We highly recommend Saints Peter and Paul. Now more than ever, we feel so incredibly blessed that our family's Catholic faith is reinforced at school. The teachers and the entire staff are exceptional and provide an academically challenging yet loving environment. Simply put, from parent to principal, every single person has an unwavering commitment to our children. We couldn't be happier with our school choice.

Saints Peter and Paul is a place where every child is taught to know God and His love daily. This is a place where every child feels at home and every teacher is an extension of our family. With small class sizes, the teachers can focus and give individualized attention to all students. Catholic education has been offered for over 100 years in Naperville to grades Pre-K through 8th grade at this amazing school. If you are considering a private, catholic school for your child, I highly recommend reaching out for a tour where you and your child will instantly feel welcome. Children can partake in a variety of weekly specials, like music, Spanish, art, and more. The school offers full-time reading specialists, support staff, and other student services. School sports are offered to begin at grades 5 and up, with plenty of intramurals for all grade levels, as well as after-school clubs like STEAM, chess, and band. Plan on an impressive curriculum and witnessing "kind, courteous, friendly, respectful and welcoming" students in the halls when you are here!

Academically rigorous, fantastic teachers, and a strong sense of community and Catholic values, Ss. Peter and Paul is one of the best schools in the area. The students consistently go on to do extremely well in high school, having been well prepared at SSPP. The teachers do a great job of focusing on the students and providing all the resources and support to make sure the children learn the material, not just wade through it. The teachers and staff also care deeply about the children and families and go out of their way to connect with them. The kids learn what they need but also feel loved and respected. Having children who are extremely different from each other at this school has helped me experience firsthand how skilled the teachers and staff are at reaching the kids as individuals. The school also provides social, athletic, and further academic opportunities, scholarship support, strong Catholic teaching, and community service opportunities.
