St. Peter is an inclusive community with a mission to develop the spiritual potential of all students as much as their academic and social potentials.
Academic programs at St. Peter exist within a spiritual orientation based on the Catholic faith. The tone of the school reflects a theme of respect and responsibility, a collaborative approach to problem solving, and a community focus made up of students, staff, parents, parish, and the wider community.
As of means towards the development of a Catholic Graduate, the following are encouraged:
A significant consciousness, in both teachers and students, of their responsibility to express Christian faith through what they say and do
Close cooperation between the home, the school and the parish community
An atmosphere of mutual tolerance, trust and respect
Positive discipline: a sense of order and student responsibility
A spirit of social concern: locally, nationally, and internationally; Strong student-teacher relationships
Faculty involvement in all school affairs
Common prayer experiences for staff and students, especially in the form of liturgical celebration
Grade level retreats.
The school comes together to celebrate school masses with its affiliated parish, St. Peter-in-Chains Cathedral, led by Fr. Luis Lapinid, and our Board Spiritual Leader, Fr. Paul Massel. A school chapel is also accessible to staff and students for personal reflection
