Welcome to St. Peter Lutheran School
We are happy that you're looking into what St. Peter Lutheran School is all about. We welcome the opportunity to get to know you better through this site, school tours, and many other forms of communications and media.
We have served Arlington Heights and the surrounding communities for over 150 years. It continues to be our privilege to provide Christian education to the children that enroll in our school. We are committed to engaging students with an unparalleled and comprehensive education grounded in God’s Word to prepare them for a Full Life In Christ.
What you will find different at St. Peter, is an amazing group of teachers and supporters who love to help students achieve their God-given potential. We spend much of our day learning, laughing, and experiencing God's love for us and the world He created. Our goal for students when they leave St. Peter is that they are positive-Christian influencers on the world and well rounded confident leaders. In education it can be easy to focus only on tests scores, at St. Peter we know our students are so much more than that as loved children of God!
I look forward to seeing your family smile on campus soon, please visit our enrollment page to start the first steps to leading a Full Life in Christ.
