Greetings from The Principal
May the Peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!
St. Peter Catholic School is called to a mission that is grounded in the love of Christ and the faith of the Catholic Church. In the tradition of St. Peter the first Pope of the church, our school invites students and families from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds into a community of teachers, support staff, families and learners, of faith and faith-in-action.
St. Peter Catholic School welcomes your interest in our School. It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that we invite you to become a part of our community and ministry of St. Peter, who celebrates their faith every day while honing their educational skills. St. Peter offers a wide variety of opportunities for our children to be active in their faith life as well as in the community through participation in activities such as our music programs, athletics, drama, service projects, and student leadership.
As a faith-centered educational community, we nurture each student’s growth academically, spiritually, and physically. Our intellectually, socially and spiritually stimulating environment encourages students to adopt a way of life that embraces and challenges them to pursue with equal vigor the goals of academic excellence and faithfulness to Christ.
Our students are given not just the knowledge and skills they will need to achieve the future, but also the faith and virtues that can make them women and men of outstanding character. The 2016-2017 school year is going to be another year of growth, filled with excitement, and wonderful memories. Our new Family Life Center is currently under construction which will add to our campus by providing academic classrooms, gym, locker rooms, cafeteria and full service kitchen. This new construction is scheduled for completion in late 2017.
For those of you who may not know St. Peter Catholic School and parish, here is some important information to ponder...Today St. Peter Catholic School celebrates 64 years of service to the greater DeLand community and the faculty and clergy, in partnership with our parents, challenge our students to achieve academic and personal excellence and promote a community of faith. Together, let us make a difference in our school, our parish, our homes, our community and our world.
