Prince of Peace is truly an extension of our home and family for our children! The love and support that the teachers, staff and priests provide cannot be reproduced anywhere! The academics provided are so rich and all encompassing - but it is the extras like the establishment of Catholic / Christian values, love of neighbor, development of character that make this school so extra special! I highly recommend joining this family and enriching your children with an education that cannot be replicated in any other environment!

We cannot recommend Prince of Peace enough! It is an ideal place to send a child so that they can be educated body, mind, and soul! In addition to having very strong academics (Blue Ribbon School) the school is devoted to raising virtuous children that love Christ and neighbor! The teachers there are amazing and see their role as a vocation and not a job. We cannot imagine sending our children anywhere else!

We absolutely love Prince of Peace. This is our third year at the school and our children are thriving. The pastor, teachers, staff, and other families are so friendly and welcoming. We feel a great sense of community at the school, an attribute that is important to us. The teachers are top notch and truly care about the well being of each child. The education the kids receive is unparalleled. We are very happy with our school and look forward to many years within the Prince of Peace community.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
