St. Paul Christian Academy integrates academic excellence with a passion for Christ to develop young leaders who uniquely shape the world in which they live. This mission statement is the lens through which decisions are made, from the Board level to the individual classroom. The three pillars of our mission, Academic Excellence, Passion for Christ, and Leadership Development define who we are and how our graduates are prepared to embrace the next phase of their school journey. Decision making is influenced by the following expectations:
St. Paul students and faculty pursue academic excellence in a loving and challenging environment where children learn to work hard while at the same time maintaining the wonder of childhood. We hold high expectations for our students, and our nurturing environment helps them meet those expectations to reach their highest potential.
Since St. Paul's founding, our Christian identity has been central to our mission. We believe that children are image bearers of God himself. We desire all of our students to come to know and to love God, to understand his Word, and to develop the wisdom, courage, and strength to walk in his ways. We seek to be an authentic Christian community, characterized by a passion for Christ. The curriculum and culture of our school reflect this through daily devotions, weekly chapel services led by students, Bible classes, and a variety of ministries to the community. We believe that God is calling all of our students to become Christian leaders in their homes, at their schools, in their future careers, and throughout their lives.
We equip our students to understand Christian leadership, and we give them opportunities to practice leading. St. Paul students lead chapel programs, help keep our campus clean, participate in service at every grade level, and mentor younger students in our buddy program. Additionally, in their capstone year, our sixth graders have new, daily opportunities to serve our school as they prepare to be leaders in their next schools and beyond.
The three-pillared mission of St. Paul influences each and every decision as we strive to maintain the strong foundation upon which the school was built while equipping students to be lifelong learners and leaders who pursue God's will in a rapidly changing world.
