Why Basilica School of St. Paul?

The Basilica School of St. Paul offers an educational experience of academic excellence within a Christ-centered environment.

Our approach is simple — offer a challenging curriculum that promotes creativity and actively engages students in exploration and inquiry; encourage students to live like Jesus through prayer and community service projects; and give students a wide range of activities, clubs and athletics to bring balance to their lives, help them discover their God-given gifts and talents, and learn the value of teamwork.

At the Basilica School of St. Paul, your child’s education is a community effort, bringing together students, families, a dedicated faculty, and the parish community. Together, we are preparing your child to succeed and to live consciously in today’s global world.

Catholic Identity

But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Matthew 19:14

Throughout the year students are invited to grow in their personal relationship with God, serve others, learn about the Catholic faith, receive the sacraments and worship together. They participate in weekly Masses, prayer services, sacramental preparation, Advent, Lent and other celebrations of the Church Year. Students put their faith in action through Campus Ministry where they collaborate with teachers and priests to lead and participate in community outreach, service projects and retreats that unite and strengthen their class communities and provide creative opportunities to explore their spiritual relationship with God.

Our Teachers

We employ a team of dedicated, enthusiastic, learned, kind, and moral educators. From Early Childhood to the eighth grade, the faculty is devoted to the well-being and success of every student. All members of the faculty hold Bachelor’s Degrees, and several hold Master’s Degrees. All faculty members are certified in the State of Florida to teach in their assigned instructional areas. They have been trained in the most current educational trends, and have the experience to implement the best practices in the classroom.  All of our teachers are certified through the Department of Education.
