To facilitate a stronger JPII community, students (and their parents), faculty, staff, and coaches are members of one of four houses named for saints that our patron St. Pope John Paul II either canonized or beatified (below). The house system seeks to foster the community of JPII by providing opportunities for service, friendly competition, team-building activities, social events, leadership, and building school spirit. It is the mission of the house system to strive to give every member of the school community a place to belong, grow, and thrive. The house system also helps to retain the small community feel of our school as enrollment grows.
Students earn points by participating in JPII activities as well as when their actions and service to others exceeds expectations. Each quarter, the house that is leading the points competition is recognized and at the end of the year the house with the most points is named house champion.
How do students earn points?
There is only one way to lose points: discipline referrals.
Once a student is inducted into a house, they remain in that house throughout their years at JPII.
Each spring, each house elects representatives (rising sophomore through rising senior) to serve as house leaders for the following school year. These leaders are given leadership formation and the opportunity to develop their talents through event planning and management. House leaders strive to be role models of service, to use their gifts for the betterment of the school, and to engage and inspire all students to actively participate in our JPII community.
