The Kennedy Catholic Family of Schools is a regional college preparatory Roman Catholic school system of the Dioceses of Erie from Preschool through 12. We are committed to providing spiritual inspiration, exceptional academics and extracurricular activities as all of us strive “to serve Christ” (Christo Servire)
The first years of life are very important to a young child’s growth and development.

The Joseph Family...
We couldn’t have asked for a better first school experience for our daughter. We truly feel confident that SJPII has set a solid foundation for learning in academics and in faith. The teachers and administrators were compassionate and professional and my child was excited for school every day!
Chris & Alison Joseph
I can’t say enough good things about SJPII. Mrs. Grasso and Mrs. Chiodo go above and beyond for my daughter. When you have a choice of where to send your child, the choice is easy. SJPII has given her a wonderful start to her education as well as establishing a great social foundation based in Faith.
