Mu Alpha Theta

Our purpose is to stimulate interest in mathematics by providing public recognition of superior mathematical scholarship and by promoting various mathematical activities. Topics presented during club meetings and interest generated therein help members to gain a greater understanding and enjoyment of mathematics.

Music Ensemble

Our goal is to promote, enhance, and maintain students’ music appreciation and musical skills and styles. Members will develop better intonation, perform as a small ensemble, and become more comfortable performing in public, assisting with the Liturgical music for our school Masses. The ensemble practices weekly and hopes to include new and different songs as part of our school Masses. Any student who already plays an instrument or would like to join the vocal section is encouraged to enlist!

Robotics

Saint John Paul II Academy's Robotics Club (Team 9207) is now in its 3rd year. The school's team is a member of FIRST, an international organization which promotes Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) through various Robotics challenges. SJPII is involved in The FIRST Tech Challenge, a game mode for Middle to High School students. Since its creation in 2014, Team 9207 Skynet has participated in several FTC tournaments as a part of one of South Florida's Regional Leagues in Palm Beach. Each year through hard work and dedication, the team has qualified for The League Championship. In 2016's League Championship, the team received the honor of competing in the final rounds of the tournament. Their efforts resulted in a 2nd place finish and an Alliance Finalist trophy. The team also won back to back Think Awards for their engineering notebook, a compilation of the team's business plan, game strategies, robot designs, meeting minutes, and team information. This particular award highlights the team's ability to model an authentic engineering process reflective of what happens at real world engineering companies. One of the most important elements of FIRST is the spirit of gracious professionalism which is infused within all the efforts of FIRST teams. It promotes teamwork, kindness, professional behavior, and the idea that all teams should work together to meet their various goals -  these values are very important, and they reflect the virtues emphasized in Catholic education. 

SADD Club

S.A.D.D. stands for Students Against Destructive Decisions.

Our chapters motto is: "Be happy at SADD!" We meet the first Wednesday of the month.

Science Club

Our mission is to engage students in service activities as “stewards of the earth” by a school-wide recycling program of paper and plastic/metal/glass and by participating in the annual mangrove cleanup in Boca Raton.
