Our Mission

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. St. John Paul II’s pre-k and mini programs provide a safe, secure, creative learning environment for your child to learn and grow. Through structured and supervised play, children will have the opportunity to develop their potential for intellectual, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual growth.

Our daughter Giada started preschool this year at SJPII. The preschool has a lovely team of friendly, dedicated and experienced childcare professionals who are committed to developing every child’s individual potential.
