About SJP2


In 2012, Saint John Paul II Catholic School became under the direction of the Diocese of St. Petersburg. By challenging our students to reach their full God-given potential, SJP2 helps every child develop a spirit of love, service and respect. Our school community provides a nurturing environment where teachers care about each student’s development. Inspired by Saint John Paul II and rooted in the Catholic faith, our mission is to develop young people who strive for academic excellence, recognize the dignity of each individual and foster service to others.
