A St. Paul's education is based upon Ignatian pedagogy derived from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. Through the commitment and efforts of all members of the learning community – students, parents, staff, alumni, friends and board members – our students develop into competent, conscientious and compassionate Men for Others, who dedicate their lives to leadership through service and cooperation with others, in order to praise, revere, and serve God.
Our education forms graduates to be learners who are open to growth, intellectually competent, loving, religious, and committed to doing justice.
As a Jesuit Catholic school, St. Paul's aims at academic excellence and the growth of the whole person in preparing students for university and leadership in the community. In an atmosphere of Ignatian care and concern for each person, students are challenged by a well-rounded academic program and a wide variety of extra- and co-curricular activities. These are designed to encourage healthy spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development. Following Jesus Christ, the Man for Others, we are committed to love, faith, peace, and justice in the world. St. Paul's has an active pastoral program that includes liturgies, retreats, service experiences, Christian Life Communities, and spiritual counseling.
St. Paul's tries to ensure that all qualified applicants who are accepted can attend regardless of their ability to pay tuition. This is made possible through the generous contributions of alumni and friends that allow the school to continue to build its bursary program.
St. Paul's commitment to social justice is also reflected in its practice of welcoming diversity, respecting the religious and cultural backgrounds of all, and its cooperation with the broader Manitoba community through service and charitable outreach programs.
