Faculty and Staff



Students at St. Paul's perform well in the classroom in part because they have teachers who care deeply for them and pray for them daily. These teachers have given their lives to the service of God through teaching. They will pray for your child, listen to your child, and be there for you, too, as we partner together to prepare your child for the future. In addition, all St. Paul's teachers are highly qualified and professionally certified through the state of Illinois.
