In many ways, St. Paul’s School is like a college, but with support close at hand all hours of the day and night. Your teachers and fellow students are your neighbors with whom you will enjoy meals and pursue academic, athletic and extracurricular interests. They will not only help you succeed but also care about you during your time at the School, and beyond it.

Following “nerve-wracking” visits to several other independent schools, Blessing ‘22 says, “I started to learn about everything they had here — orchestra, languages, all of these clubs I was interested in — and started to get really excited.”

A St. Paul’s School education is possible for qualified students. We seek to build a diverse, equitable and inclusive community. About 39% of SPS famiies receive financial aid each year, and our grants meet full demonstrated financial need with no gaps. 

For 2022-23, tuition (inclusive of room and board) remains frozen at $62,000 for a third consecutive year.
