About Our School

Thank You for Your Interest in our school. We believe that Christ, Prince of Peace is one of the finest schools in the area, and we are proud to share what makes CPOP stand apart.

If I were to take you on a personal tour of our school, in one classroom you might see fourth grade buddies reading with the kindergartners. In the science lab, the students could be conducting an experiment on photosynthesis. Students might be graphing math problems in pie charts and bar graphs in our state-of-the-art computer lab. You would undoubtedly see students providing immediate feedback to their teacher using a variety of technology tools or typing up their latest writing assignment using laptops from one of our laptop carts.  You might also witness middle school students using their Chromebooks to gain a deeper understanding of our environment and the challenges it faces.

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” which is woven into all we do.

We welcome the opportunity to show you what a wonderful fit Christ, Prince of Peace could be for your family.

Mrs. Cindy Fichter
Principal

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.
