We started going to St.Peter's part of the way through the year this last January. My daughter is in Kindergarten and my son is in Pre-K. I love the flexiblity of the Preschool/Pre-K hours and my kids started improving in a month. I was really surprised that they actually grew closer to each other going to the same school as I hadn't really thought it was possible for a 4 and 6 year old. My daughter is allowed to "check in" on her brothers at lunch and that is their favorite part of the day. We were talking about how many days to put my son in Pre-K next year and my daughter said she wanted to up him from 3 to 5 days so that she could see him at school. Priceless! I can't say enough good things about this school and I have felt so completely welcome by parents and teachers.

I have two children currently attending SPACS. I have one child who attends the preschool and the other is participating in their Pre-K program. I am highly impressed with both programs and feel that they do an excellent job of finding a balance between social and academic skill building. My children love going to school everyday and come home with stories about fun lessons and amazing friendships. The classrooms and staff are very welcoming and I am confident dropping them off that I am making the best choice for their education. I plan on continuing to send them through the primary years and highly recommend to any parent to tour the school and enroll.

Our daughter is in her final chapter at St. Peter's and we have been pleased with the school all these years. Its biggest shortfall, to us, was the technology but that is no longer the case. With a community effort led by dedicated parents/teachers, St. Peter's is all revved up for the 21st century. It has a state-of-the-art computer lab and the classrooms are equipped with new hardware. We WISH that the school was K-12 but no matter where our daughter goes, we know she'll thrive because of the foundation that St. Peter's has afforded her both academically and spiritually. A personable pastor, proactive principal and dedicated teachers truly take on an integral role in helping to shape and develop the students to reach their potential. We have not been disappointed and encourage YOU to come and take a look for yourself!!!

As you’ve been doing your boarding school research, you’ve likely seen ISEE/SSAT score submission requirements for your target schools, and understand how important scores are to the admissions process. Unfortunately, tremendous candidates can get bypassed because they were not able to demonstrate what they knew on test day.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
