Co-curricular activities

In this ever-expanding age of information through digital technologies, they believe that the ability to discern that which is of lasting value (wisdom) will be the most important attribute of their students for the future.  The world currently offers unfiltered information like water from a geyser that is both dangerous and fails to satiate.  They seek to form self-disciplined students that can drink deliberately from a discerned thirst-quenching well of worldly information all that is good, true, and beautiful through critical reasoning and grace.

Sports

The mission at St. John Paul II High School is to educate the whole person, and they believe that athletics plays a major part in our student’s development.  Their goal is to provide opportunities for all levels of student-athletes to participate in a variety of sports.

While they take great pride in their athletic accomplishments, much attention is paid to the academic and spiritual growth of our student-athletes.  Their hope is that their students, whether they are on the field or in the classroom, put forth their best effort and display the highest level of sportsmanship—thereby becoming the best version of themselves.
