Thank you for your interest in Prince of Peace Catholic School, which we refer to as POP. Our vision of educating the ‘whole child’ began when our doors opened in the year 2000. We serve over 450 students, pre-k through 8th grade, focusing on the academic, spiritual, physical, social, and emotional needs of each child. We invite you to call or stop by at any time for information or to schedule a tour. You will find us conveniently located in Hoover, Alabama near all major highways (Rts. 150, 65, 31, and 459), just south of Birmingham, in a wooded neighborhood community. ( Map to School )
Our Church & School Relationship
Our church and school work together closely to provide the best education possible in the Catholic tradition. Academic and behavioral expectations are high and so are our students’ achievements. POP is fully accredited and has been named a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence for its outstanding performance. Prince of Peace has also been voted the Best Private School in Hoover as well as the Best Overall School in Hoover.
At POP, all are welcome. Our school family is religiously diverse and is comprised of Catholics as well as members of many other faith families. Parishioners, parents, and school administrators come together as a Formation Board to guide the church and school. The school PTO actively manages many of the yearly events and fundraisers that have kept our school growing year after year.
Please Visit Us
Prince of Peace is the largest K-8 Catholic School campuses in the Diocese of Birmingham. Our newest campus building is a stand-alone Middle School which opened Fall 2015. As our population of students increased in both the church youth programs and the school, the new building made way for more classroom space allowing us to maintain our preferred small class sizes.
Please schedule a tour to view our state-of-the-art classrooms, playgrounds, outdoor learning spaces, ball fields, elementary garden areas and more. Come see if our POP family is right for your family.
