Your family belongs at St. Peter’s

We are a family school rich in faith and love, and since 1878, thousands of children have come to us for a quality Catholic education, one that develops their character and offers them abundant opportunities to succeed.

At St. Peter’s we believe that you, as parents, are the most important teachers for your children, instilling values such as strong faith, hard work, perseverance, kindness, and respect. As educators, we act as your trusted and nurturing partner, doing all we can to enhance your child’s academic, spiritual, and personal growth.

Because we are committed to making a St. Peter’s education affordable to all families who want it, you’ll find our tuition is low and there is generous financial assistance to make your dreams for your children a reality. We’d love to welcome your family to ours.

I teach at St. Peter’s because of its sacred mission: to inspire students academically, build a diverse community and to help students grow in their faith. I couldn’t be happier to be part of a great community where parents, teachers, and volunteers are committed to creating a positive learning environment for all students.
— Mrs. Annie Sanchez, kindergarten teacher

Our rigorous academic program

Our holistic program is academically rigorous, and we incorporate the latest educational methods as we prepare our students to meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. Our teachers are of the highest caliber, certified, well educated and dedicated to your child.

A day in the life at St. Peter’s

Because we are rooted in Catholic education traditions, every day starts with religion class so that each of our students grows in their relationship with God, themselves, and others.

Later, you might find our second graders preparing for their First Communion or a group of third graders practicing their times tables on Nexus 7 tablets. Head over to the fifth grade classroom, and you’ll see kids gathered around a table working on a hands-on science project. Upstairs, our middle schoolers are fully immersed in an energetic creative writing project.

Throughout the day, students get ample time to move their bodies in P.E. and recess, as well as explore their creative sides with weekly art classes. All students are challenged daily to enrich their critical thinking skills and every grade is preparing for the future with various STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) initiatives.

And of course because we are family, support, love, and hugs are given out generously by teachers and staff.

what we believe

God is in all things and calls each of us to grow in His love.

Our school nourishes an atmosphere of respect, care, understanding, and patience where all feel safe and loved as precious children of God. 

Every child is capable of success.

When given the tools and resources necessary, from love, care and attention to tangible materials, every child has the means and ability to learn.

We are a family—somos una familia—with parents, students and educators working together.

Parents are the first teachers for their children and working together with educators, a child’s learning experiences can be enhanced.

All students and educators will learn and grow academically, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially.  

In order for students to grow holistically, their educators must always be open to learning and improving. 

We are called to serve others and our world.

Inspired by the example of our founders, the Sisters of Mercy, we extend God’s compassion to meet the needs of our broken world.
