St. Paul's School is an independent K-12 college-preparatory school in Brooklandville, Marylandmarker (a suburb of Baltimoremarker), on a rural campus in the Green Spring Valley, about ten miles (16 km) north of the city of Baltimore. St. Paul's was founded in 1849 at Old St. Paul's Parishmarker in Baltimoremarker City by Reverend William Edward Wyatt. Throughout its history, St. Paul's has moved homes five times, finally residing on the current grounds in Brooklandville. The focal point of the Brooklandville campus is Brooklandwoodmarker, a mansion built in 1793 by Charles Carroll, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.

Today, St. Paul's is co-ed through the fourth grade, but all-male from fifth through twelfth grade. However, its all-girls sister school St. Paul's School for Girls is located on an adjacent campus. The Upper Schools share some foreign language and certain elective classes.

Academics

Early Years

From the time of its founding, St. Paul’s School pursued a demanding curriculum. In the nineteenth century, boys studied Greek, Latin, and math. The practice of church music was also given high priority, starting with the creation of the Men and Boys’ Choir of Old St. Paul’s Church in 1873.

Today

St. Paul's offers a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum for students in the Upper School (grades 9-12). Over 99% of each graduating class matriculates to a four-year college.

The St. Paul's academic experience is known for its excellent faculty, small class sizes, collegial student-teacher relationships and strong focus on the liberal arts. The school recently established an IB Diploma Program to further enrich a curriculum of Advanced Placement and Honors courses.

The arts also make up an important element of St.Paul's identity. Courses offered include theater, concert chorale, and visual arts. Many of the art classes are cross-registered with the neighboring St. Paul's School for Girls.

Athletics

St. Paul's places a strong emphasis on athletics. Despite its small size of roughly 70 students per year, the school supports varsity teams in football, soccer, volleyball, cross-country, wrestling, basketball, ice hockey, squash, tennis, crew, baseball and, perhaps most notably, lacrosse, for which St. Paul's has repeatedly been one of the top-ranked teams in the country.

Varsity Lacrosse

The St. Paul’s lacrosse program has one of the richest histories in the nation. Since its inception in 1933, it has won 24 MSA/MIAA titles, more than any other team in the conference. St. Paul's has produced 12 C. Markland Kelly Award winners, which honors the top player in the state of Maryland each year. St. Paul's has also produced 20 high school all-Americans and 11 graduates in the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame, in addition to claiming more college all-American’s than any other program in the country.

St. Paul’s claimed their first MSA title in 1940 under head coach Howdy Myers. St. Paul's would dominate the next two decades in the MSA winning the title 14 times. During this stretch many college programs would schedule scrimmages against St. Paul's in the early spring. In 1947 St. Paul’s beat Princeton University twice, the first coming in a pre-season scrimmage in Princeton, NJ and the second a scheduled game at Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood Field. During this period St. Paul's posted 5 undefeated seasons, 4 under Howdy Myers and another in 1951 while Jim Adams was the head coach. St. Paul’s last won the conference championship in 2004 under head coach Mitch Whiteley.

St. Paul’s and Boys' Latin have one of the most historic rivalries in high school sports. Although the current win-loss record is narrowly in Boys' Latin's favor (44-43-1), the MSA/MIAA conference title win record between the two schools is 24 to 9, with St. Paul's taking the lead.

Traditions

Dating back to 1935, students at St. Paul's have maintained a student-run Honor Council in the Upper School. The council is comprised of three representatives from each grade, plus a president elected each year by the council. The purpose of the council is to enforce the school's honor code, which sets forth principals of conduct that permeate all aspects of student life and reflect the goals set forth in the school motto, Veritas et Virtus, truth and virtue.

Each year, the entire St. Paul's community returns for one day to the site of its founding at Old St. Paul's Parishmarker in downtown Baltimoremarker for the annual Lessons and Carols celebrations, a tradition originating the Anglican community, most notably at King's College, Cambridgemarker. Students from all years participate in the day-long musical and cultural festivities.

The first alumni association was founded in 1894. Today, St. Paul's has carried on the tradition by hosting a number of events that provide opportunities for the school's roughly 2,500 alums to reconnect. Notably, the bull roast dinner is an annual highpoint in terms of attendance and the scope of festivities for alums returning to the Brooklandville campus.
