South Oklahoma City

A BEAUTIFUL PLACE WITH AN EDUCATIONAL CRISIS

Economic Need

 

85%

of families in South OKC qualify for free and reduced-price meals.

Economic poverty often correlates to deficits in emotional, mental, spiritual, physical, and linguistic development in children.

These children often experience
• unstable emotional-behavioral conditions in the home
• thin support systems
• a shortage of positive relationships and role models

An Educational Crisis

 

16of the17

elementary schools in the South OKC quadrant received
failing grades in the 2016 school year.

In these schools:

80%

of 3rd graders scored below proficient in math.

81%

of 3rd graders scored below proficient in language arts.

These students are 4 times less likely to graduate high school. High school dropouts are 63 times more likely to be incarcerated than peers with college degrees.

Our Mission

We exist to partner with families and churches in the work of nurturing wise, virtuous and skilled students who will use their God-given abilities to bless people for the glory of Jesus Christ and the flourishing of south Oklahoma City.

Help Us Fulfill Our Vision

St. Paul’s is a private school, primarily funded by outside donations and grants, and secondarily by tuition. In order to fulfill our vision of making this education available to all families, tuition will be paid on a sliding scale based on income.

For now our giving is being redirected through Christ Community Church. Click the box to be directed to their donation site and donate to the “Education” fund.

Our Vision

We seek to make a classical Christian education of the highest quality accessible to all families in Oklahoma City, regardless of income or ethnicity.
