Transportation by bus is provided, at no charge to our families, by Howard County Public Schools. Bus routes are determined by the county for the immediate school area (similar to public school distance). Many families that live beyond the bus routes carpool.
School uniforms are worn daily at Resurrection-St. Paul School. Our exclusive uniform provider is Lands' End. Uniforms may be purchased online or at a Sears store.
Hot Lunch is available daily at Resurrection-St. Paul School through Tommy’s Food Service. Each family provides pre-payment via PayPal or check into a student lunch account. Purchases by the student are deducted from that account. Parents may view their student’s purchases through an online service. Approximately half of our students participate in the hot lunch program each day.
Resurrection-St. Paul School also offers daily milk separate from the hot lunch program. The milk program involves the pre-payment of $10 per milk order for the entire school year. An order form is sent to school families the first week of school. Milk orders are billed annually via FACTS in September. We serve 1% white or Nonfat chocolate. Milks cannot be purchased through Tommy’s Food Service although other beverages are available.
Positive School Environment
To foster a positive school environment where all students are educated in a safe and caring atmosphere, all Archdiocesan schools will follow established procedures for prevention and intervention for bullying, harassment or intimidation.
Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS) has been implemented in every Archdiocesan elementary and high school to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.
Resurrection-St. Paul School is a Howard County STEM school, as designated by the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Resurrection-St Paul School's curriculum is used with an intentional focus and cross curricular collaboration on science, technology, engineering, and math.
Resurrection-St. Paul School earned the prestigious distinction of being a U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon School of Excellence in 2009 and continues to maintain qualification for the status. Resurrection-St. Paul School earned Blue Ribbon status by achieving assessment scores in the top ten percent of schools in the nation.
Maryland Green School
On May 1, 2015 Resurrection-St. Paul School was awarded Maryland Green School status by the Maryland Association of Environmental and Outdoor Education (MAEOE). The award shows the progress towards achieving the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) environmental literacy requirement. The Maryland Green Schools Program is nationally recognized program that provides a framework for creating sustainable environmental structures at school, home and in the community.
Gold Award Honor for PBIS Program
In 2016 the state of Maryland awarded Resurrection-St. Paul School the Gold Award, for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. We are the only school in the Archdiocese of Baltimore to receive this high honor for a PBIS program.
All Archdiocesan high schools and elementary schools are accredited as a system through AdvancED. Every five years, the Department of Catholic Schools completes a system-wide accreditation review, which culminates in a visit by an AdvancED External Review Team. Each school is evaluated based on the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools.
