Welcome to Port Catholic (soon to be St. John XXIII)

Port Catholic celebrates its 26th year of providing a child-centered, faith-filled learning community where Catholic values are lived and taught. Our commitment to academic excellence promotes student success. Every child is nurtured, challenged and known as an individual.

Building Foundations for a Lifetime

Port 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. Port Catholic's 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 Port Catholic 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 nine years, six Port Catholic alumni have been valedictorians or salutatorians at area high schools and over 85% of PC alumni are consistently on area high school honor rolls. This year, 93% of our high school alumni seniors are on honor roll!

Our graduates continue to carry on the mission of Port Catholic 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.

We Are Becoming St. John XXIII Catholic School!

Port Washington Catholic School will have a new name as of July 1, 2016. We are on the verge of greatness as we become St. John XXIII Catholic School! We are building upon the same outstanding education and family environment under the umbrella of our newly merging parishes.

On July 1, 2016, St. Mary's, St. Peter's of Alcantara, and Immaculate Conception will become one parish and have formally embraced our school as an extension of the parish mission. As such, the school name will be the same as our new parish name. 

Join our amazing faculty and staff in celebrating the merger of our three parishes into our new parish and parish school St. John XXIII!

Watch for emerging details and celebrations in the next month.
