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; and
  • 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. Bill Moloney.  A school chapel is also accessible to staff and students for personal reflection
