Why Saint Paul Catholic School

"Academically, Saint Paul not only prepared us for our high school classes but challenged us to attempt to succeed to the very best of our ability. There is always a focus on others, and even in our academics we are reminded of the blessings we have received and the gifts we have to offer. In many ways, Saint Paul has given us the strength to live our Catholic faith which is so very important in our lives today."

Katie Sherman, SPCS 2013

"The most obvious and wonderful benefits `{`we acquired at Saint Paul School`}` are spiritual. Starting in first grade, we prayed, said the rosary and prepared to receive the sacraments. In middle school, we helped at Opportunity Enterprise and spent time with seniors at St. Agnes. Our Family Friday program that took place once a month included an afternoon of activities with a group consisting of students from each grade. Family Friday gave the older students a sense of responsibility and the younger ones a sense of belonging."

Jake Sherman, SPCS 2012

"While the school provides students with a great education, it also provides them with many extra-curricular activities. Joining the speech team was one of the best choices I made; it’s really fun."

Lauren Moberley, SPCS 2013

"Student-teacher relationships like `{`the ones I’ve experienced`}` set Saint Paul apart...relationships of mutual respect and love centered around the common sense of a strong faith. These relationships make for the amazing classroom atmosphere, as well. Saint Paul gave me confidence in the classroom, and the benefits of this have been countless. Entering high school, I know that to succeed, the most important things were to never be afraid to ask a question, to never mindlessly accept what was taught, and to always keep an open mind. I thank Saint Paul `{`and`}` the wonderful educators there who instilled these values in me."

Mary Cobble, SPCS 2011

"Little did I realize what a faith based education would do for me in a public high school. Faith was always a part of our life at Saint Paul. We went to Mass two or three times each week, said daily prayers, and attended religion class on a regular basis. Faith was woven throughout everything we did. Our education provided a moral compass that we could use everywhere. Now that I am in high school, I am using that compass as I navigate through my classes, activities, and friendships."

Lucy Cobble, SPCS 2014

"There were 26 kids in Lucy’s and my graduating class, and now we’re at the high school with a class of about 500. One would think Valparaiso High School would be overwhelming coming from such a small school, but I can honestly say the size never intimidated me. Saint Paul taught me how to think for myself, form my own relationships, and join clubs and activities that created smaller groups within a school of 2200 students. High school has been an easy adjustment coming from a strong faith based background that instilled discipline and independence."

Grace Cobble, SPCS 2014

"The people that I met during my first day of fourth grade are some of the people I call my closest friends today. Not only was I making long lasting friendships, I was also developing the necessary educational tools to help me become successful. With the foundation that was built by my teachers at Saint Paul, I was able to go from being a below average student to receiving scholarships from the universities of my choice. In fact, I enjoyed going to a Catholic school so much, I will be attending a Catholic university this fall."
