Pope John XXIII Regional High School http://www.popejohn.org, founded in 1956, enrolls approximately 935 students in grades 9 through 12. This Catholic School, in cooperation with the family, the parish, and the local community aims at the realization of each student’s potential as a Christian individual living in society, capable of performing a meaningful role in the context of the family and the community.
The Chapel and Sculpture Park create a spiritual hub at the center of the busy high school campus. The Chapel is a double height space with a magnificent stained glass window displaying an image of Jesus as a teacher. The other three walls of the chapel open to the exterior with large cruciform widows that embrace the inhabitants of the space.
