The college is broadly organized into seven undergraduate departments and one graduate division at its main (Guzman Street) campus, with each college and the graduate division defining its own admission standards and academic programs in near autonomy. The college also administers one satellite Basic Education Campus at Ulas, Davao City. Of its seven undergraduate colleges, five offer degrees in the health sciences. These are the departments of Nursing, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Respiratory Therapy, and Medical Technology. SPC's graduate school offers two doctorate programs, one master in nursing program, and five master of arts programs.

Since its founding, San Pedro College has been a coed, Catholic institution where admission has not been restricted by gender, race or religion (despite being a Catholic institution). The student body consists of nearly 7,000 undergraduate and 100 graduate students from all over the country, but majority of the student population comes from Mindanao particularly Davao City, where the school is located. BEC enrollees total to around 4,000.

In 2012, San Pedro College opened its Ulas Campus at Ulas, Davao City for School Year 2012-2013.

Last August 2016, San Pedro College adopted the North American academic calendar, with the school year beginning in mid-August and the second semester starting on a late January or early February. Academic years are expected to end at June.
