Greetings from the Principal
Welcome to Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School! Our school has a rich tradition having been established in 1853, 167 years ago. While we take a lot of pride in our school and alumni successes, we’re equally as excited about our future.
This year we are continuing meeting the goals of our ambitious three-year Strategic Plan that was created by our School Board. Under the direction of a paid professional school planner, nearly forty hours were devoted to this project by a committee comprised of representatives of our School Board, Advancement Board, Home and School, Parish Council, school administration, and faculty. It is exciting and positions us well to continue to be the pre-eminent choice for Catholic education in Naperville.
