What People Say

St. Peter’s exceeded all of our expectations! We moved our son to St. Peter’s from another parochial school. St. Peter’s was a perfect fit for him. It’s a small school where students and their families get to know teachers, administrators, and each other quickly, and where everyone is made to feel welcome. Teachers and staff are dedicated to student success. Faith and values are taught, and kindness and compassion are demonstrated daily. St. Peter’s promotes a sense of community and cooperation that we didn’t experience in our prior school, and it is academically excellent. I could not be more pleased with our experience there. Our son has graduated, but we hate to leave.

In small classes, shy children gain an increased sense of security and confidence.   The central location gives students many cultural opportunities–field trips, classes with the Columbia Conservatory of Dance, the music program offered with USC.  What other school offers these opportunities?

Leslie JamisonAlumni Parent

I just love this school for my son, who is in K4! His teachers are so awesome. He has learned so much since school has started and he loves his teachers and loves going to school! Thanks for all you do!

Zippora SmithCurrent Parent

If I could double the number of stars, I would! It is a wonderful school!

Kelly NeiserCurrent Parent

The student body really reflects the diversity–not only of Columbia–but our entire country.  Where else can you see the beauty of our country, all in one small, close-knit community? Plus, it’s a really safe and loving environment for students as well as their families.

Jocelyn GnirrepAlumni Parent and Former PTO President

My children are knowledgeable, respectful, loving and faithful due in large part to St. Peter’s School.  The generosity St. Peter’s has shown to us is a shining example of faith in practice for all to see.  The Flake Family loves St. Peter’s!

I learned exceptional reading, writing and analytical skills in Catholic school–coupled with the Christian values of honesty, integrity, persistence, and self-discipline.  I am so grateful for the academic and spiritual wealth given to me.  Now it’s my honor and privilege to support Catholic education.  St. Peter’s Catholic School is the place to be, if you want the very best for your child.

I love St. Peter’s because we are challenged to go above and beyond standards. 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-.”

Fifth Grader 1Current Student

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 Grader 2Current Student

St. Peter’s is a loving environment in which students, teachers, and even parents have a chance to love Jesus and to grow in our Catholic faith. Another reason that I love St. Peter’s is because the teachers, including Mrs. Preston, are kind, caring and are always here, at St. Peter’s, looking out for me.

Sixth Grader 1Current Student

St. Peter’s is a great school because the teachers sometimes challenge us by taking us on field trips like Washington, D.C. and Starbase. It strengthens my faith by the whole school going to Mass every Wednesday.
