Mission & Purpose

Saint Paul’s Choir School, the only Catholic boys’ choir school in the United States, identifies and accepts boys from the greater Boston area who are musically talented and academically qualified.  In the context of a Catholic environment, students are offered intensive musical training, a rigorous academic program, and a solid moral, spiritual formation.

The school seeks to develop the diverse musical talents of each boy so that he may use his musical gifts for the greater glory of God, enriching the liturgical services at Saint Paul Church and serving the community at large by the performance of master works of choral literature.

Through challenging academic offerings, the school aspires to give each student a strong foundation in basic skills and provide multiple opportunities for enrichment, so that Choir School graduates may continue their formation in secondary schools recognized for their academic excellence.

Caring, dedicated teachers who model Christian values, strive in a small and personal school community to foster the moral, ethical, and spiritual growth of each student in order to define his relationship to God, encourage a genuine understanding and respect of others, and develop a strong sense of commitment and service to both individuals and communities.
