Founded in 1926, St. Peter Prince of the Apostles School has consistently developed students with big hearts and strong minds in the San Antonio community. Offering full day classes for Pre-Kindergarten children starting at age three through eight grade, our continued success has largely been built on the excellent quality and qualifications of our faculty and staff, dedicated families and school and church community. At St. Peter's, we not only focus on a strong academic foundation, but also on a well-balanced, healthy, spiritual experience for each child.
Small, focused class sizes, taught by experienced teachers reinforces St. Peter’s adherence to high-quality academic standards. St. Peter's is a two-time winner of the prestigious National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and a part of the University of the Incarnate Word Brainpower Connection. In the 2013-2014 school year, St. Peter's had 31 students from fourth through eight grade invited to participate in the nationally recognized Duke University Talent Search. Our distinguished fine arts and sports programs and adoption of the Healthy Schools Initiative are just a few of the ways St. Peter's builds healthy minds and well-rounded students.
Keeping true to its roots of accommodating students from diverse backgrounds and cultures, the St. Peter’s community draws students from almost 70 zip codes in the metro San Antonio area.

Our children, formed in Christian values; give witness to the Gospel in the Church and in society.
St. Peter's School is an expression of the parish's belief that each child is a unique gift of God, a special promise for the future. Each deserves respect, affirmation, and support in the development of his/her talents and individuality. The school helps each child reach full potential with awarenes of being God's child.
We recognize the parents are the primary educators of their children. The school supports and reinforces the parent's desire to give their child a holistic education based on sound academics and Christian values.
