WELCOME TO ST. PETER’S SCHOOL
Over 180 years of traditions and academic distinction.
We are now accepting applications for Preschool through 7th grade for Fall 2015. To schedule a visit to campus for a tour please contact us. For parents with children between the ages of 18 months to 3 years old, please join us for one of our free Storytime at St. Peter’s programs.
Founded in 1834, St. Peter’s is a prominent fixture in the Society Hill neighborhood in Philadelphia’s most historic area. St. Peter’s is truly a family, committed to providing the very best educational community for children.
The 7th graders have completed their Science Fair projects that they will take to the George Washington Carver Science Fair this Spring. As part of their preparation, they have a science board “defense” before the actual Carver Fair. Stop down in the “Underground” from 12:00 – 1:00 on Friday January 30th to see some of the wonderful research by our students.

Martin Luther King Day of Service
St. Peter’s School is participated in the annual Martin Luther King Day of Service on Monday, January 19th! St. Peter’s held an all school “day-on” for service in the Philadelphia area.
MLK Day of Service took place during usual school hours for all SPS students in grades PS – 8th.
We are lucky to have partnered with a variety of organizations for the day. Please take a look at the list below, as well as, the list of items needed to complete the projects.
Jane Addams Place: Lutheran Settlement House – In honor of Dr. King, Jane Addams Place, a homeless shelter for women and children, will be looking for volunteers to help out in a variety of service projects and activities for kids on Martin Luther King Day. The project includes arts and crafts. Our MLK Day of Service projects are geared towards making the shelter a better space for our residents.
Good Luck Foundation – Our Sew A Thon will consist of making bags for girls in other countries who are in need of personal hygiene items.
Wissahickon Restoration Volunteers- Volunteers will rescue native trees from strangling vines and remove invasive plant species from the Wissahickon Valley Park to help preserve and restore the health of the ecosystem of Philadelphia’s largest natural land parks.
Bethesda Broad Street Brunch Service – Bring, prepare and serve brunch at residence for formerly homeless men and women.
ArtSphere – One Art Sphere project at Fishtown Recreation Center and Playground has been an ongoing creative community collaboration since 2005. We use this site each year in MLK’s Annual Day of Service. You can join us as we continue to facilitate mural painting, stencil painting, origami and card making at our next community art event!
