Queen of Peace High School is a four-year coeducational parochial secondary school that shares in the mission of the Roman Catholic Church to prepare and educate its members to proclaim and live out the Gospel message. QPHS, therefore, fosters in its students a mature faith, whereby they come to recognize the real and lasting value of human activity in this world. Through this growth in faith, students will come to a new vision of God, themselves and the society in which they live.
Queen of Peace High School acknowledges its responsibility to be a Catholic educational community in which staff and students endeavor to build and live community in a climate of respect, trust and friendship. In a nurturing, safe and orderly environment, the School works to foster among its students a social conscience that is sensitive to the needs of all, regardless of ethnic origin, religious affiliation or economic status. It promotes a recognition that all people are entitled to the dignity granted them by a just and loving God. We recognize and appreciate the diversity of the student body and promote understanding, acceptance and respect.
Aware that service is a natural by-product of authentic community, Queen of Peace High School challenges its students to accept personal responsibility to live out their basic baptismal commitment by sharing their talents and goods with others. As such, we provide many opportunities for our students to participate in service projects both locally and abroad.. We are dedicated to developing men and women who are prepared to take an active role in life as good, moral citizens with strong Catholic values.
Aware that high school is but one step in the educational formation process, QPHS emphasizes a strong fundamental intellectual experience that will serve as a basis for lifelong learning. The School provides a challenging college preparatory program that encourages academic excellence and challenges students to think critically and creatively while at the same time remaining flexible enough to meet the educational needs of all students.
QPHS also acknowledges that students’ personal growth necessitates an integrated social life within the school and beyond it. To this end, the School provides a comprehensive program of co-curricular activities and athletics that enables students to discover their interests, talents and gifts and develop skills that will assist them throughout life. The School community places emphasis on student freedom with responsibility. As students advance, they pass through a framework of guided decision-making concerning their religious, academic, social and athletic involvement. QPHS strives to implement processes of learning that prove beneficial to students, thereby allowing every opportunity to succeed and excel.
