Morning Chapel

Four mornings a week, students and faculty begin their day in Chapel. They gather to hear presentations and personal narratives from members of the ASP community and from guests, sing, and reflect on current events. Although St. Paul’s School is affiliated with the Episcopal Church, the Chapel program is ecumenical and inclusive in expression and practice.


Following the 8:30 a.m. Chapel, classes begin at 9 a.m. and run through lunch, with fresh air and conversation during Fruit Break mid-morning. Afternoons include a 90-minute rec period and plenty of downtime before jumping into the evening’s homework.

Recreational Activities

During rec, students can choose from a variety of activities, from strenuous, competitive soccer to quiet, contemplative yoga. They can run cross country or hone their rowing skills, setting off from the boat docks on Turkey Pond. Rec is meant to create new talents, develop current abilities, and create a deeper sense of community by allowing interaction with a broader swath of the community outside of classes and the dorm.


Coffee houses, theater performances, and study hall run after dinner — in the dorms, Ohrstrom Library, or Lindsay Center for Math and Sciences — until 10 p.m. Students then return to their dorms for further study, socializing in the common rooms, or to engage in weekly inter-dorm pizza feeds and serenades. With the exception of Saturdays, lights-out is at 11 p.m.
