"Grace and St. Peter's School is an independent Episcopal school affiliated with Grace and St. Peter's Church, located in Mt. Vernon, the cultural heart of Balimore.
Founded to serve the children of working parents, Grace and St. Peter's continues to bring together families of diverse backgrounds, religions, and races. With concern for each child's intellectual, physical, and spiritual needs, the school stresses reading, writing, mathematics, science, language, the arts, and moral development. The school draws on the cultural resources of the Mt. Vernon area as an integral part of the curriculum.
Grace and St. Peter's is committed to preparing each student to thrive socially and academically in secondary school. Supported by a caring faculty, children at Grace and St. Peter's grow to welcome the challenges of learning as they approach young adulthood. They are encouraged to recognize and appreciate their own strengths and to respect the unique qualities of their fellow students. In this way, they develop self-confidence and experience the value of shared successes.
CUM GAUDIO DISCIMUS - "we learn with joy" - is our motto. We offer the warmth and personal attention of a small school, the exhilaration and enrichment of the city, and an academic program of proven quality. The diverse racial, cultural, and religious backgrounds of our students make us one of Baltimore's most heterogeneous schools.
