Our strong tradition of Catholic
education in Trenton began in 1860 when a small one-room school house was built
at at 101 Queen Street. In 1884, a second school was built at the corner of King
and Queen Streets. Teaching
positions were held by the Congregation of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Ville
Marie, Montreal until 1902 when the Sisters of Charity from the House of
Providence, Kingston took over the running of the school.
Reverend M. McDonald supervised the
construction of the Queen Street location in 1925. The new addition was built
in 1977 and it included the library, gymnasium, and kindergarten rooms.
Our new school, located on Tripp
Blvd, was opened in January 2014. We are blessed with a vibrant learning
environment comprised of 11 classrooms, a comfortable learning commons, and a
beautiful gymnasium. Our yards are a wonderful place in which our students learn
and play. Our Peace Garden, designed by students and built by parents and staff,
was completed in May of 2014.
The St. Peter Catholic School crest
was designed by a former student and accurately depicts our multicultural and
bilingual tradition as well as our spiritual commitment to Catholic Education in
