St Paul's College is a college for year 7 to 13 boys and offers a Catholic education to its students. It is located in the central Auckland suburb of Ponsonby. The school originates from 1903 when the Marist Brothers opened Sacred Heart College, Auckland on the site. In the early 1950s the school was split with part, taking the name of "Sacred Heart College", being relocated to Glen Innes. The remaining section was renamed St Paul's College (after the apostle Paul) and began operations in its current form in 1955. St Paul’s College celebrated its 50th Jubilee in 2005.
