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 K3 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.
