School Notes

  • At Queen of Peace Catholic School, faith and knowledge meet for a life time of learning. Founded on Catholic principles, our school is devoted to guiding children, developing their skills, discovering their talents, and growing in faith.
  • We prepare students for learning with deference to the trivium the entry-point of an integrated and Catholic liberal arts education. We teach the fundamentals reading, writing, arithmetic, geography, history, language, catechism, and science, and then we build on the fundamentals in later grades with a study of the deeper logic of each core subject and by introducing classic literary texts. The study of great books gives rigor and clarity to a student`s engagement with the world around us and with the world of his or her own imagination, following on the paths and reflecting upon immortal characters that have been approved by generations.
  • In addition, we support and value the Catholic Diocese of Duluth Mission Statement which reads:" Our Catholic Schools exist to advance religious education, formation and service ministries of the Catholic Church. We welcome children into loving Catholic faith communities where religious instruction and faith formation are integrated into our programs. We value each student as a special and cherished child of God.
