We are a Catholic co-educational elementary school serving students in grades Pre-Kindergarten 3 year olds to 8th grade. Founded in 1948, St. Paul Catholic School is a part of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church and the Catholic Diocese of Memphis.
We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children, and positive collaboration with parents is integral to the success of our students and their life-long learning.
School families receive regular communications from teachers, the School Office and the Administration.
Students experience strong academic growth through rigorous curriculum, including instruction in core academic subjects and daily religion classes. The programs also integrate art, music, health, technology, and STEM. Students at all grade levels enrich their experiences by taking part in the camaraderie of sports, clubs and community service projects.
St. Paul Catholic School takes pride in the depth of diversity within our student population. Visitors to our campus see happy students who care about their classmates like family, for that is one of the ways we describe our school community – a family. St. Paul Catholic School welcomes students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies and scholarship programs, athletic and other school-administered programs.
We are committed to spiritual growth and development. Mass with students is celebrated once a week. Daily morning prayers are held in the gym and open to parents. In the 2nd grade, we prepare students for the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist. In 8th grade, we prepare the students for the sacrament of Confirmation.
Our Pre-K program strives to provide a loving Christian environment which nurtures a sharing, cooperative approach to learning and problem solving.
Course work includes Religion through a systematic religious instruction provided daily for all students and as an integral part of everyday living.
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd
An approach to the religious formation rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. Children gather in an “atrium,” a room prepared for them, which contains simple yet beautiful materials they can use.
