About the School


“Caring for a child is the first and fundamental test of the human-human relationship”
(Pope John Paul II. New York: October 2, 1979)


John Paul II Supplementary Polish School was founded in March of 2006 as a non-profit organization to develop creative and challenging curriculum for children of Polish heritage. The program will help them develop awareness and understanding of Polish language, religion, culture, and history.

We are committed to promoting loyalty to America and to being proud Polish-Americans in Our Community. We are dedicated to fostering a sense of community, cultural identity and Heritage. To carry out our mission, we have a voluntary active Board of Directors to coordinate activities.

About Us

Our school invites children to learn Polish language, religion, history and Polish culture every Saturday from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm through the school year.

Our school is a non-profit educational institution, and one of approx. 200 Polish schools in the USA. It was established by parents who desired a place for their children to learn about Polish culture, language, history, geography, literature and tradition. Our school is an institution for children and youth, and it works thanks to our families. Our parent volunteers are an integral part of the school as well and help ensure the care and safety of students during breaks and meals. They also help us in organizing school events and contribute with their talents to the enrichment of our Children. Let this school be the school of our dreams and a meeting place for friends.
