participate in the sacraments and fostering a strong foundation of faith.

With a small class size, our students benefit from individualized attention and a close-knit community. Our dedicated and highly-qualified teachers ensure that each student receives a quality education tailored to their unique needs. This personalized approach allows us to guide our students on their academic journey, fostering a love for learning and enabling them to reach their full potential.

Beyond Academics

We place a strong emphasis on character development and social responsibility. We strive to instill in our students a sense of compassion, empathy, and respect for others. Through various community service projects and outreach programs, our students actively engage in acts of kindness and service, making a positive impact in our local community and beyond.

Choosing Saint Paul School means choosing a community that upholds traditional Catholic values, while also fostering an inclusive and diverse environment. We welcome students from all backgrounds and faith traditions, embracing the richness that comes from being a united and cohesive community.
