Millville is the nickname given to the community of buildings that makes up the St. Paul's Campus. It is also a term that is used frequently on campus in reference to the school, especially when the rector addresses the student community regarding on-campus issues.


The school is known for its many longstanding traditions. For example, near the start of the school year—on a sunny, crisp Fall day—the Rector announces an unplanned "Cricket Holiday" in morning Chapel. Classes are cancelled for the day and the students participate in a variety of fun activities, plus rest and relaxation. The Cricket Holiday dates back to the first Rector, Henry Augustus Coit, who preferred cricket over baseball as a "more refined sport." Students who participate in "club" sports (intramural) at St. Paul's are assigned to one of three teams for their entire school careers—"Isthmian," "Delphian" or "Old Hundred." Student also are assigned to one of two "Boat Clubs""—Halcyon or Shattuck. The rivalry of the clubs has lasted for more than a century. If a graduate's descendent attends the school, he or she is assigned to the same clubs.


St. Paul's students once had a close relationship with the Grateful Dead and other jam bands. Several Grateful Dead histories make note of the "pyramid dialect" that was born at the school. Phish played in the Upper on May 19, 1990. Jerry Garcia later in life Grateful Dead was an American rock band, which was formed in 1965 in San Francisco from the remnants of another band, Mother McCrees Uptown Jug Champions. ...
