A Unique Experience Catholic Education
Dedicated to living faith in action, Saints John and Paul School has provided quality, affordable education to our community for over 65 years. The administration, faculty, parents and students work in Christian partnership to ensure an educational experience rooted in love, worship and concern for human values.
We endeavor to provide our students with opportunities to be respectful of all life, and practice Christian values through prayer, worship and service to others in our society. We believe that every child should strive to be not only a good student, but also a good person.
Striving to Succeed Academic Excellence
We are committed to academic excellence, which is overseen by exceptional, certified teachers, many of whom hold master’s degrees. We follow a comprehensive program that adheres to New York State Next Generation Learning Standards, as well as curriculum guidelines prescribed by the Archdiocese of New York. We also have one of the most technologically advanced resources in Westchester County, SMART Boards in every classroom, a comprehensive SAFARI Montage Video Library, and a 1 to 1 Chromebook program in Kindergarten to Eighth Grade.
Saints John and Paul School is committed to educating the whole child in mind, body and spirit. This complete and thorough approach to education, surrounded with a loving and nurturing environment, is the key to our highly effective learning. We challenge our students to reach their potential. We strive that every child will have the love to continue to learn on a daily basis.
It is our belief that each child is to be engaged in his or her learning with meaningful and relevant lessons that meet high academic standards. These high expectations drive our instruction with lessons that progressively build upon one another, preparing students to be successful in school and in life. Students at Saints John and Paul are well prepared for high school, and are accepted at all the highly competitive Catholic and non-Catholic high schools in the area. Not only are they accepted; they strive and are role models for other students.
Care for the Community Service Opportunities
Participation in community service projects builds strong character. Each year, our students reach out to numerous organizations in our area such as organizing a bi-weekly food pantry collection, coordinating gift card drives for the Little Sisters of the Poor, collecting food for Holiday Baskets for the hungry, and volunteering at the Hope Community Soup Kitchen, among many other deserving organizations.

“Almost everyday at morning prayers, students at SJP say a prayer: ‘Jesus before my eyes, Jesus in my heart, Jesus in my hands.’ This prayer helps us to understand what we need to do as disciples of Jesus. When we have Jesus in our eyes, we can see the good in people. We don’t judge people based on appearance, just as Jesus wouldn’t. To have Jesus in our hearts, we have to form an intimate relationship with Him through prayer and mediation. Having Jesus in our hearts means that when people see us, they can see the light of Jesus shining in us through our words and actions. Having Jesus in our hands means that we need to do works of charity carrying Jesus in our hands and bringing Him to others. SJP has taught us how to love Jesus in our hearts, Jesus is the cornerstone of my faith, but SJP has built on that cornerstone into a skyscraper that cannot be toppled.” -7th Grader
“Mrs. Howard, Thank you so much – and for everything over these last 9 years. I was just reminded of what my child’s experience could have been like in a big public school and am so grateful we took advantage of the “little Catholic school” down the road instead. Things sure ended w/a bit more excitement than anyone planned, but Mrs. Gianni’s and your leadership helped keep things as close to “normal” for these kids (and their families) as possible. At times, she and her friends seemed to forget what was going on in the bigger world – and that really says it all.” -Class of 2021 Parent
