The LORD has told you…to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
My heart leaps for joy and with my song I praise him.
Our children are a heritage from the LORD.
For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body.
I Corinthians 12:12
Together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
St. Paul’s is the vanguard Catholic school in the provision of classical education for the entire Treasure Valley and the only Theology of the Body campus in Idaho. We are accredited by the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA), the same program used by all Catholic schools in Idaho, but we approach education as a manifestation of faith in the spirit of Saint Pope John Paul II, who confirmed that intellect and faith are not exclusive but complementary in the soul’s ascent to the Father. St. Paul’s is a member of the Institute for Catholic Liberal Education, and one of two schools in Idaho.
Catholic Classical Education
St. Paul’s Catholic School combines classical education with a Catholic Christian theology for a Catholic Classical education.
Our school proudly follows this Catholic, classical style of education in an effort to challenge each student to develop in spirit, mind and body. The teachers at St. Paul’s inspire each student to think independently, acquire truth, and make intelligent moral judgments. These are skills for life well beyond the walls of St. Paul’s.
A classical or liberal arts education has been essential to education since ancient times. The word “liberal” is from the word liberare, “to set free”. The goal of classical education is to liberate the mind from the limitations of any one specialized skill in order to be able to appreciate and converse in any science, art, or theology.
