Upper School (Grades 5-8)

The Upper School imbues students with self-advocacy in a Christ-centered learning environment. Leadership, respect, community, and service form the cornerstones. The Upper School faculty is constantly evolving to meet the needs of adolescent students, develop a sense of self in each student, and provide academic guidance. As students prepare for high school academically, they also enjoy the opportunity to join clubs and groups that help to develop them socially.

Successful Upper School students are academically and socially competent; able to work collaboratively with adults and peers; comfortable in their own ideas and opinions; and possess strong character and work ethic. Saints Peter and Paul graduates attend the area’s private and public high schools with confidence and the ability to succeed.

Graduates of Sts. Peter and Paul succeed at area high schools and a significant percentage earn academic honors. In 2009, the valedictorians of all three local area high schools were graduates of Sts. Peter and Paul. This is not uncommon.
