General School Mission

"Saints Peter and Paul Parish, in the interest and purpose of propagating the Catholic faith, does establish, support, and encourage Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School.

Saints Peter and Paul School manifests itself as being an educational opportunity above and beyond secular education. It does so in the following manner:

It recognizes the rights of children to receive an education. It provides instruction in math, science, social studies, and language arts to allow the child to develop intellectually.

It recognizes parents as the primary educators of their children. The school provides an atmosphere in which the family and faculty together work toward the well-rounded personal and social development of the child.

It recognizes the responsibility of the Catholic community to provide Catholic education for its children. This transcends secular education by developing active members of the Body of Christ, the Church. This is best taught in a caring and loving atmosphere created by the relationships of teachers to teachers, teachers to students, and students to students.

It recognizes the need for catechesis in nourishing life lived in the Spirit of Christ. This need is fulfilled by providing religious instruction, attending Mass and liturgies, and receiving the sacraments of the Church.

Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School, by virtue of its existence, provides continuing evidence of Christ and His Church on Earth.
