The school day begins at 8:10 a.m. with homeroom and attendance period and goes until the end of the last class at 2:26 p.m. There are 8 periods of 42 minutes each.
St. Peter’s uses a 6-day routine rotation of student schedules labeled by letters A to F to give variety to the student schedule. Therefore, the student does not have the same sequencing of schedules every day. The calendar denotes the “Letter” schedule for each school day.
Special time schedules are utilized from time to time to incorporate special events and yet avoid omitting any subject classes. In particular, each Wednesday, regular school classes do not begin until 9 a.m. in order to permit time for Liturgy, Faculty/Club Meetings, tutoring, etc., between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. Each period is then proportionally shortened to guarantee all classes are being held.
