Lower School

A lifelong love of learning starts with joy. The St. Paul’s Lower School is full of students finding joy in their achievements today, even as they are being prepared to find success in the years to come.

Seeds of curiosity and enthusiasm are planted every day, with our students beginning to develop the essential habits of mind they will need to succeed at St. Paul’s, in their later education, and in life. They acquire an appetite for learning, a sense of wonder about the world, a heartfelt concern for others, and a confidence in their own abilities. We establish the solid foundation of skills that all children must have, then go beyond the fundamentals to help students develop their critical thinking, adaptability, and effective written and oral communication. 

Three-quarters of our Lower School teachers have advanced degrees. They are a combination of master teachers with decades of experience and young practitioners with innovative approaches to education. All are talented, nurturing educators, there with the right word of advice or support, spoken when it matters most. Our small class sizes and focus on individual attention help each student achieve at his or her highest possible level.

Before and After School Care

St. Paul’s partners with working and busy parents to provide seamless before and after- school programs, many with no additional charge. For any questions regarding these programs, please contact Dana Eastman, at esp@stpaulsschool.org or 410-821-3061.


Before School – Tabletop Morning Time

No Charge, 7:30-8:00 a.m.
Available every school day, doors open at 7:30 a.m. and students may play tabletop games, draw, do pencil-paper puzzles, or engage in quiet conversation with classmates. At 8:00 the students are dismissed from the program to go to their homerooms. There is no fee or registrations needed for this offering. 

After School – Extended School Program

No charge, 3:30-4:30 p.m.
Additional care, fees vary, 4:30-6 p.m. 
The Extended School Program, staffed by St. Paul’s faculty, provides after school care for students in the Lower School. Children may choose from a variety of activities each day or attend study hall. Families using the program regularly register on a trimester basis (Early ESP now has an option to register on a yearly basis), and the Program offers daily drop-in service. ESP closes at 6 p.m.

Children may choose from a variety of activities each day, including:

  • Outdoor/Indoor Playtime
  • Quiet Playtime
  • Art and Drawing
  • Guided Study Hall - now mandatory 30 minutes
  • Game Room

Drop-in Care - available daily 3:30-6 p.m.

Single day care is available on a drop-in basis when requested in writing the morning of the drop-in day. These requests are to be given to the homeroom teacher by the students the day of the drop-in. This information is then sent to the office to be put on the daily attendance sheet, which automatically notifies ESP. Drop-ins may choose any basic ESP activity offered that day. Drop-in charges begin at 4:35 p.m.
