Choosing the school for your child’s education is one of the most important decisions you’ll make as a parent. Their grade school experiences will shape their life choices and lay the foundation for future successes or failures.

St. Paul Catholic School’s philosophy, curriculum, and activities are centered on the teachings of Jesus Christ and that’s what sets our school apart from others. If you have children about to start Preschool or if you are new to the Highland area, we invite you to look around our website and discover what St. Paul School can offer your child. 

April 6, 2020 - COVID-19 School Closure

Dear Viking Parents:

The St. Paul Catholic School teachers and staff miss our students and co-workers!  Gina and Frank Lipski graciously offered to create a video to send our message to the community and we are extremely thankful!  It can be found at:


Holy Week began yesterday with Palm Sunday, which we celebrated in ways unlike ever before.  As Pope Francis stated last week:

“We will celebrate Holy Week in a truly unusual way, which manifests and sums up the message of the Gospel, that of God’s boundless love.  And in the silence of our cities, the Easter Gospel will resound.”

As we enter Holy Week, may our focus and prayers be on the continuation to do what is right, good, and compassionate for one another. These are stressful times for everyone and I know our St. Paul School family will remain supportive of one another and emerge stronger than ever before. 

May you experience God’s boundless love!
