Making a Difference...not just a tag-line but the reason our school exists. We strive to center everything we do around the love of Jesus to make a difference in the spiritual, academic, and emotional lives of our students. Making a difference for today, and making a difference for eternity! Here's what some of our school family members, current students, and alumni are saying...
What Parents are Saying
"I heard a story today about a child of someone I know from my mom’s group last year…her 5 year old daughter in 4k was told by her teacher today that she couldn’t talk about God in school…the teacher told the child’s father the same thing after school.
 I can’t tell you how wonderful it has been to have Jesus central in what [my child] is learning.  I’m reassured of it every time I’m in your classroom.
We are so thankful [our child] is in your class at St Pauls!:)"

"I have nothing but good to say about St. Paul's! My kids are doing so awesome at St. Paul's and I know in my
heart that I made the right decision when we switched our son there.  I thank God that I know I made the right choice!"


What Students are Saying
"Having a Christian education has affected me in many different ways since pre-school. I learn about Jesus everyday, and I get to study new things about him every day. All the teachers are kind and really care about you. I think that having a Christian education affects the way you act. We want to let our light shine. We also want to live for Jesus. We all care for each other."

"Having a Christian education has changed me. Before I came to St. Paul’s, I didn’t know who God was - I just heard about him. Now I know who he is and believe in him. This is a great school that can change anyone. Now that I  believe in God, I can live with him for eternity."

"I think having a Christian education has really strengthened my faith. I get to talk about my faith openly. I will always have someone who cares about me and who is willing to encourage me in my faith. In my life, Jesus has truly become my firm foundation and will reign in my heart for my whole life. If I didn’t go to a Christian school, I maybe wouldn’t have the same attitude or faith I have today. My years here at St. Paul’s have shaped me into the person I am today. I am very thankful God has blessed me to let me attend this school."

"I think that having a Christian education is very special, because I know that many people aren’t able to learn about God like I do. I think it’s very good that St. Paul’s teaches so many kids about God, because then all of the kids go and teach others about God - it’s like a chain reaction with more and more people learning about God. I am so lucky that I can get such a good Christian education at St. Paul’s. I wish that more people would come and get a great Christian education."

Bone Marrow Transplant
This summer I had the opportunity to donate my bone marrow to a 6-year-old boy diagnosed with leukemia. Back in January I was informed that I was a potential match for the boy and underwent testing here in Nashville. I was then brought out to Washington D.C. where further tests confirmed that I was a definite match.
In May, I returned to Washington D.C. where I received five days of injections and then had a procedure in which the stem cells from my bone marrow were removed. Initial reports were that the procedure was a success, but I was later informed that it was only a partial success. I returned to Washington D.C. in August and had the same procedure done again. This time, I am thrilled to be able to report that the doctors have declared the boy’s leukemia in remission and he has been discharged from the hospital a year after being diagnosed with leukemia!
Many people have been surprised that I underwent this procedure two times for a boy I have never met, but I feel it was the natural decision. My discomfort pales in comparison to what this little boy had to undergo before his 7th birthday. I credit my education at St. Paul’s with my attitude going into this procedure. I am proud to have graduated from St. Paul’s in 2003, as my schooling there has instilled in me a sense of service and compassion. During my time at St. Paul’s, my incredible teachers ingrained a service attitude in me. Knowing what Christ sacrificed for all of us, we should be happy when opportunities arise for us to help others.
