St. Paul’s High School EDUCATING MEN FOR OTHERS


Education for Life St. Paul’s is Winnipeg’s only Catholic, Jesuit high school dedicated to educating Men for Others. St. Paul’s strives for academic excellence and the growth of the whole person, preparing young men for post-secondary education and subsequent leadership in the community. A St. Paul’s education is enhanced by strong extra-curricular programs combined with exceptional personal development and faith formation.


What makes Jesuit education different? St. Paul’s High School is western Canada’s only Jesuit high school and is part of the Jesuit Schools Network consisting of over 60 high schools and 30 universities and colleges across North America and an additional 300 schools and universities worldwide. Jesuit schools are infused with a five-century old tradition and philosophy of education established by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus. When the Jesuits opened their first school in Messina, Italy in 1548, they revolutionized the educational model by combining the two educational systems of the time: the medieval university model, where students studied law, science, math, philosophy and theology and the Renaissance humanistic academy, which focused on Greek and Latin poetry, drama, oratory and history. The Jesuit model of education constituted the largest system of education before the modern public school system and was the first truly international one. Today, St. Paul’s provides our students with a safe and nurturing environment within which they can grow into young adulthood with a clearer sense of who they are and how they can relate to the world around them in a positive and effective way. The enriched and challenging academic program, the engaging and intensive spiritual and religious formation, and the great variety of athletic, cultural, artistic and intellectual activities are all intended to address the developmental needs of young men as they progress through their formative years. That’s why at St. Paul’s we speak more about formation than education because it’s about helping young men grow holistically. This commitment to total formation of the body, mind and spirit is a trademark of a Jesuit education. Coupled with a mission of helping those in need, Jesuit education is so often said to produce “Men for Others.”

Central to the mission of St. Paul’s High School is the preparation of young men for post-secondary studies and subsequent leadership in the community. As a Jesuit, Catholic school, St. Paul’s aims at academic excellence and the growth of the whole person by challenging our students with a well-rounded academic program and a wide variety of extra and co-curricular activities designed to facilitate healthy spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development. As such, our curriculum has been developed in a way that stimulates our students’ imagination and desire to learn, encourages them to make positive and meaningful decisions and provides the groundwork that promotes life long learning. To ensure our students have the support and guidance necessary to make informed decisions, and that they are able to achieve their highest potential, every student is partnered with a guidance counsellor for the duration of their time at the school. Students receive individualized care in order to develop positive study habits, select appropriate courses, examine future career opportunities and select the right university or college. More importantly perhaps, guidance counsellors offer a confidental and nurturing environment in which students can discuss issues important to them. The school meets and exceeds, through enrichment of content, the requirements of the Manitoba Provincial High School curriculum. With over 60 elective courses available, students have the flexibility and opportunity to explore subjects that not only interest them but also prepare them for the next step in their education. Students can also choose from Advanced Placement courses in Mathematics, Language Arts, French and Physics. Since 1997, seven St. Paul’s students have received the University of Manitoba Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship, one of the most prestigious entrance scholarships offered by the University of Manitoba. Approximately 97% of our students continue to post-secondary education at institutions across Canada, the United States and internationally. Schools to which St. Paul’s students have matriculated over the past few years include: Acadia University, University of Alberta, Bishop’s University, University of British Columbia, University of Calgary, University of California Berkley, Canadian Mennonite University, Carleton University, Cornell University, Jamestown College, Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Loyola Marymount University, University of Manitoba, McGill University, Georgetown University, Mid-Ocean School of Media Arts, University of Minnesota, Mississippi Southern University, University of New Brunswick, North Dakota State University, University of North Dakota Providence College, Wharton School (U of Penn), Queen’s University, Red River College, St. Cloud State University, St. Mary’s University, Vancouver Island University, University of Victoria, University of Waterloo, University of Western Ontario, University of Winnipeg, University of Southern California and the University of Texas.


Religious Studies The Religion Department at St. Paul’s High School seeks to assist each young man in the development of his spiritual and intellectual life. Students are asked to encounter the deepest questions about God, themselves and Creation, taking courses in Catholic history and practice, Scripture, Social Justice, and World Religions, as well as a number of senior level options that range from the Spiritual Exercises, Theology & Film, and History of Philosophy, to Stewardship and The Mystery of Evil. Rooted in the Catholic and Jesuit traditions, the department strives to cultivate a climate in which personal faith can grow through investigation and conversation. Students of any and all faith backgrounds are welcome at St. Paul’s. We believe the diversity of the student body enriches both our shared journeys and our personal stories. The Religion curriculum is designed to heighten the student’s awareness of the primacy of his relationship with God. Ignatian in character, the classes offered by the department seek to inculcate a habit of finding God in all things and living a life of commitment to faith, while seeking to foster global awareness regarding issues of justice. The work of each class is to stretch the minds and hearts of our students and in doing so challenge them to live at that junction of faith and understanding that undergirds the tradition of the Church.

Since founding their first school in Messina in 1548, Jesuit schools have been known for their Visual and Performing Arts Programs. It has always been a belief of the Jesuits that it was important to educate the whole person.

Introductory Band

The St. Paul’s Visual Art Program offers a unique hands-on studio experience in which students are presented with projects that are designed to allow them to be expressive. Rather than working towards a common right answer, students are encouraged to explore many options, and think critically to find a personal solution. Students are challenged to explore and develop competence using different forms of media, to develop skills in problem solving and to gain a greater appreciation of art. For students that wish to pursue additional studies in an art related career they will be provided with guidance in developing a portfolio.

Retreat Programs Students in each grade have the opportunity to participate in a variety of retreat programs. Below are two notable retreats that students will encounter over their time at St. Paul’s.

It is designed to give grade 9 students an opportunity to grow more comfortable as members of the high school community, to make new friends and to develop a sense of their importance as Crusaders. The retreat is planned and led by senior students. Kairos: In their grade 11 or grade 12 year, students have the opportunity to participate in the Kairos retreat program.

The school also encourages students to apply Christian values of service in the real world and to reflect on this service. Each year, St. Paul’s students contribute over 12,000 hours of service in the community.

Tuition & Financial Aid The bursary fund is an essential aspect of a Jesuit education ensuring accessibility to all qualified applicants. Therefore it is our policy that:

No student who is successful in the admissions process will be refused entry due to an inability to pay tuition. The cost of educating a student at St. Paul’s High School is in excess of $15,000 per year. This cost is comprised of tuition, a per student government grant and various fundraising efforts. Tuition for the current academic year is $8,700. The tuition fee for the upcoming school year will depend on the amount of the government grant and the success of various fundraising efforts. Tuition is set, traditionally, in mid-March by our Board of Directors. International students are charged the full cost of educating a student at St. Paul’s High School. There are three payment options for tuition: • Prompt Payment • Monthly Payments • Financial Aid/Bursary Assistance Full and partial bursaries are available to any student, based on financial need, as determined by our Bursary Committee. The bursary application process begins after the student has been accepted into the school. St. Paul’s does not offer entrance scholarships; bursaries exist only to meet the needs of families who demonstrate a financial need. Our Bursary Committee reviews all bursary applications and all information provided to St. Paul’s High School is kept in the strictest confidence. For additional information, contact the President, Mr. Kevin Booth ‘78 at (204) 831-2304.

Community St. Paul’s High School is truly a diverse community with close to 600 young men attending from all around Winnipeg. Our student body comes from over 55 different postal codes in and around Winnipeg and from over 60 different junior high schools. The result is an ethnically, racially, spiritually and socially diverse campus where tolerance and understanding is not only encouraged, it is celebrated. Our students have a greater understanding of the world around them and the diverse fabric that makes up our community, city, province, county and world. St. Paul’s High School is a community in the true sense of the word, with various groups and stakeholders participating to ensure the successful realization of a well rounded education. Alumni, teachers and staff, and friends of the school all contribute to making school life at St. Paul’s so vibrant. Perhaps none more so than our parents, who are involved in every aspect of our students’ education. From at-home support to volunteering during the lunch hour at the Crusader Shoppe, our parents help to create a supportive learning environment.

Parent Guild

Fundraising plays an important role in the financial well-being of the school. As government contributions cover less than half of the educational costs of a student at St. Paul’s, it falls upon the school, parents (through tuition and fundraising), and our generous benefactors to assist with the extra-curricular needs of our students. Our annual giving program is our primary fundraiser with a focus on the Adopt-a-Student and Bursary programs. Our Crusader Raffle is another important fundraiser and involves student participation. We encourage all members of our community to give generously where they can. The success of the school’s effort to advance its mission and vision depends on the generosity of all community members including current parents. Our expectation is that all parents will participate in these fundraising ventures with either the gift of their time or financial resources, in every respect according to their means.

Parents for Others


Our Campus Since 1926, St. Paul’s High School has constantly evolved to meet the needs of its students and families both for current, and where possible, for future generations while honouring its alumni and traditions. As times change and cultural norms become expectations; so must the school change if it is to continue to capture the imagination of high school boys and provide for them a Jesuit education. It is, therefore, not only our goal but also our responsibility to respond directly to those changes in a discerned and reflective way. The goal of any learning institution is to provide its people with what is true as well as what is current. The Jesuit term for continually improving upon discerned choices is magis—a Latin term literally meaning “the more.” Each of the major projects taken on by St. Paul’s in the past has moved those attending and staffing the school by responding to a reading of the signs of the times. In 1963, after two previous locations on Ellice Ave and Selkirk Ave respectively, St. Paul’s High School opened its current facility at 2200 Grant Ave in the emerging Tuxedo neighbourhood. Since then, the school has undergone several capital improvments, both in the form of upgrading existing space as well as expanding the facility to meet the needs of stakeholders. The current campus has over 33,000 sq. ft. of classroom space, a chapel, multi-purpose space known as Murray Hall as well as four computer labs - one that uses iMacs exclusively. The Fr. Holland S.J. Learning Centre, at the centre of the campus, houses a computer lab, a study hall and a library. Our library contains over 13,000 book and video titles, over 15,000 e-books, 45 periodical subscriptions as well as Apple iPads and Amazon Kindles for student use. The Angus Reid Arts & Multimedia Centre, constructed in 2000, boasts an 1,800 sq. ft. music room, art studio, additional classrooms, cafeteria, Crusader Shoppe and Crusader locker room. The school is proud to offer extensive athletic and weight training space in both the Eddie Cass and Richardson Gymnasia. Opened in the fall of 2013, the Paul Albrechtsen MultiPlex offers a regulation basketball/volleyball court that can be divided into two smaller courts, seating for 800 as well as a state-of-the-art fitness and weight training facilities and athletic therapy centre. The south campus (pictured above) has over five acres of field space, including Connolly and Alumni Fields, which are dedicated to various school athletics and physical education classes. A virtual campus tour is available online through Google Maps by searching “St. Paul’s High School Winnipeg, MB” and by clicking “See Inside”.
