  • We strive to deepen each child's understanding of the life of Christ through worship, example, and by providing opportunities for them to practice their Catholic faith.
  • It is expected that upon graduation all students will exhibit not only an understanding of their Catholic identity, but also an ability to put this understanding into practice.
  • St. Peter's School is a vital part of the parish, a predominantly Latino community in San Francisco's Mission District.
  • Following Christ's example to reach out to all people, St. Peter's School is committed to educating children in their Catholic faith throughout our curriculum.
