The philosophy of St. Paul the Apostle School states that the school shares the responsibility with the parents for the religious, intellectual, moral, physical, esthetic and social formation of children.
It is the fundamental goal of Saint Paul the Apostle School to help the families develop values, so that the children may apply Christian principles to all facets of their lives.
The Pre-Kindergarten program focuses on developing the whole child as a unique gift from God. Each day the children participate in a variety of activities that include whole group, small group, and individual learning. The language-based program offers experiences in stories, nursery rhymes, role-play, math, science, art, computers, and fine and large motor development. It includes movement, music, kinesthetic, tactile, auditory, and visual methods to teach to all learning styles. Parents provide morning snacks that help the children stay focused until lunch time. Outdoor recess and movement time in the gym provide ample opportunities for large motor development. Indoor centers allow for free choices and role-play to stimulate imaginations and further language development. Lunch is enjoyed in the school cafeteria and can either be purchased at the cafeteria or brought from home. Rest time follows lunch and an afternoon of specials or recess, small groups, and centers complete our day.
