St. Paul's School (SPS) provided an enriching and incredibly memorable high school experience that prepared me exceedingly well for the challenges of college. The sense of community at SPS is unlike any other institution because it is 100% boarding. Students are able to grow up emotionally, academically, and athletically while learning alongside each other. Faculty also live on campus so students always have a helping hand to guide and support them. Balancing schoolwork, sports, music, art, and other extracurricular activities teaches time management and self-discipline. It was a privilege to attend St. Paul's and I continue to benefit from the skills I learned during my four years there.

SPS prepared me to successfully compete in a challenging and demanding world. The best 3 years of my educational life. I'm grateful to my parents for making it possible for me to attend such an extraordinary institution of higher learning. The history and traditions, faculty, student body and campus are all without compare.

it was tough but it was great you find out how great as the decades pass

II am both an alum and a parent. SPS is quite difficult to get into, but those that do should attend without hesitation! What a school. The students are diverse, exceptionally bright, and as warm and welcoming as you could dream for. It is small enough to be a family but large enough to embrace a variety of personalities. SPS does not have any 'PG's' or day students, both of which can diminish a school's sense of community. It has the most consistent and exemplary record of college admissions of any American boarding school. I have had members of my family at Andover Exeter-Groton-Deerfield, but SPS edges out all of those.

St. Paul's School is one of the best high schools in the world. And if you are looking for the best, college-prep, Christian boarding school, this is it. St. Paul's is full of smart, high-achieving students who are college bound...40% IVY. The liberal Episcopal church frameworks gives St. Paul's a moral compass while allowing students of various faiths and religions to happily co-exist. However if your child is spiritual he/she will thrive here. As a parent it is a difficult decision to send your child away. But if you have a gifted child who wants to participate in sports and do theater, debate, or music, he/she does not have to be forced to pick one and abandon the other. Its unique all-residential student body allows its students a greater depth of activities than other prestigious prep schools. In loco parentis is taken seriously.




- a
I currently attend SPS, and I love it. The classes are incredibly challenging which can be stressful at times. But the community is what I love most--I feel more at home here than I have anywhere else. The freedom they allow us, does inspire a sense of responsibility and forces us to be independent and a leader while still appreciating the support provided by teachers and friends.



- a
I'm an alumna of St. Paul's and can say that it provided the most rigorous and supportive foundation for learning possible. I agree with the more current assessments here - it's not for the faint at heart, the wimpy or the passive 'follower.' Everyone doesn't need to be a Type A, but those who get a lot out of St. Paul's are those who are self-motivated, are driven to excel and have a strong sense of self.
