Academics

St. Peter Academy is more than just one of the finest schools in Bergen County – it has been named a top educational institution in the country. The Academy has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and named a National Blue Ribbon School. This coveted award affirms the hard work of our educators, families, and community in creating a safe and welcoming school so our children master challenging and engaging content.

As a National Blue Ribbon school, the administration, teachers and staff at St. Peter Academy are noted as visionaries, innovators, and leaders. In addition to the Blue Ribbon acknowledgement, St. Peter Academy has also earned accreditation from the Middle States Association, which is an external, objective validation of the Academy’s quality and student achievement.

Archdiocesan Mapping
St. Peter Academy is involved in the Archdiocese of Newark ongoing curriculum mapping project that will result in the development of K-12 core maps in each subject. This process has been implemented within the Archdiocese to ensure that a consistent, clearly articulated curriculum infused with Gospel values is being provided to all students in our schools. To learn more, visit the Archdiocesan website.

In developing the entire person, St. Peter Academy students learn outside the classroom, as well. Annual trips to the United States Military Academy at West Point, United Nations and other key locations throughout New Jersey and the metropolitan New York create avenues for our children to grow from real-world experiences. For a well-rounded education, we also participate in Law Enforcement Against Drugs (L.E.A.D.) and similar programs.
