St Peter's School

  • While providing God's children superior educational opportunities in an accepting and loving Catholic environment, St. Peter's School serves its parish community and the greater Kansas City metropolitan area as a leader in preparing children for a morally responsible and educationally sound adulthood, grounded in the spirituality of Jesus Christ.
  • Burning in each child is the light of Christ. Our commitment is to keep that light burning brightly through our staff's professionalism and dedication.
  • Our parents, students, faculty and staff pride themselves on making St. Peter's a home for excellence and achievement fostered by the appreciation of God's presence in each individual.
  • At the heart of our mission is our desire to bring all children to a deeper knowledge and love of God.
  • All St. Peter's students are led by their parents and teachers through an exploration of the Catholic faith.
  • This endeavor is designed to reveal God's desire that we love unconditionally, appreciate each individual's uniqueness, accept the responsibilities of Catholic Christian, and develop an awareness and reverence for God's people and the Earth we share.
  • Because our school strives to be a faith community, parent cooperation and good parent-teacher relations are essential.
  • As members of faith community, our first instance is to assume that all of us – teachers, administrators, parents, guardians and other caregivers – have the child's best interest at heart.
