The Juarez Family

We are the Juarez family, Brian, Ana, Briana (7), Edgar (5), and Sebastian (5 mo.). Back in February of 2018 the school had an open house; as we took a tour around we slowly fell in love with the idea of Briana starting school at the age of 3! As many of you know little ones’ brains are like sponges so we knew right away that Briana would learn so much not just academically but spiritually. Ana grew up in the Catholic Church but didn’t go to Catholic School so when we heard and saw what a great opportunity we had for Briana, right away we knew St. Peter’s was the choice for us. Yes, we had doubts about paying but thankfully St. Peter’s has a financial aid plan and that helped us even more with our decision. As years went by Ana started working in the aftercare program that the school provides and Edgar started K3. We have loved and continue to love all the support from St. Peter’s. We are grateful that our kids have made amazing friendships that eventually turned into family. What we love most is the kids continuing to grow into their faith and us as parents get to witness how beautifully kids talk about God and his work. St. Peter’s has such a great environment and we love how small the classes are so it gives teachers time to work with each individual student. We love all our teachers, staff, Nurse Becca, Mrs. Borgan, and Ms. Feltner.

Our family moved to Beaufort from PA in June. Having attended a good Catholic school system, we had high expectations for our children to start 2nd and 3rd grade. The transition was seamless and they quickly felt right at home at Saint Peter’s.  The principal, teachers and staff are all wonderful, dedicated and caring. We are so impressed with the education, both religious and academic.  Saint Peter’s feels like family and we could not be more appreciative.

A Family’s Shared their Experience after the 1OOth Day…

100 days of school, 100 days of being a normal kid, 100 days of PE, Spanish, Music, Technology, Atrium and Art, 100 days my son has been surrounded by God’s glory in a place full of acceptance and love, 100 days of a normal schedule from 7:30am-5:30pm, 100 days of normalcy during a pandemic, 100 days that mommy and daddy can go to work to support our family and community . . .

Beyond blessed for the St. Peter’s Catholic School, teachers and staff for showing up every day to be a light and beacon of hope during an awful time. Despite the uncertainty in our chaotic world, we have normalcy on Lady’s Island in St. Peter’s Catholic School and for that I am forever grateful.

Daniel Feltner

Having your children grow up to be well-rounded, educated individuals is something that Alumnus Daniel Feltner understands as a goal of many parents. He attended St. Peter’s and now has daughters, Delilah (4th Grade) and Cami (2nd Grade), enrolled at the school. “It was important for us to enroll our children at St. Peter’s where we knew they would get an excellent Catholic-centered education, and also learn about how they should treat others.”

Stephanie Whiteside

Stephanie Carroll Whiteside was a member of St. Peter’s very first 1st grade class in 1991. A graduate of St. Peter’s 8th grade in 1998, she is now a pharmacist and has her sons, Carter (4th Grade) and Gibson (1st) enrolled at St. Peter’s. “My husband and I decided from the get go that we wanted our children to have the same Catholic education that we did, My family can trace back five generations and we all received Catholic educations. So it was very important to us to continue the tradition and offer the solid education along with the strong faith formation.”
