Rooted in the faith that we are created in the image and likeness of God with the capacity for reason and the ability to know the Truth as revealed to us by God, the Saint Paul’s Choir School Program of Studies is designed to inculcate in students a love of learning and an attentiveness to growth in musical and intellectual virtue. Students are introduced to music and academic disciplines as giving them unique lenses through which they can vigorously engage with the deepest and most profound questions about the world that human beings ever asked. Attention is given to forming students with a solid background knowledge in each discipline while also helping them begin developing independent thinking skills in reading analytically, asking profound questions, thinking logically, solving problems, and expressing their thoughts in clear writing. The approach is broadly interdisciplinary, helping to show students the interconnectedness of all human knowledge. Students who successfully complete the Program of Studies are well-prepared to enter competitive high schools. They leave Saint Paul’s with a strong musical and academic foundation and with the skills and habits necessary to pursue further work in high school, college, and life.
