Saints Peter and Paul School is a parochial, co-educational, day school founded in 1955.
It is located in the heart of the Eastern Shore, an area populated by a wide variety of professional, managerial and rural residents.
The school serves an area of seven counties.  The Elementary School shares its mission with the High School but has its own campus, principal, staff and faculty.
Our mission is to ensure that all students realize their full academic potential and can do so in a safe,faith-fillled, loving and warm atmosphere.
We strive to help students appreciate their uniqueness, develop Christian and moral values, learn service to others and the community, self-control, sportsmanship, leadership, cooperation, creativity and intellectual curiosity.
We believe that the elementary years of school are of critical importance in a child's development.
It is during these years that children become aware of their unique value as children of God, and that they begin to identify and develop their talents.
SSPP aims to facilitate the development of each child to his or her full potential and to assist them in the achievement of their personal goals.
The school strives not only for the development of its students' intellectual abilities, but also for the formation of Christian ideals and values.
It is through an awareness of these ideals that the school seeks to strengthen each child's individual beliefs in God.
