Overview

Mission Statement

Founded by the School Sisters of  Notre Dame, Saint Peter School lives and nurtures our Catholic faith while embracing  our multiculturalism. We believe in teaching to the mind, heart and soul of each child.

Background Statement

Founded in 1901 by the School Sisters of Notre Dame, Saint Peter School (SPS), in Cambridge, MA, honors its well-established reputation as an institution of distinction with an unwavering commitment to excellence. Today, it is the city’s last remaining Catholic grammar school. Inspired by our traditions and a dedication to innovation, SPS’s devoted and talented teachers serve approximately 240 students, pre-K through grade eight. Competing with the area’s public schools and larger, deeply endowed independent schools, SPS offers a well-rounded education, emphasizing rigorous academics and strong character development in an enriching, engaging and accepting environment. 



Impact Statement

Accomplishments in the past year include:

Fundraising provided tuition assistance to 40% of students and sufficient program scholarships to allow 100% participation in out of school enrichment trips to Nature's Classroom for Grades 5 and 7 and Washington, D.C. and Gettysburg for Grade 8.

Targeted Marketing and Admissions programs have increased enrollment 11% over the last 4 years. We have waiting lists for many grade levels.

Strong fiscal management and Advancement program have allowed us fully meet our expenses for the last 3 years. We are fully funding our operating budget through a combination of tuition and fundraising.

Establishment of a Technology Task Force to develop a plan for the implementation of a school wide technology solution including a transformation of the Library into a Media Center, professional development, and an out of school time solution for student access to technology.

 Goals for the current year include:

Obtaining grants to fund our programs through access to a wider base of financial support;

Continuing to access funding for our tuition assistance and scholarship programs to maintain our diverse student population;

Implementing our plan to transform the outdated Library space into a modern Media Center by adding technology, such as iPads and netbooks, and programming to support their use;

Enabling each student, regardless of ability to pay, to access and benefit from the same level of technology through our 1:1 implementation of netbooks in Grades 5-8.

Providing an Out of School Time solution for at risk middle school students who lack access to technology needed to complete homework assignments, who need additional support to complete assignments or who lack adequate supervision in the afternoons.

 

Needs Statement

Our mission is to provide our diverse student population equal access and opportunity for academic success through our Technology for All Program.  With 40% of our students receiving some form of tuition assistance and 15% of students with a Learning Difference or English Language Learners, we seek to restructure our programs to bridge the equity gap between students. Our program includes: the 1:1 implementation of net books in the middle school grades 5-8 (110 net books ($33,000) and 4 charging carts ($6,800) and a shared implementation of iPads for the lower grades (30 iPads and 1 charging cart $19,800) as well as the transformation of our current Library into a Media Center and purchase of assistive technologies for our LD and ELL learners ($18,000) for all grades for use both during and out of school time, while continuing professional development for our faculty to implement technology to support our program ($25,000). 


CEO Statement

With just one look at the student's smiling faces, you realize that St. Peter School is a very special place.  It's a place where children love to learn, make friendships, build character and expand their horizons.  Look even closer and you'll see that this modern school with traditional Catholic values has exceptional teachers, innovative programs, a very hands-on parent population and so much more.

 For more than 100 years, St Peter School has been a mainstay in its tight knit Cambridge neighborhood. Over that time its commitment to academic excellence, open and accepting culture, and relative affordability have made the school a valued resource for families from all ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds throughout Greater Boston.

 In particular, Saint Peter School is committed to ensuring that those students who need financial aid in order to attend St. Peter School are able to do so.  We have accomplished this through an annual  grant from
the  Catholic School Foundation and additional requests from our own donors.
    We have also made a commitment to ensure that the curriculum is accessible to all students including those with learning differences and IEP's.   We have done this by the addition of Special Education teachers. 

Board Chair Statement

I serve as the St. Peter School Consultative Board Chair. (While advising the Pastor and Principal, the Board does not have governance responsibilities.) 
Because I believe in the power and promise of Catholic schools, and I know the difference that St. Peter School (SPS) makes in the lives of so many students. I want to ensure that there is an SPS for generations to come. For years I have seen the successes that come from this center of academic excellence, where lessons of the mind, heart and soul inspire students, influencing them in life-changing ways. Allow me to share a few examples.

           

Recently, a 2009 SPS graduate who is currently a senior at a prestigious independent school addressed a packed audience at SPS. She eloquently told of how happy her middle school years were, thanks to her transfer to SPS. Challenged intellectually for the first time, she thrived. Headed to Brown University to study neurobiology, she traced her burgeoning love of the field to her days in the SPS science lab.

 

At a fundraiser last year, a poised young woman dazzled the crowd as she thanked SPS for the multiplicity of ways it had supported her as a student. It was difficult to recall that this confident accountant-in-training at Babson had faced tough times not long ago. Her single mother was enduring financial hardship; the student was struggling. But, as she recounted, SPS gave her a scholarship, dedicated teachers tutored her and friends helped her. She graduated with her class, succeeded in high school and flourishes today.

 

At another SPS gathering last year, a Harvard senior spoke of her pride in having graduated from SPS and how well it prepared her, academically and spiritually, for the road ahead. The teachers ignited her love of learning. And she spoke of her math and religion teacher who, during lessons involving current events, challenged students to examine the actions of others recalling the values they learned―and to examine their own actions. She still replays her teacher’s words and scrutinizes her own values and actions, especially now as she herself opens minds to learning as a member of Teach for America.

 

Most poignantly for me, everyday I am reminded of the effectiveness of an SPS education when I look at my own two sons, SPS alumni. My husband and I are deeply proud of the fine young men they have become. They are intelligent, thoughtful and compassionate, persons of faith, integrity and committed to social justice. We are especially proud that each of them has a circle of friends from a variety of backgrounds―racial, socio-economic, religious, ethnic. While attending SPS, our boys saw for themselves that different people had the same dreams for their children, and that all people have talent and potential to succeed. They witnessed terrific teachers respecting all students, motivating them to do their best, challenging them to develop intellectually, spiritually and personally.

 

Perhaps this was the most powerful lesson given to our sons: respect others, and live your life reflecting that value. I volunteer so that there will be, for years to come, an SPS where this lesson is taught and treasured.

Programs

1. Technology for All

Our social justice mission is to provide our diverse student population equal access and opportunity for academic success through our Technology for All Program.  With 40% of our students receiving tuition assistance and 15% of students with a Learning Difference or English Language Learners, we seek to restructure our programs to bridge the equity gap between students.   Each student in Grades 5-8 will be provided the same net book and assigned a G-mail address. We will provide equal access to learning through out of school time instruction to support at-risk students.  An updated Media Center in our current Library will combine traditional library resources with updated technology, out-of-school time programming and expanded learning opportunities including access to net books, iPads and assistive technologies such as audio/visual equipment for our ELL and LD students. We will also continue professional development for our faculty to implement technology to support our program.


Budget  130,000
Category  Education, General/Other Education & Technology
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) At-Risk Populations Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent
Program Short-Term Success 

The 1:1 implementation of the netbooks will eliminate visible resource inequity in the classroom and serve our goal of social justice.

Students will use net books to create new materials to prove mastery, collaborate with teachers and peers, and complete homework assignments.

Students will have more immediate feedback from their teachers and increased communication using Edmodo both at home and during class time.

Students will have access to a more interactive and personalized education.

Teachers will observe that the students are more engaged in the learning process.

Students (in particular, at-risk students referred by their teachers) will participate in the OST activities offered in the Media Center: homework support, book clubs, coding elective, etc.. Students will have a more structured afterschool time through access to the Media Center.

Students and teachers will use the newly created Media Center more often than they previously used both the computer lab and the library combined.  

Program Long-Term Success 

Students will integrate technology into their learning. Regardless of socioeconomic status, Learning Differences or English Language Learner status, each student will have equal access to learning facilitated through the use of technology during regular school hours and be productively engaged in our out-of-school time programs.

Students will graduate equipped with the skills to move onto competitive high schools, colleges and future careers.

Teachers will embrace differentiated, student centered instruction and deliver a personalized learning experience to all students, thus fulfilling our mission statement to teach to the heart, mind, and soul of each child. Students, parents, teachers, and administrators will collaborate using new technology to build community and grow as a community of life-long learners.

As our families become more digitally literate, they will use technology to further their child’s learning, promote creativity, and monitor social growth.
Program Success Monitored By 

Program success will be measured by three technology survey tools designed for the stakeholders: students, teachers and parents. (Surveys are attached)

Media Center usage will be tracked by sign-in sheets and Media Specialist notation of what student did in the Media Center i.e. research for paper, online research, accessed computer to write paper, accessed printer to print assignment, received homework support.

The amount of recorded student time spent in detention for non-completion of assignments will be reduced as students are supported in an academically enriching and supervised out of school time program in the Media Center.

At-risk students will be observed to have greater engagement in school as evidenced by greater success in completion of and higher quality of assignments and reduction of discipline for behavioral incidents.

Examples of Program Success 

The Social Studies curriculum will be 100% online: the text will be available as an E-textbook on the netbook, homework assignments, quizzes and tests will be given on the netbooks.

Teachers observe that at-risk students are completing a higher percentage of homework assignments due to the out of school time programming in the Media Center.

Special educators note that students in resource groups who have access to netbooks already are more organized and self-motivated. 85% fewer assignments get lost. Less time is spent dealing with technical problems like downloading versions of software, or finding a printer, and students are able to get directly to the core subject matter.

Teachers are motivated to attend GAFE professional development outside of school time in order to bring innovation to their students.

2. Advancement Program Update

It is the mission of the Advancement Program to gather the financial and community support so that we may continue provide an education that is rich in academic, extracurricular and spiritual opportunities for each of our students.   We have one full time Advancement Director who solicits parent and community volunteers to run the annual program which includes:  the publication of the annual Light on the Hill Magazine and Report of Gifts, an Annual Fund Drive, and three fundraising events: Oktoberfest, the Dare to Dream Auction and Gala and a Golf Tournament.  To continue and grow our program we need a back office overhaul including updated computer and software systems to manage the mailings, solicitations, gift reporting, gift acknowledgements, tracking and events management.  We need expert advice: a system analysis and process engineering recommendation, guidance on what systems would serve us best, as well as financial backing to purchase new software and computers.
Budget  20,000
Category  Education, General/Other
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent
Program Short-Term Success  An immediate improvement would be the implementation of a new software solution to eliminate wasted time moving information between 3 different standalone databases and excel spreadsheets.  
Program Long-Term Success  The long term success of the Advancement Program is measured by the increase in the amount of funding secured.  Funding is essential to meeting the needs of the operating budget of the school.  Fundraising allows us to keep tuition affordable for many families, to offer scholarship assistance to our economically disadvantaged students (currently 40% of our student population), to offer enrichment programs to all students, and to continue to make our education accessible to our diverse student body.  The improvement of our systems and equipment would free up much needed time to allow the Advancement program to concentrate on securing additional funding to meet our needs.
Program Success Monitored By  I know what is not working when my database crashes, fails to update or takes hours to do what I know may be done in minutes.  I see the process is broken when I must update 3 different databases instead of one unified solution.  There is a great opportunity cost when time is wasted trying to find a work around for malfunctioning equipment.  What is working well is demonstrated by the budget reporting income and expenses.  Despite the many problems with equipment and software, the Advancement Program has continued to grow its program over the last several years.  Evidence of that is clearly seen in the Annual Report of Gifts and Year End Budget Reports.
Examples of Program Success  For the last five years, the Advancement Program has raised between $300,000 and $410,000 to support the school operating budget and programs.  We have raised and distributed 1,000,000 in tuition assistance and scholarships alone in the last 14 years.  We are committed to lifting up students and their families through access to education.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

St. Peter School is committed to ensuring that all of its students are able to access the strong academic program that exists here at the school.  As part of this commitment we continually investigate our curriculum and what is needed to make it accessible to all of our students.

 As part of this investigation, we have seen that recent developments in technology have shown that netbooks are  important tools for students to use both during school and after school.  With an ipad, chromebook, or tablet students have immediate access to research on the internet, to connecting with their teachers and the class assignments that are on the Google Drive and to  creating powerful presentations to showcase their investigations.   
   Therefore, as part of our commitment to equity in accessing the curriculum, we must ensure that all students are using tablets, or chromebooks not just the few whose parents are able to afford to purchase individual tablets for each of their children. 
 
   Similarly we have made a commitment to ensuring that  the curriculum is  accessible to students with learning differences or documented disabilities.   For most of these students having  a chrome book or other netbook ensures that the they are better able to access the curriculum. 
  Finally, we have also discovered that we will be able to more efficiently update our curriculum through the use of netbooks. We will be able to update a science text, for example, by purchasing an e reader which is much more affordable than purchasing a textbook.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

Saint Peter School depends on tuition and advancement revenues.  Tuition, of course, depends on enrollment and enrollment is always a challenge.  Because of our location (close to Harvard and MIT and our urban setting with many apartments), we always have a number of families who come for a year or two and then leave. These families must be replaced just to keep our enrollment current.   Right now, enrollment is at capacity.  Likewise, our advancement program is currently a very strong one with an excellent advancement outreach.  However, in order to keep it successful, it requires a tremendous amount of effort and outreach each year.
 We have a number of opportunities which benefit the school.  We receive a  professional development grant from the city of Cambridge which allows us to provide good professional development opportunities.   We also have a strong School Board who supports us our efforts in a number of different ways.  Additionally, we receive financial aid money from the Catholic School Foundation which allows us to provide financial aid to those families who would not be able to attend without this support.
 
 

Foundation Comments

Financial summary data in the charts and graphs above is per the organization's internal income statements, as Saint Peter School is a part of the Catholic Church, under the c3 status held by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
 
Please note - While the organization holds a 501c3 status it is not required to file an annual return with the IRS because it is a church, as such, no Form 990s or Audits are posted above.
 
The asset and liability data above is per Saint Peter School, but due to the unique structure of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston (RCAB) as the Corporate Sole, major assets of land and buildings do not appear on the Saint Peter School balance sheets. That data is part of the financials of the Corporate Sole and can be found on the RCAB website.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

To provide our diverse student population equal access to technology through the 1:1 implementation of netbooks and the creation of a Media Center for all grades for use both during and out of school time while continuing professional development for our faculty to implement technology to support our program.
