SSPP History
Father Robert Coine became Pastor in 1999 and directed the building of the new parish church and improvements to the school facilities. Father James Nash was appointed Pastor in 2014 and continues to foster a spiritual and academic community rooted in faith that will continue to provide for the Catholic community of the Eastern Shore. The new high school campus was opened adjacent to Saints Peter & Paul Church in the fall of 2021.
SSPP Crest

The steeple of the Church is a replica of Saints Peter & Paul Church, which is the cornerstone of our educational and spiritual ministry. The Keys represent those given to Saint Peter and symbolizes the key to heaven and the Church’s authoritative role on Earth. The Sword represents Saint Paul and demonstrates strength and courage. Finally, Mens-Corpus-Spiritus, is the Latin for Mind-Body-Spirit, which is our school motto.

  • School Colors: Navy Blue and White
  • School Prayer: Saints Peter and Paul, Pray for Us. Jesus, Live in Our Hearts, Forever.
  • Alma Mater: "Blue and White"

Blue and White will always linger
With each new and passing year.
As an emblem of true honor
We will hold you dear.
We will ever honor thee
And true we'll ever be.
For we are your sons and daughters
Marching on for thee.

Alma Mater, Alma Mater
When we leave your sheltering walls
We shall leave an echo ringing
Through your treasured halls.
We will leave an echo ringing in the silent night
While our memories are singing
Of the Blue and White.
