Saint Peter’s Catholic School provides an environment that fosters each child’s moral, intellectual, physical, emotional and social development. As our motto is “Saints and Scholars,” we form leaders in academics and servants in faith.
When it came time for their children to start school, John and Catherine Stephens of Beaufort felt St. Peter’s Elementary School was where their children would receive the best overall education. In the two years their daughter, Laura, age 5, has been enrolled, “we have been amazed at what she has learned about our faith,” said her mother Catherine. “She says things out of the blue like, ‘Jesus wants us to help people when they are sick.’”
The Navy brought our family to the Lowcountry almost six years ago, but Saint Peter’s Catholic School made Beaufort our true home. My children have flourished both spiritually and academically at our very special school. During our first year at Saint Peter’s, our family suffered an unexpected tragedy, and the school community embraced us. Five years later, that support and love has only grown. Maura, Abigail, and William go to school every day, feeling secure because their teachers and fellow classmates know of their loss, and are sensitive, kind, and empathetic. Faith has sustained us these past five years. It is with great joy that I witness my children’s faiths grow, especially when they participate in weekly school Mass. Their minds are challenged in the classroom, their bodies in gym class and recess, and their creativity in art and music classes. Saint Peter’s Catholic School is our second home, and I firmly believe it was Providence who sent our family to this loving place.
I chose St. Peter’s Catholic School for my son because of the fun memories I have there as a child, and because of the bright future ahead for this wonderful school. My son is thriving in a stimulating environment with strong Christian values, where he gets individual attention and exciting opportunities. He looks forward to going to school as much as I did when I attended St. Peter’s. Some things have changed, but a quality education never does! St. Peter’s offers something you can’t find anywhere else. Go Cardinals!
St. Peter’s alumnus, Matt Flewelling and his wife Jennifer, (currently the K-4 teacher at St. Peter’s), have their son, Matt Jr., enrolled at the school. “We both had Catholic educations and this was something we very much wanted to continue with our own child.”
