On September 16, 1959, St. Paul’s School for Girls opened with 86 students and 14 faculty and staff. The years that followed were filled with excitement and a bit of anxiety as a small group of volunteers and philanthropists imagined, financed, and brought a new school to reality.
Founding Headmistress Ros Levering believed that there was a great need for a school that provided “the fullest possible development of personality, a size small enough and flexible enough to help each child individually to develop maturity in judgment, discrimination and perceptiveness, and a high standard of values.” Many agreed with her. SPSG has grown, thrived, and flourished since then, sustained by voluntary contributions of time and financial support.
As always, contributions from current and former parents, alumnae, grandparents, current and former trustees, faculty, and friends continue to provide invaluable opportunities for the school’s students, faculty and staff. There are innumerable ways to support the school and its philanthropic priorities. Your support of the Annual Fund, the endowment, and designated areas are welcome and appreciated.
In advance, thank you for your generosity to St. Paul's School for Girls.
