Greetings from the Principal

Dear Prospective Saints Peter and Paul Parent,
I am happy you are considering the many benefits of a Catholic education.Saints Peter and Paul has been partnering with parents in Naperville to provide an excellent Catholic education for students in grades Kindergarten through Eighth since 1853.  We are committed to excellence in preparing our students to think critically and become confident, sensitive, Catholic leaders modeled in the image of Jesus Christ. 
Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School provides a challenging, yet nurturing, Catholic environment where students come to know Jesus Christ and his love for them and know that they are loved and cared for by our wonderful staff.  We begin each day with school-wide prayer, we attend weekly Mass, and we actively live our faith through service to others and prayer for others.  It is hard to put into words the atmosphere or “feeling” people experience when they walk in our halls or visit our classrooms.That special “feeling” is the presence of God and His love for us that is easily felt but sometimes difficult to articulate.
Saints Peter and Paul embodies a vibrant and supportive parish that contributes to the overall good of the school and each school family.  The parish subsidy, family participation in fundraising, and the school endowments all help keep our tuition affordable and provide financial aid for qualifying families. We have many opportunities for parents to be involved in their child’s education and school experiences, whether it is on the field as a coach, volunteering in a classroom, or working with our Home & School Association.  We value and encourage our parents to be active participants in our community.  We are here to support your entire family. 
There are so many wonderful things happening at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School.   Please come take a tour so we can share in greater detail all we have to offer. We can also connect you with a current school family who would be happy to share their experiences at Saints Peter and Paul.  The step to join SSPP is one that will continue to bear much fruit now, and into a bright future! 
We look forward to taking the next steps together to enroll your child at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School and partnering with you on every level.  It is extremely important to our entire staff that your child’s experience is joyful, with a smooth transition!
Sincerely,
Tricia Weis
Principal
