St. Peter's School says

St. Peters Elementary School was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1878. Since its foundation, St. Peters continues to serve all economic levels of the community. Through our partnership with parents, who we recognize as the primary educators of their children, we provide a strong Catholic education. We strive to deepen each childs understanding of the life of Christ through worship, example, and by providing opportunities for them to practice their Catholic faith. It is expected that upon graduation all students will exhibit not only an understanding of their Catholic identity, but also an ability to put this understanding into practice. St. Peters School is a vital part of the parish, a predominantly Latino community in San Franciscos Mission District. Following Christs example to reach out to all people, St. Peters School is committed to educating children in their Catholic faith throughout our curriculum. The priests, administrators, teachers and staff strive to support the parents in their role as primary educators of their children. In this faith partnership, we worship and inculcate the values of Jesus into all of our endeavors together. schools purpose is to proclaim Christs message of salvation as the basis for a viable Catholic community.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
