- School Life
St. Paul's High School is missioned by the Canadian Jesuits to educate students as whole persons to become men for others and so assist the Church in building the Realm of God.
A St. Paul's High School 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 commit their lives to leadership through service and co-operation with others in order to praise, reverence, and serve God. Our education forms graduates to become lifelong 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 its work of preparing young men for university and subsequent leadership in the community. In an atmosphere of Ignatian care and concern for each person, the School challenges students with a well-rounded academic program and a wide variety of extra and co-curricular activities designed to facilitate healthy spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development. Following Jesus Christ, the Man for Others, our learning community is 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 is committed to fostering personal responsibility and social justice. To that end, the school strives 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 who allow the school to continue to build its bursary program. The school's commitment to social justice is also reflected in its practice of welcoming diversity, respecting the religious and cultural backgrounds of all, and its co-operation with the broader Manitoba community through service and charitable outreach programs.
