St. Peter School

Saint Peter School is a faith community where students come to know Jesus Christ through the personal commitment and faith witness of a professional, skilled and dedicated faculty and staff.
The members of Saint Peter faculty and staff believe that God created each person with purpose, dignity, and potentialities: spiritual, mental, social, emotional, and physical.
In a faith community, through relationships with others, enhanced by solid academic training, students can become informed, contributing members of the world.
The existence of Saint Peter School provides an alternative form of education to public and other non-public schools.
Saint Peter School encourages the students to excellence and to use their gifts to be of service to others.
Through life-giving worship, academic excellence, community service, global awareness and skillful technology, we strive to educate students to be respectful and responsible Christian leaders.

This is the most wonderful school with a lovely staff. I have a child that is in her second year of attending St. Peter School. The staff is educated, dedicated, and simply awesome. Every child is treated special here & not to mention the education the kids are getting is top notch.
