The idea to establish the St. Peter's Senior High School, Nkwatia started in 1956 when a delegation approached Fr. Cletus Hodapp of Society of the Divine Word Missionaries (SVD) with a proposal to establish a school in Nkwatia. After a meeting between the then Nkwatiahene, Nana Asante Yiadom III, and his elders, and Bishop Joseph Bowers of Accra, a decision was taken to start the school and the present location was given by the people of Nkwatia.

St. Peter's Senior High, Nkwatia Anthem

Youth of St. Peter’s
Our standard is raised
From East, North, West and South
True dignity of our human race
The school’s maxim the school’s motto must resound


Dignitati Hominum (2x)
True, to dignity
Of man, in all the world

Clad all of us
God with armour of truth
Gird us with love for our neighbouring men
Still us with virtue that governs our path
Cloth our hands with the honour of men
