What Parents and Students Say

“Our son gets in the car every day thanking us for sending him to St. Peter’s! It is a wonderful school and community, high class education, and phenomenal support system– truly a Godsend to our family!” Jennifer Roberts, parent

“Amazing teachers and support faculty! An education second to none. Mrs. Preston is an exceptional principal and creates an atmosphere of mutual respect that engages faculty, students and parents. GREAT SCHOOL!” Catherine Norris, parent

“St. Peter’s makes me feel safe with kind teachers and a loving principal. St. Peter’s is the best Catholic school in South Carolina and deserves all the compliments it gets.” Fifth grade student

“I love St. Peter’s because we are challenged to go above and beyond. There’s always a lot of fun, and there’s always a lot of learning. ‘B+?’ our teachers will say, ‘an okay grade, yes, but you’re all capable of an A.'” Sixth grade student

“I love St. Peter’s because the teachers and Mrs. Preston are kind, caring, and always here, looking out for me.” Fifth grade student

“St. Peter’s gave me a sense of structure and discipline that a lot of my current peers never got. It becomes very clear in middle school and high school who had structure and discipline growing up, as those who didn’t, begin to fall by the wayside. At St. Peter’s, the focus is on both academics and learning to be a good person.” Sim Harmon, alumnus, who now works in finance in New York City.
