Peninsula Catholic truly prepares kids for the future emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. The kids, teachers, and staff are top notch! Best private school in Hampton Roads and affordable too.

I would not recommend attending PC, the only good thing about the school is the English department and Cross Country program. Almost all the teachers are close-minded and only choose to teach their opinions. The religion in the school is less... more

PCHS is making great strides to take what has always been a wonderful school and improve it to the SPECTACULAR! Much needed additions to the athletic fields and the recent addition of a 9-10th grade guidance councilor are all outward signs of this... more

this school has been wonderful for our boys. College prep is stressed, but every student feels like they have a say in the high school journey. The school has discipline and actions, enough to give students boundaries, such as hair length, skirt... more

About this school

PC is a college preparatory school whose students have found success beyond their high school years thanks to a strong foundation and high expectations. PC is proud of our Catholic roots, but warmly welcome students from all faith traditions. PS is dedicated to service in the local community, nation-wide, and across the globe. Last year, just over 300 students committed over 11,000 service hours and over $12,000 to those in need. Parents choose Peninsula Catholic because they are prepared to invest in their student’s future, even if it means financial sacrifice (especially in these difficult economic times). PC has a student body that is readily accepting of others and ready to help each other in any way they can. The faculty is dedicated to their students in the classroom and through their involvement with many extra-curricular activities. Each year the administration strives to incorporate new programs and enhance the current offerings so that students have the best chance of success once they leave the halls of PC. There is no doubt that Peninsula Catholic is the finest private school on the Virginia peninsula and this long-standing (108 year) tradition is proof of that.
