After 108 years of academic excellence, Sts. Peter & Paul School remains at the leading edge of Catholic education! Starting in 2010, Sts. Peter & Paul School began the journey to enhance the learning environment for students through the implementation of a STEM based curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). STEM based schools are recognized as leaders in providing the 21st Century skills students need to be successful in today’s world.
Sts. Peter & Paul School is pleased to go beyond STEM to become a STREAM based school. The first school in the Southern Ohio area to pursue this distinction, Sts. Peter & Paul School seeks to expand the project-based, inquiry-driven STEM model into the areas of Religion and the Arts. We are proud of being a Catholic school, and this step will help us to more closely align our mission with our Catholic Identity. Additionally, highlighting and furthering the success of our Fine Arts program will help us meet our goal of educating the whole child.
This instructional/curricular model originated with the 2007 report by the National Academy of Sciences, Rising Above the Gathering Storm and STEM has become a widely used acronym to describe schools’ increased emphasis on science and math and greater use of technology in classrooms to better prepare students for eventual careers in one of the four disciplines.
As a STREAM school, SPPS emphasizes the fine arts program which includes an outstanding instrumental music ensemble, honor choir, and theater program.
Our Catholic tradition teaches us to make use of the strong intellects with which God gifted us – we use reason and inquiry in Religion classes to pursue ever deeper understandings of our faith life. Then, in a project-based environment we seek to make manifest God’s love for us through service learning in the community.
Critical minds and compassionate hearts – those are the hallmarks of a STREAM education at Sts. Peter and Paul School!

Great school. Great staff & teachers. My kids love this school.
My daughter is about to finish up her first year in preschool and we could not have been happier with the choice we made to send her to Sts. Peter and Paul. She has learned so much both spiritually and academically and we can not wait to see what next year has in store. Thank you Mrs. Kirby, Mrs. Grey and all of the staff.
“I must take time out to express my sincere gratitude to each one of you for enhancing the life of our son, Aidan, during these past nine years. Academically, his mind has been challenged and his education is well-rounded. We love the small school atmosphere and all the extracurricular activities, including drama, choir, band, Math Counts and Power of the Pen.”Jenny Massie
“This school is the most enthusiastic and most educational school I know. My student is a sixth grader and is in love with it!”Amy Williams
“Mrs. Apsley is the greatest! Our daughter loved being her student for the last two years and now Mrs. Apsley is our son’s teacher. The transition to third grade is a big change and still Harley comes home saying that he likes his teacher. He talks about what happens in class, knows a lot of the material, and is able to tell me what method was used by the teacher to explain the work he has done or needs to complete. Mrs. Apsley pays attention to each child, no matter how many students are in her class. She is consistent in her teaching and caring to the students. I hear she is funny too! “Rudina Woltz
