Welcome to the internet home of Marion County’s finest preschool!
Our school philosophy
St. Paul's Christian School is committed to the developmental needs of children, and encourages growth in all areas: physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. We believe play is the work of children and the foundation of a good school and we recognize its value for all children. We strive to provide each child with a foundation which furthers learning and where a maturing faith can grow. Our school is a happy place where a child will learn to live, work and play with other children of his or her own age. Our classes stress learning through play and socialization through a wealth of "hands on" activities. Time for art, music, outdoor play, story time and group activities are part of each day's program.
We consider our students to be "gifts from God" that are temporarily in our care. We hope to make a difference in their lives and impress upon them that who they are makes a difference in the world.
We are a non-profit organization
St. Paul's Christian School is an outreach ministry of Saint Paul's United Methodist Church. We are totally self-supported by tuition, registration fees and our fundraising projects.
Who runs our school?
The day-to-day operation of the school is managed by the School Director. All school policies and operations are overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of parents of students and members of St. Paul's United Methodist Church. Parental involvement is encouraged and board meetings are open to all parents.
