Preparing for Your Time at St. Paul Prep

What to Pack


The weather will be warm and sunny when you arrive in late August or early September (60-80º F). The temperatures will begin cooling off in October, and by November, you will need to have a warm coat and gloves. You may purchase these items once you are here. In March, the weather will begin to warm up, and by the time school ends in June, the weather will again be in the 80’s.

Other items

Because of the international focus of our program, we would like for you to bring pictures, music, recipes, national costumes, and/or anything else that represents your culture. There will be opportunities to share these things with your classmates and host families! Don’t worry if you can’t fit everything in your suitcase; just bring what you can!

Spending Money

We generally recommend that you plan to have $300-400 in spending money per month. Based upon how much money you usually spend (on entertainment, clothes, music, dining out, etc.), you will need to decide on an amount that is most appropriate for you.
