About Us

Our Vision

Peninsula Catholic High School will remain true to its core beliefs as a Christ-centered school rooted in the richness of Catholic tradition committed to developing young men and women who are morally and intellectually inspired to lead in a diverse and global society.

Our Mission

Our community develops young men and women into spiritually, intellectually, and morally mature citizens, prepared to lead in a global and diverse society, by providing a supportive and disciplined college preparatory environment rooted in the Catholic tradition.

Our Philosophy of Learning

Learning is not only the acquisition of knowledge but also a change in behavior based on that knowledge.  At Peninsula Catholic, the purpose of learning is to enable students to solve problems, predict consequences, and make appropriate life choices so that they can become contributing members of the faith community.

Peninsula Catholic is AdvancED accredited and the Diocese of Richmond is AdvancED accredited as a school system.

AdvancED is the largest community of education professionals in the world. They are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. While their expertise is grounded in more than a hundred years of work in school accreditation, AdvancED is far from a typical accrediting agency. Their commitment is to help all schools continually improve.

Combining the knowledge and expertise of a research institute, the skills of a management consulting firm and the passion of a grassroots movement for educational change, AdvancED serves as a trusted partner to 34,000 schools and school systems—employing more than four million educators and enrolling more than 20 million students—across the United States and 70 other nations.
Peninsula Catholic High does not discriminate in admissions on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, or national origin.
