The new model of Catholic education in Torrington was instituted in September 2005. St. Peter/St. Francis School was created with grades Pre-K through 2nd educated at the St. Peter campus an grades 3-8 at the St. Francis campus. Each building retained its own principal, school board, Home and School Association, and financial records. In February 2007 Archbishop Henry Mansell announced that St. Peter/St. Francis School, would be one school with two campuses. There was one school board, one Home and School Association, and one Finance Committee that oversaw financial records. As a result of the NEASC Accreditation in 2008, it was recommended that all students be educated at our current location, St. Peter/St. Francis School. In 2015 the Office of Education, Evangelization and Catechesis recommended the implementation of the multiage model. It was decided that Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten would remain stand-alone classes while students within the age ranges of 1st grade through Junior High would engage in the multiage model. St. Peter/St. Francis School remains committed to the Catholic education of the youth in the Torrington area. In addition to offering a strong academic foundation to the students, the school integrates the values and truths of our Roman Catholic Faith into the daily curriculum. The students at St. Peter/St. Francis School are challenged academically and enlightened spiritually while learning to respect and serve others. In 2017 the Torrington Cluster of Roman Catholic Parishes became St. John Paul the Great Parish as per the Archdiocesan Pastoral plan. St. Peter/St. Francis School retained its name.
