St. Paul's School

325 Pleasant St, Concord, NH 03301

Founded the previous year by Dr. George Cheyne Shattuck of Boston, who gave his country home in Concord for the school's use, St. Paul's opened on April 3, 1856, with an enrollment of three boys. St. Paul's has had a long-time association with the Episcopal Church. Faculty and students continue to gather in the chapel four mornings each week. Students attend classes six days per week. The curriculum offers a solid foundation in the liberal arts and a wide range of elective options. Each student must complete courses in the humanities, math, science, the arts and languages, and pupils also satisfy a 10-hour annual community service graduation requirement. The arts offer students opportunities in music, dance, drama and the visual arts at a preprofessional level or as enriching cocurricular activities, while studies in the humanities integrate the disciplines of literature, history, philosophy and religious studies. Advanced Studies courses offer highly motivated sixth formers an additional educational opportunity in a particular discipline once all courses in the division, including electives, have been fully exhausted. St. Paul's cosponsors School Year Abroad programs in France, China, Italy and Spain for students in the fifth and sixth forms. The school also has an association with Seikei School in Tokyo, Japan, in addition to conducting exchange programs with schools in England, France, Germany, Chile, Ghana and Greece. An independent study program offers sixth form students the opportunity to learn from study and experience outside the classroom; student projects may be academic, vocational, social service oriented or experiential.
