About Us

Saint Paul School (SPS) is located on the main thoroughfare of Historic Princeton, New Jersey in an area of high competition from both the public and private sectors.

SPS was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1880 and is celebrating 140 years of academic and religious preparation. The tradition of the Mercy Sisters is evident in our school’s continued dedication to service and prayer.

St. Paul School was named a 2012 Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the US Department of Education. A Middle States and AdvancEd accredited school, SPS employs a staff of approximately 30 teaching faculty, all of whom are state-certified, with over 50% holding advanced degrees and multiple certifications. This dedicated staff views their work as a ministry and takes pride in their craft. SPS “walks the talk” by living its written mission everyday through the actions of the administration, teachers, parents and students.

St. Paul School's traditional core curriculum includes: Religion, Integrated Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. The curriculum is enriched with programs in Physical Education/Health, Technology, World Language (Spanish), Music, Art, and Library/Media.
