St. Peter Academy: Where Students Learn and Are Loved

“I love my school!” says first grader, Eveie. “We have awesome teachers.” If you are looking for a school where students from fifteen months through grade 6 are learning and loved, then look no further! St. Peter Academy in South Boston is just that place. Students at St. Peter Academy engage deeply with material – learning necessary skills while also learning to think critically about the world around them. Whether it is toddlers using flashlights to learn explore light and dark or students in grade 3 and 4 visiting the Harvard Museum of Natural History as part of their study of animals, St. Peter students engage in developmentally appropriate and hands-on learning. Parents like Elizabeth Rice see this reflected in their children. “St. Peter has a rich and rigorous curriculum that has renewed my son s interest in learning. He brings the information he learns in the classroom home and applies it to everyday situations.” Beyond engaging and rigorous academics, St. Peter students are known and deeply cared for by their teachers. At St. Peter it’s not uncommon to see teachers enjoying lunch with students, playing soccer with them, or giving individualized attention after school. With small class sizes and a focus on meeting the needs of each child, the close bond between students and teachers make school a truly special place. “I am constantly reminded of how lucky we are to have my son’s teacher. His dedication to his classroom is inspiring. He is totally committed to making sure his students have access to the curriculum by using creative, fun, and individually tailored lessons”, says Rice. Come see the students of St. Peter Academy in action by visiting our Schoolwide Open House on Tuesday, January 23 from 9-11am and 3-6pm.
