Mission Statement

At St. Paul of the Cross elementary school, we are committed to our education and Christian community in which we are challenged to achieve academically, develop spiritually, and serve selflessly.


St. Paul of the Cross School bases its existence on the Great Commission of Our Lord Jesus Christ, “Go and make disciples of all nations…in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit…teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you…I am with you always, until the end of age” (Matthew, 19-20). We integrate into our philosophy the impassioned, evangelical spirituality of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who embodies the Gospel values on which we build all aspects of our school community.
