Study Skills

A JPII education provides students with the skills necessary for success. In
particular, the Grade Five study skills course teaches organization, study habits,
test-taking skills, and habits of academic integrity. These techniques are reinforced
throughout the curriculum, ensuring that students are well prepared for academic
success now and in the future.

Student Services

Students with learning differences deserve full access to a high-quality Catholic
education. St. John Paul II School can meet the needs of many students with
mild to moderate learning disabilities such as ADHD, reading and mathematics
disabilities, and certain physical and emotional health challenges.

Faith Family Academics Athletics

Faith forms the cornerstone of your JPII
experience. You will build a stronger faith in
yourself, in your school, in your coaches, and your
teammates. Ultimately, you’ll see faith in God
above all things. JPII athletics is a family, too.
You will build relationships, be taught to
communicate, learn to be forgiving of others,
support others and be supported by them, and
learn to lead.
Academically, athletics are an extension of
the classroom. Daily attendance, punctuality,
preparation, participation, and working together
help you in both school and sports.
You will be challenged to be the very best that
you can be – the best athlete, the best teammate
and, most importantly, the best person.

Mission Statement

The school is a caring community that embodies the Gospel of Jesus
Christ and teaches the faith and practices of the Catholic Church.

An educational ministry of the Diocese of Fall River, the school serves
students and families of all faiths across Cape Cod, the Islands, and
southeastern Massachusetts who seek distinctive co-educational middle
and high school Catholic education. Through strong relationships and
worthy example, the school recognizes students’ gifts, develops their
potential, and inspires their pursuit of truth through faith and reason.

Statement of Philosophy

Our school embraces the teaching of the Catholic Church, which recognizes parents as the primary
educators of their children. As such, it is important to articulate the mission, philosophy, and vision
of the school so that parents can understand our approach and determine if the school best fits their
family goals. Our school philosophy is based on five fundamental values.

Opportunities to Grow and Thrive

The school’s philosophy of challenge and
support is equally operative in the athletic,
performance, artistic, and other co-curricular
endeavors. Students are provided opportunities
and encouraged to explore new dimensions
of themselves in an environment designed for
appropriate risk-taking and growth. We believe
in maximizing options and activities so that
students are not “waiting in line” and as a result,
more readily grow through new endeavors.
