Druid Hills Partnership

Since 2011, St. Peter parish has partnered with Druid Hills Academy, a Pre K -8th grade school located near downtown.  Druid Hills has been designated a 100% poverty school.  Our mission is threefold: to support the students, teachers and staff, and families of Druid Hills through many initiatives.
