Principal’s Welcome

Trevor Watkins, ASFC  ‘79

The academic offerings at Saint Paul’s School provide a rigorous core curriculum complemented by a wide variety of advanced placement, honors, and elective offerings designed to meet the varied interests and talents of our students. Beginning with the pre-freshman year, students must complete one unit of English, math, science, and religion. Before graduation, students must also complete four units of social studies, two units of a second language, two units of health and physical education, and one unit of fine art.

Beginning in their freshmen year, students choose among several multi-year elective tracks that include advanced second language classes, art, music, theater, engineering, biomedical sciences, business, and law.  Several other elective choices are available to students who may want to choose a more varied elective route.

Advance Placement and Honors classes are available across all subject areas, and students are actively encouraged to challenge themselves by enrolling in these more demanding classes. AP class offerings include

  • American History
  • Art History
  • Biology
  • Calculus AB
  • Calculus BC
  • Civics
  • CSP (Computer Science Principles)
  • CSA (Computer Science – Programming)
  • English Literature
  • English Language and Composition
  • Statistics

 

Our faculty is an outstanding group of Christian Brothers and lay men and women, and the majority of our faculty members hold advanced degrees in their teaching fields. Because an integral part of the Lasallian Charism includes educating the whole student, almost all of the teachers at Saint Paul’s are involved in at least one extracurricular activity.

Saint Paul’s is part of an international tradition dating back to 1680 and to our founder, Saint John Baptist de La Salle; therefore,  all staff take part in Lasallian formation in the rich teaching tradition of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. In fact, several teachers have completed various advanced Lasallian programs of study.

In a word, our instructors and support staff are committed to providing relevant, rigorous and value-centered instruction to every student entrusted to their care. It is the goal of Saint Paul’s School to provide a human and Christian education to all.
