High school is an exciting time for SPS students. There is so much to learn and to experience. Adjusting to SPS life takes some time for both students and their parents. The St. Paul’s School community’s carefully woven network supports every student according to their individual needs. Advisers, teachers, heads of house, the Chaplaincy, health center, and the Dean of Students Office work together to ensure that each child is adjusting to boarding school life while learning how to balance their interests in academics, athletics, the arts, and among new friends. Your student's support system includes:Advisers
Your student’s adviser is your first point of contact whenever you have any questions – large or small -- about your child’s life at St. Paul’s. Adviser/student relationships are built on mutual trust in which students can openly discuss their concerns regarding any and every aspect of school life. Heads of House and Prefects
Heads of House set the tone for their houses. They are experienced faculty members who are especially trained for their role. They work closely with your student’s adviser, Dean of Students Office, the prefects, and the health center to create a safe, inclusive, healthy residential environment. Each house also has prefects, student leaders who have been trained to serve as liaisons between the student and adult house community, helping to ensure that student residential life is inclusive and rewarding.Academic Support and Guidance
Advisers, coaches, heads of house, and faculty members meet regularly to review each student’s progress and growth. The Dean of Studies and Academic Support Office work together to customize student courses of study and help them reach their academic potential.
