                       Welcome to St. Peter's School
 St. Peter's School was established by Rev. Henry Sank in 1956 as the first Catholic school in Southern Maryland that was never racially segregated. Our school cultivates spiritual growth and academic excellence by anchoring our students in Christian virtues. As a ministry of St. Peter's Church, all aspects of our school are faithful to Jesus Christ and the teachings of the Catholic Church. Classes are currently offered for Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth Grade students.

St. Peter's Catholic School, its faculty, parish staff and school community, strive to provide the opportunity for all students to develop their intellectual, social, physical, moral, and spiritual dimensions.
This mission has three dimensions: The message revealed by God, which the Church proclaims; the fellowship in the life of the Holy Spirit; and service to the Christian Community and others.
We affirm the belief that Catholic education is an essential ministry of the Church. It is the shared responsibility of parents, the school and parish staff, and the school and parish communities to create and maintain an atmosphere that will evoke in our students a realization of their unique God-given talents and enable them to witness God, not only by their faith, but by their actions.
In recognizing the challenges confronting Catholic education today, we work to provide a flexible approach to learning, sensitive to the uniqueness of the individual, encouraging programs that will help each student reach his or her maximum potential. We affirm the need for continual evaluation of the school, in the light of this challenge.
Given the education of our students as a vital ministry of the Church, we at St. Peter's continually strive to instill the love of God and love, care, and concern for each other so that each child will become an active contributor to the Church and the community. The school, then, is to be community enlivened, animated, and motivated by the Gospel Spirit of Love and Freedom.
We hope that the information on our website will acquaint you with our mission, our vision and the programs offered at St. Peter's. Please feel free to contact me at or 301-843-1955 if you are interested in learning more about our school.
