13th of June: Kindergarten Graduation

At the graduation ceremony of the kindergarten class, Ms. Briana addressed the true meaning of Aloha and how it represented the class.The real meaning of Aloha in Hawaiian is that of Love, Peace, and Compassion. The Aloha spirit is what we all should strive for in life, and is a good guideline for how to treat people around you with love and compassion. Next year these students will be 1st graders; with aloha in mind, St. Peter Catholic Academy knows that these special graduates will emulate “aloha” everywhere they go.

12th of June: Junior Pre-K Stepping Up Ceremony.

The youngest students of St. Peter Catholic Academy celebrated the end-of-the year with their Stepping Up Ceremony. The theme, Oh The Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss, is about making your life what you desire it to be. This is especially fitting for those who are graduating from Junior Pre-K, as life is just beginning.While parents and teachers are incredibly proud of what these amazing children have accomplished throughout the last nine months, it is also a sad time of year, as we all prepare to say goodbye for the summer.

Disciple the Month

Disciples the Month


Every month we celebrate First Friday Mass as a community. Each month a student from each grade is chosen who embodies what is means to be Disciple on the Month.

A disciple is a follower, one who accepts and assists in spreading the doctrines of another. The disciple of the month  is a student who emulates and demonstrates the character of Jesus Christ. The fruits of the spirit are shown through their actions namely: chastity, faithfulness, generosity, gentleness, goodness, joy, kindness, love, modesty, patience, peace, self-control.

The Holy Spirit will prompt them to examine their thoughts, words and actions and compare them with the Word of God.
