At St. John Paul II, we believe participating in sports helps learning. Exercise stimulates blood flow to the brain and has been shown to improve academic performance. Athletes also develop skills such as teamwork, self-discipline and communication—skills they will need for a lifetime.
St. John Paul II participates in the North Suburban Parochial School League (NSPSL) and competes against other Catholic schools. Fall sports are soccer and volleyball. In winter, basketball reigns. Spring features co-ed baseball.
