“Queen of Peace” high school is an all-girl Catholic college prep high school sponsored by the Dominicans of Sinsinawa. The aim is to help diverse young women develop the necessary skills to excel in an increasingly global and competitive world.
“After 50 years, a lot may have changed in the world, but at “Queen of Peace”we continue to be inspired by the values established by the Dominicans of Sinsinawa: truth, justice, compassion, partnership and community,” said Anne O’Malley, a 1975 graduate and current president of Queen of Peace. “These core values are what differentiates us and makes Peace such a special place.”
“Queen of Peace” integrates strong academics with a holistic approach to learning in small classes designed for personal attention. Cutting-edge learning opportunities include the 1:1 laptop program, expanded AP course offerings, and real-world prep classes such as computer repair, pre-engineering, digital photography, and business entrepreneurship.
Peace students may also choose from a wide variety of clubs, music, dance, band, and performance opportunities as well as a spirited and competitive sports program. The Peace girls turn their faith into action providing helping hands to many community organizations. “Queen of Peace” students build relationships that last a lifetime and uncover new passions and career paths.
