history of prince of peace catholic school
Prince of Peace Catholic Community (POP) was founded in 1991 to serve as a parish home for Catholics living in the West Plano area. Since its inception, the church community has been blessed with the leadership of the late founding Pastor Monsignor R. James Balint. Through his leadership, Prince of Peace Catholic School opened in the fall of 1991 with 39 students. Construction began on our current facilities in 1993 and was completed the following year.
Prince of Peace Catholic Community is currently led by Father Tom Cloherty as Pastor and Father Stephen Ingram. Prince of Peace Catholic School is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Dallas. The Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops Education Department (TCCBED), approved by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), and AdvancEd accredits our school. The reaccreditation process was most recently completed in 2015.
