Sts. Peter and Paul School curriculum aims to develop the total child through four pillars:

  1. Moral and spiritual development
  2. Intellectual and cultural information
  3. Social Responsibility
  4. Physical Fitness

The cooperation of parents in this area is vital. Such cooperation involves: 1. Participation in Sunday Mass; 2. Parental preparation of children for the Sacraments; 3. Special parish liturgies, adult education class and retreats.


Preschool is all about discovery. During this time, we teach the basics to kids, giving them a strong foundation for the elementary years. This includes academic concepts of literacy and math, such as counting, coloring, and letter recognition and developing large and fine motor skills, such as walking in a line and using a pencil. It also includes social and school-readiness skills, such as making friends, sharing, and taking turns.

As a parent or guardian, you will notice that by the time your child graduates from Pre-K, they will have learned a lot.


Everything we know about the universe, from how trees reproduce to what an atom is made up of, is the result of scientific research and experiment. Learning science develops knowledge, problem solving skills, boost critical thinking, cultivates a passion for learning, and holds the key to future and technology for our children.


Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic School is committed to enhancing our students learning by facilitating the use of practical technology, providing instruction on how to apply technology as a working tool.


In a Catholic School, a Faith-permeated curriculum develops the whole child by teaching and nourishing them mentally, socially, physically, and spiritually. Students will learn the importance of service, commitment, dedication, and self-discipline. In turn, this builds the child's character and encourages academic success.


Arts subjects encourage self-expression and creativity and can build confidence as well as a sense of individual identity. It is also increasingly recognized as a driver of the innovative thinking needed to solve our world's most pressing problems.


Mathematics is one of the main subjects of our life. Math can be hard to most people, but it makes life simpler. Someone who understands math is able to understand basic life skills such as managing a budget, understand costs, balance a bank account, and subtract balances which are essential skills as adults.

Physical Education

Physical education has been shown to be an essential part of a student's education. It helps students to stay healthy, learn teamwork skills, and have fun. In addition, physical education can also help students maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of obesity.

Listening, speaking, reading and writing are the main skills you need to communicate in any language, even if that's your native langue.

English is the official language of the United States, but due to the large immigration of people from various Spanish speaking regions, Spanish is also a dominant language in Miami and is spoken by 60% of the population. By learning Spanish, you'll be better able to communicate within the local community.

Literature (Reading)

Literature is filled with human reactions and emotions. It allows a person to step back in time and learn about life and culture from our ancestors, giving us a greater appreciation for the past. We see through the ways history is recorded, in the forms of manuscripts, through speech itself, but also in the ways of music and arts, as they are interwoven together.

Social Studies

Social studies subjects foster a deep understanding of societal structures, cultivate critical thinking, and contribute to a sense of civic responsibility. They empower individuals to navigate complex global issues, fostering informed and engaged citizens essential for addressing the challenges of our interconnected world.


Music education nurtures a profound connection to emotions, enhances cognitive skills, and fosters teamwork. It is a powerful medium that not only cultivates artistic expression but also develops discipline and perseverance, laying a foundation for well-rounded individuals capable of creative problem-solving in various aspects of life.
