Lessons beyond the classroom.

We are Falcons. We believe that the lessons learned outside of the classroom are just as important as the lessons learned inside. Because of this, we strive to create opportunities for our students to develop their talents, become leaders and define their sense of self. This is why our Falcon pride flies high.

Today’s students.
Tomorrow’s leaders.

The Preschool Program at Ss. Peter & Paul Catholic School provides children with a loving and caring environment where they can grow and become more aware of the world around them. Through many activities offered, we create a positive self-image as well as expand the child’s horizons mentally, physically and emotionally.



Excellence takes commitment.

SPPCS is a school built on excellence and our challenge is to continue to provide educational excellence to future generations, to grow and evolve our academic and extracurricular programs and to provide our students with the highest quality of faculty and academic instruction possible. These challenges are made more attainable by the commitment of our SPPCS friends and families.
