Profile of the JPII Graduate at Graduation

Consider the following description a profile of St. John Paul II High School graduates.  Not an idealized vision of “perfect” students, but the real lived skills, qualities, attitudes, and knowledge resulting from our programs.  Our profile is comprised of five key facets of the human person: intellectual formation, character development, education for leadership and citizenship, service to others, and spiritual formation.

Profile of the Graduate at Graduation
Hayley Tierney

"As students in a Catholic school, we are all called to openly share in faith, but the reality is that it’s hard. Being open about your faith is not easy. One of the best parts about being a student at JPII is that you grow in your faith whether you realize it or not. Our school’s mission statement calls us to the “pursuit of truth through faith and reason.” This very thing happens before our eyes. Growing in faith is subtle and that’s the beauty of it. I can honestly say that without my time at JPII and the relationships I have formed, I wouldn’t be as grateful for my faith as I am today. That subtle push to do the right thing, the sense of comfort in the little things, and the feeling of bliss we get when we talk to our favorite person are all examples of how I have seen God work in our school. We are truly blessed to go here."

Christopher Bresnahan

“At JPII, I have received a challenging education and the skills needed to thrive beyond high school. The school teaches students how to be successful, provides a caring community, and instills the value of hard work. Most importantly, we learn the Catholic faith. Graduation isn’t an end, but an invitation to the plan that God has set for us. I am excited to see that plan in the next four years at Providence College.”

Victoria Butler

“I found a sense of family when I became a part of the JPII community. It becomes a part of who we are. Our teachers do not just want us to receive good grades but to really learn what is being taught to us. Teachers make the extra effort and because of this, I was able to excel in those classes and even help other classmates as well. Even more, JPII allowed me to integrate my faith into all aspects of life. I have not only become more motivated to practice my faith, but I have also encouraged others to seek out their own faith journey. Without JPII school, I wouldn’t have had these life-changing experiences.”
