Saint Paul the Apostle School has a proven record of providing 'Excellence in Education' to students PreK3 through 8th grade in a nurturing Catholic community. As children progress academically, they are encouraged to reach their full potential both in their studies and in their own spiritual formation. The experience of our faculty, who on average have been teaching at Saint Paul for 10 years, combined with strong parental involvement enable us to succeed in our school mission.

 

Saint Paul School uses the Diocese of Dallas Curriculum Standards. Dallas Catholic schools are fully accredited by the Texas Catholic Conference Education Department under the auspices of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools and the Texas Education Agency. The Saint Paul School Curriculum includes Religion, English, Reading/Literature, Spelling, Handwriting, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Music, Spanish, Physical Education, and Technology.

 

PreK3, introduced in 2012, extends the school's Early Childhood Education Program to include three year old students. The program supports families with multiple children and allows more families to look to Saint Paul School to meet all of their educational needs.
