Erika Head Shot 2023 2Dear Parents,

Welcome to Saint Paul of the Cross School . . . SPC the place to be! We are so happy to have this opportunity to share Saint Paul of the Cross School with you.

From the moment upon entering the school campus, a community grounded in a faith-filled education supported by a strong parent community surrounds you. At each grade level, students are encouraged to be active participants and to serve their community. Along with our SPC families, our goal is to involve all students in the mission of Jesus, the love of God, and the love of their neighbor.

SPC strives to provide an inclusive, collaborative, and differentiated curriculum, instilling a strong faith foundation for our 730 students in preschool through eighth grade. The dedication of our highly educated and trained faculty members makes this possible. Core and practical fine arts teachers collaborate to support interdisciplinary learning at each grade level in Spanish, physical education, art, music, and STEM. Grade-level unit teams work together to implement a rigorous and inclusive vertically aligned curriculum.

Beyond the classroom, we take a comprehensive approach in advancing students' social, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth by providing a variety of co-curricular service, learning, and athletic programs. As a result of this holistic approach, our graduates are faith-filled leaders equipped with 21st-century skills, prepared to succeed in an evolving global society as committed Christians and loyal citizens.

On September 24, 2020, Saint Paul of the Cross School was named by the U.S. Department of Education a National Blue Ribbon Exemplary High Performing School for 2020. I am so proud of the faculty, staff, and students for all they have done to make this award a reality for a second time. The first National Blue Ribbon Award was in 2011. This prestigious recognition is a validation of the commitment, dedication, and collaborative efforts of the faculty and staff, parents, and parish community, both past and present, to ensure our mission of academic excellence in Catholic education.

We invite you to join us for any of our Monthly Virtual Campus Tours/Presentations to see what SPC is all about! You may RSVP here. 

Once again, thank you for exploring St. Paul of the Cross School. I look forward to personally meeting you and your family soon! 


Dr. Erika Mickelburgh
