Located in Harvard Square, Saint Paul’s Choir School (SPCS) provides boys in grades 3-8 an extraordinary learning experience that integrates rigorous academics with the performance of choral masterworks. Rooted in excellence, camaraderie and integrity, SPCS prepares students to achieve their highest potential, excel in the strongest secondary schools, and make a positive difference in the lives of others.

At SPCS, classes are small and motivation is high among both students and teachers, making for a focused, energetic, and creative classroom environment.
