Welcome to Christ, Prince of Peace!

We are a co-ed Catholic school in west St. Louis County enrolling students 3 years of age through 8th grade. We inspire students to achieve academic excellence, deepen their faith, develop social responsibility through service learning and foster lifelong friendships. We encourage you to visit our vibrant school to experience the CPOP difference!

Learn What Makes CPOP Exceptional

Our school is alive with vibrant faculty, energized students and committed and caring parents. We have a mission and a purpose to “Inspire Faith and Learning” and this is woven into all we do at CPOP.

What Parents Love About CPOP

Faith & Serivce

Daily prayer, priest presence, weekly mass and service projects help students build character, deepen their faith, develop social responsibility and foster lifelong friendships. CPOP nurtures a faith commitment that inspires a joyful personal relationship with God and promotes Catholic principles of justice, peace and compassion.

Individualized Attention

An 18:1 student-teacher ratio and small class sizes guarantee personalized attention and the ability to focus on the individual child. Educational resources (including a learning consultant, reading resource teacher) allow for differentiated instruction in the classrooms and programs to stretch and support student growth.

Comprehensive Curriculum

CPOP’s intellectually challenging program of studies includes teaching advanced research, STEM concepts, computer, literature, math, social studies, religion, music, art, Spanish, P.E. and more. Eighth grade students have the option to take Algebra. Our curriculum is designed to help students reach their full potential in a challenging yet nurturing academic environment.

Welcoming Community

The “spirit of joy” pervades our campus. We are a warm, welcoming and involved community, and CPOP offers a home where each child is well-cared-for and loved. Teachers act as co-educators with committed and caring parents and children are energized and engaged.

Extra Curricular Activities

We offer aftercare as well as an extensive list of extra-curricular activities including band, choir, Scouts, Math Facts Scholars, Sewing Club, Math Club, Art Club, Speech Team, Student Council, Bricks for Kids, Dance, Sports, Chess, Girls on the Run, Mad Science, Middle School musical and many more.

Early Childhood Center

Our competitively priced, full and part-time ELC is for potty-trained children starting at age 3. The flexible program provides a loving and caring environment while preparing for kindergarten. We help develop the child’s awareness that he or she is unique and capable of limitless knowledge.
