st. paul's HISTORY

  • With the land donated by a wealthy physician George Cheyne Shattuck, St. Paul’s School began in 1856 as an Episcopal School for boys with a strong emphasis on public service and appreciation for nature. The school slowly began to expand its pool of admitted applicants, admitting its first African American students in 1964 and becoming one of the first New England boarding schools to admit girls in 1971.
