Philosophy Statement

Saints Peter & Paul High School is a Catholic, co‚Äźeducational, college preparatory parish school under the auspices of the Diocese of Wilmington, Delaware. As a Roman Catholic institution of learning, we strive to empower our students with the strength of character, ethics, conviction, and knowledge necessary to cope with and exert influence upon our dynamic world. As we increasingly challenge our students from year to year, we foster their roles as independent thinkers, active participants in life, and responsible citizens of a global community. By creating a diverse and demanding program of academics, student life opportunities, and spiritual formation, we encourage our students to take an active ownership in learning, to accept the challenge of intellectual and personal responsibility, and to strive for excellence in all things.
 
Since our school is an integral part of the Church’s mission, we strive to create an environment of Christian community by imparting to our students the mandate of Christ to work for justice and peace in the world, to actively engage in service to others, and to maintain a moral and spiritual code of conduct that is rooted in Gospel values and in the teachings of Christ.
 
Saints Peter & Paul High School recognizes that education is a cooperative and communicative venture; we therefore work closely with our students, their parents, and the community in providing a challenging and safe environment for the academic, physical, and spiritual development of our students.  While stressing discipline, order, and respect for self and others, we encourage freedom of expression and are committed to graduating students who are life-long learners and pursuers of the truth, who recognize and appreciate the diversity that is present in our world, and who can, with the grace of God, successfully meet the challenges of the 21st Century.
