St. Paul’s College in Raheny, Dublin is a Roman Catholic secondary school for boys under the trusteeship of the Vincentian Fathers (Congregation of the Mission). The college was established in 1950.

St. Paul's is overseen by a Board of Management comprising representatives of the trustees, parents and teaching staff and directed by the Principal, assisted by the Deputy Principal.

St. Paul’s College has 700 pupils and follows the Irish Junior Certificate and the Irish Leaving Certificate and achieves good results at all levels.

Teaching support facilities include two well-equipped computer rooms, four science laboratories and a woodwork room.

The school has grounds of over 180 acres (730,000 m2), including its own all-weather grass pitches and grass playing fields. St. Paul's has a strong track record in sports, notably in schools' rugby and also soccer, Gaelic football, hurling, basketball, golf and athletics.

St.Pauls was also known for having award winning sausage rolls. Until 2012 a campaign from the board of management removed the sausage rolls from the school cafeteria because they were deemed unhealthy.
