St. Peter & Paul: 100 Years of Excellence

A multitude of history exists at Sts. Peter & Paul School in downtown Lexington.

2013 marks 100 years for the building at 423 W. Short St., originally St. Paul’s School.

In 1989, St. Paul School (Short Street) and St. Peter School (Barr Street) merged to form Sts. Peter & Paul School.

The school has educated thousands of children in a Catholic, faith-centered environment and has made significant strides in just the past five years.

SPPS underwent a major renovation to create state-of-the-art facilities for first-eighth grades and expanded its Early Childhood Campus, located at 133 Barr St., serving infants (6-weeks-old) through Kindergarten.

The SPPS vision also includes an arts-infused curriculum to enhance academics and provide opportunities that children might not otherwise experience.

All students take visual arts classes that include pottery, using the school’s on-site kiln.

SPPS is a national Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, while the school also helps students wherever they may fall academically. Reading, math and resource specialists assist students ranging from the exceptional learner to the gifted and talented.

SPPS’s historic renovated theatre and full-size gymnasium are available for rent and are sought-after spaces by the community.
