Getting to know St. Paul School

Our website is designed to give you helpful information while making a decision as to the correct educational fit for your child. The best way to decide if St. Paul is the right choice for your family is to schedule a time to come in for a tour. Tours are always available inside and outside the school day. They can be scheduled by calling Pastor Mark Ball at 585-392-4000 x201, or via email at pastorball@stpaulhilton.org.

Investing in a St. Paul Lutheran Education

Our goal at St. Paul Lutheran School is to make a Christian education accessible to every family who truly desires one for their children. The church has a history of generously supporting our school ministry, which allows us to offer a tuition that is about half of the actual expense to educate a student.

Even so, we recognize that deciding to pay for your child's education has its challenges. To assist families St. Paul offers needs based financial assistance and discounts for families with multiple children. You will find our tuition rates for every grade level located on-line and we would be pleased to discuss this further with you in person.

Our tuition rates for the 2014-2015 academic year are now approved and posted for your information.





Enrolling at St. Paul Lutheran School

We would love for you to join the St. Paul family! Here's how you do it:

St. Paul Lutheran School partners with a company that provides enrollment, tuition payment, and financial aid services to non-public schools across the country - the Tuition Management, Admissions and Enrollment Services (TADS) company. By partnering with TADS, St. Paul offers an easy, on-line registration process, flexible payment options, the ability to use credit cards, and a financial aid process with national standards.

For families new to St. Paul

The admissions process begins with a call to Pastor Mark Ball at 392-4000 x201. We welcome the opportunity to schedule a family tour, to setup a consultation meeting with a classroom teacher, or to simply answer any questions over the phone or via email at pastorball@stpaulhilton.org.

Once a family has been approved to register, you will receive an email with information on the quick and easy registration process.

For St. Paul families wishing to re-enroll

Families of current St. Paul students are encouraged to enroll for the upcoming school year no later than April 1st. This is the deadline for financial aid applications and for transportation. Families that register prior to April 1st have a portion of their registration fee applied to tuition.

The TADS system will store your registration information making re-enrollment much more efficient in future years.
