Welcome Back!

St. Paul's College & College High, together with today's Saint Paul Lutheran High School, has sent a "family" of alumni throughout the country and across the globe. These "Saints" (and Bluejays!) have served Christ and the community in many and countless ways.

The future of Saint Paul calls on those from the past to join in keeping their "Alma Mater" a place where God will shape lives, friendships and vocations.
