Our dedication is clear in the execution of the four pillars of our mission:
Instilling strong Catholic values
Fostering a life of faith and servant leadership
Providing a challenging academic environment
And, inspiring each student to shine to the fullest extent of his or her God-given potential.
These pillars remind us we are here to guide students as they grow spiritually, academically, physically, and emotionally.
Students have opportunities to grow in faith and servant leadership through morning prayer, retreats, hands-on service opportunities, weekly Mass participation, FOCUS circles, RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) groups, religion classes, adoration, bible studies, and daily infusion of Catholic values in every class.
Prince of Peace Catholic School is committed to preparing students academically. A focus on the 21st Century skills of communication, collaboration, creativity, and computational and critical thinking prepares students for an ever-changing workforce where these skills are essential. Over the past few years, we have concentrated professional development to promote these skills through a shift to rigorous content, project-based learning opportunities, incorporation of a campus STEM initiative, promoting a growth mindset in all constituents, and broadening understanding of the needs of students with learning differences. In pushing students to challenge themselves and learn through productive struggles, it is necessary to offer support systems that allow all students to grow.
Applications are currently being accepted for the 2021-2022 school year.
