At Paul, we define family, caretaker and community as anyone committed to growth, love, respect and success of the scholar and whole-child. Through our collaboration, appreciation of one another, and celebration of our differences, we help strengthen the academic, social, and emotional well-being of our student population. When we embrace this vision of family, we learn, grow, and succeed together!

Wondering how to help your scholar feel ready as they head back to the classroom? After remote and hybrid learning, the school-year transition might feel like a whole new ball game. But the good news is: you and your scholar have partners within Paul and throughout the wider community to meet your family’s needs.
