St. Peter Catholic Academy is a school firmly rooted in the Catholic Faith and Christ-centered love. Aware of our ever changing, culturally diverse population, our belief is that every individual student should be allowed to grow into each step of development with a proper sense of self-worth as a child of God, to make responsible decisions from the choices that he/she encounters. We recognize that teachers and parents are co-educators of children; therefore we strive to create a supportive environment with open lines of communication among administrators, parents, teachers and students. We work toward academic excellence, enhancing the social and emotional skills of our students and recognizing that each student has unique, God-given talents and skills. We encourage students to succeed to their highest cognitive level in order to meet the challenges of life in the Twenty-first Century.
