Welcome to St. John XXIII Catholic School

Port Washington Catholic School has a new name. We are thrilled to introduce St. John XXIII Catholic School! Our tri-cluster parish and school merged together under the new name of St. John XXIII Catholic Parish. Together we will build upon 163 years of Catholic education in Port Washington. Join us in celebrating our exciting, new, faith-filled community!

Building Foundations for a Lifetime

St. John XXIII Catholic School continues a 163-year tradition of instilling Catholic values and academic excellence for students and families in the community. Our faculty and staff are committed to building a solid foundation for life for students in grades Pre-3 through 8th grades. Our curriculum accommodates students' diverse learning styles and prepares them to excel beyond our doors using "real world" tools.

Our students fulfill their spiritual mission through service, compassion, and by example every day. At St. John XXXIII we believe that personal responsibility, high personal and academic expectations, and a strong values-based environment are imperative for academic success and a solid spiritual foundation. We believe in putting our faith in action each and every day in the classroom, on the playground, and at home.

Our students consistently achieve at the highest levels academically. In the last 10 years, eight of our alumni have been valedictorians or salutatorians at area high schools and over 85% of our alumni are consistently on area high school honor rolls. This year, 93% of our high school alumni seniors were on honor roll!

Our graduates continue to carry on the mission of our school by giving back to our religious and local communities in many different ways. They are becoming the responsible leaders of our future. 


The Year of Mercy

Now through November 20, 2016, is The Year of Mercy. During this time, we will be making additional efforts to call attention to and integrate corporal and spiritual works of mercy into our daily lives. We will join together through sacramental life of the Church and give mercy away through example.

Introducing St. John XXIII Catholic School

As of July 1, 2016, Port Catholic School is now St. John XXIII Catholic School! We are building upon the same outstanding education and family environment you have come to expect, just under the umbrella of our newly merged parish St. John XXIII Catholic Parish.

On July 1, 2016, St. Mary's, St. Peter's of Alcantara, and Immaculate Conception became one parish and have formally embraced our school as an extension of the parish mission. As such, the school name is now the same as our new parish name. Our logos have changed to reflect our new united identity.

Join our amazing faculty and staff in celebrating this exciting event!


Alumni Scholarships

Port Catholic and now St. John XXIII is thrilled to offer up to four $500 scholarships to its graduating high school alumni and current college alumni. This scholarship is available to those who demonstrate character and leadership qualities, who are performing well academically, and who demonstrate the importance of volunteerism. Thank you to all of our alumni who applied this year!
