St. Peters Catholic School

  • The mission of St. Peter's Catholic School is to prepare our students for lives of faith, virtue and excellence.
  • We accomplish this by nurturing and challenging the whole child--intellectually, physically, and spiritually--so that each child achieves his or her God-given potential.
  • The K4 to 6th grade program is academically excellent. Our students consistently score above grade level on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills.
  • Our convenient location in the center of the Captial City allows our teachers to take advantage of the many resources Columbia offers.
  • Currently there are twelve different religious backgrounds in our student body. We welcome all who enter our doors.
