St. Peter/St. Francis School educates children from pre-kindergarten through grade 8. With Jesus Christ, the Savior, as its source of meaning and purpose, the school strives to awaken, encourage, and enlighten students in an environment centered on the Roman Catholic faith. By developing pride in self and work, students are provided the academic foundation necessary to make positive contributions to society. The school serves the greater Torrington area and honors the heritage of the Sisters of Mercy and the Religious Teachers Filippini. Catholic schools educate diverse student bodies to form Catholic, person-centered learning communities; provide quality teaching through traditional and innovative educational programs infused with Catholic Social Teachings; involve students to serve and support parish life and the local civic communities; graduate students who are critical thinkers, productive moral citizens, and spiritual leaders; and recognize and appreciate parents as the primary educators of their children. The goal of St. Peter/St. Francis School is to further the advancement of Catholic education for students. We continue to offer one of the finest educational programs in Litchfield County. We continue to draw students from such areas as Litchfield, Goshen, New Hartford, Thomaston and Harwinton, in addition to Torrington. And our students consistently score well above their grade levels on standardized tests.
