Why Choose St. Peter Claver Catholic School?

We use data to personalize instruction

Our scholars showed outstanding growth last year. We use assessments three times a year to pinpoint each scholar's growth and to develop individual learning plans.

Our Model

We serve the whole child

Social/emotional learning is an important part of growing up. Many of us carry negative thinking habits learned in childhood into our adult lives. We help scholars identify and change negative thought patterns. This helps create a safe and healthy school community and enhances communication and achievement.
