Our Academics

St. Peter’s offers our students a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum, which is in full compliance with the latest standards from the New York State Education Department.

Many of the subjects are offered on different levels (Scholars, Honors, Regents). A difference within a subject may reflect a difference in the level of difficulty, or a variation in the amount of work expected or both.

Signum Fidei Scholars Academy

The Signum Fidei Scholars Academy offers a program where students of exceptional promise nurture aptitudes, develop skills and grow in faith. The curriculum is designed to challenge the most capable student, providing him the opportunities to develop the abilities necessary to excel in higher education and become leaders in society.

Scholars study Latin in conjunction with a modern world language and acquire college credit through Advanced Placement coursework. These students engage in independent research projects and co-curricula academic and cultural activities that enrich classroom instruction.

All scholars participate in our Lasallian Youth Group, engage yearly in Service Learning Projects as lived expression of the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy, and work toward induction in the National Honor Society. Students complete their academic work with a Senior Capstone Project.

The Scholars Academy curriculum and enrichment program endeavor to form critical thinkers and life-long learners who will eventually take leadership roles in the Church, in the arts, business and government. Students enter to learn and leave to serve!
