About Us:

Founded by the School Sisters of Notre Dame in 1848, St. Peter the Apostle School has a long history of educating children in the Northern Liberties and Fishtown area.

At our Catholic school, students are given individual attention by a dedicated faculty. While our students come from many diverse backgrounds, at St. Peter the Apostle they are welcomed into a close-knit community that encourages a love of learning.

Our students go on to attend area high schools, including: Roman Catholic High School, West Catholic Preparatory High School, John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls' High School, Mercy Career and Technical High School, Little Flower Catholic Girls' High School, Neumann-Gorretti High School and Saint Joseph Preparatory School.
