St. Paul’s School
Website / Digital
St. Paul’s School is a highly selective college-preparatory, coeducational boarding school in Concord, New Hampshire, affiliated with the Episcopal Church. It is often regarded as one of the most elite boarding schools in the United States. The school’s 2,000-acre campus currently serves 539 students, who come from 40 states and 18 countries. Established in 1856, St. Paul’s later became one of the first boys’ boarding schools to admit girls and is now home to a diverse student body from all backgrounds.
Stoltze partnered with Common Media to design and build a new interactive and immersive web experience that reflects the school’s traditional values, promotes their unique “SPS 360” holistic approach to education, and infuses storytelling throughout. Our UX process included content strategy and participatory design workshops to help the team hone messaging and visualize storytelling approaches; a revised information architecture that eliminated duplication and provided clear pathways through the site; and a detailed framework for how SPS 360 content should be structured, presented, and promoted throughout the site. Showcasing the school with impactful imagery, the visual design updates the school’s current identity with contemporary fonts, typography, and an extended color palette. The result is a dynamic new online presence that reflects the quality of the SPS educational experience.
