The process of choosing a school for your child is a challenging and difficult one. As you embark on this process of discernment I hope you will consider St. Paul Catholic School of Princeton. With a rich history dating back to 1880 when the Sisters of Mercy founded our school, we are Princeton’s first and only co-educational Catholic elementary school. Our mission is to provide sound spiritual, educational, moral, ethical, and social teachings. Our research based Pre-K3-8 school model provides a nurturing learning community. St. Paul School is a Catholic school that is committed to teaching the message of Jesus and the truths of the Catholic faith, while providing the highest level of a challenging academic program.
St. Paul School curriculum is designed to meet and exceed the Trenton Diocesan and New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards for Education. We provide a rigorous curriculum in state of the art facilities right in the heart of Princeton. Our dedicated, experienced faculty model lifelong learning through ongoing professional development. Graduates of St. Paul School attend top private and public high schools. Class sizes are small and provide for individual attention and active learning experiences. The ultimate goal is to enable students to become independent learners and thinkers who can apply what they have learned in real-life situations. We emphasize going beyond the school walls with an extensive field trip and assembly program to bring quality curricular and extra-curricular activities to our students.
For over 135 years St. Paul School has been setting a standard for education in the Princeton area. We are proud to provide an outstanding educational opportunity for our students in a nurturing, faith embedded community and we look forward to the opportunity to share it with your family.
