The Meifert Family
We have been a part of St. Peter for 12 years. We found St. Peter as we were searching for a faith-based preschool in Monument for our oldest daughter, Abby. We had every intention of moving her to one of the local charter schools for elementary school. God had other plans for our family! Our preschool experience was so fantastic that we decided to keep her in the school and later enrolled our other kiddos when they reached preschool age.
We are a Protestant family but I (Melissa) attended Catholic school and have been a Catholic school teacher. Our children have learned Bible-based and virtue-based education. They have been able to talk about God in school and have never had issues with being Protestant in a Catholic School. They have been loved and supported like all other students.
Our children have been nurtured and loved by the St. Peter family. Abby, now 15 and a sophomore at St. Mary’s High School, graduated from St. Peter in 2018. Her school experience has always been challenging as she struggled with reading. The support that she received from the interventionists, her teachers and the principal was overwhelming. Jack will graduate this year and has been encouraged to be a leader during his time at St. Peter. He is challenged and was able to enroll in a High School Geometry class this year to continue to advance in Math. Sarah is in second grade and has been encouraged and loved as she is timid in the classroom. She has developed a love of learning because of this encouragement. I am now in my third year of teaching at the school and currently teach Middle School Literature. St. Peter Catholic School has been a blessing to our family and we could not be happier with the environment our children are able to learn and grow in everyday.
