St. Paul's High School is a Jesuit Roman Catholic, all-boys university preparatory high school located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The school has approximately 600 students attending and has an active alumni community.


St Paul's High School was founded in 1926 under the Oblate fathers at a location on Selkirk Avenue in Winnipeg. By 1931 direction of the College had been taken over by diocesan clergy and in 1933 direction of the High School was given to the Jesuits,[1] with Fr. John Holland, SJ, being the school's first rector. This period also saw the school relocated to its second location on Ellice Avenue in Winnipeg with construction being completed in 1939. Between 1958 and 1964 St. Paul's College was moved to its current location on the campus of the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. From 1964 to 1966 the high school was relocated to its third and current location on Grant Avenue in Winnipeg.
