St. Peter’s helps prepare your child for college in several ways. We provide personal college counseling early to allow families to discover the best college and university options available to them. We also prepare your child for college through our strong language and writing programs. Moreover, we continue to build the young person’s vocabulary throughout high school, and our weekly Forum and regular Socratic seminars provide ample practice in the art of focused conversation.
All graduating seniors participate in our Senior Tutorial program in which they must research and write an extensive paper under the guidance of one of their professors, then deliver and defend this paper at a public venue before a panel of judges.
St. Peter’s Classical School is a college preparatory school emphasizing a classical liberal arts education that is informed and guided by the teachings of historic Orthodox Christianity. Our mission is to educate our students by cultivating the intellect, building character, and nurturing the life of the spirit.
Though young and small, St. Peter’s is becoming a noted private school of Orthodox as well as classical education in our area and across the nation. Our students have won National Latin Awards, Duke Talent recognition, as well as citywide art contests. We hosted the first area meeting of classical and liberal arts school headmasters. Also, the Farah Foundation gave us a grant to host a conference on Orthodox Schools, which we held for teachers from across the country representing several Orthodox jurisdictions. Saint Peter’s is accredited through AdancedED, a noted authority for private education enterprises.
We hope you will join us for a tour and learn what makes St. Peter’s so special.
