 Senior at Naperville North High School 
  • Tennis team as Junior and Senior
  • Traveled to London, Paris, and Rome through the NNHS English department last summer

College Plans:
  • I have applied to and been accepted to Loyola University (Honors Program), Michigan State University, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (Honors Program), and Emerson College. I am leaning toward attending Loyola University, but I have not made a definitive decision. I plan to major in English with a possible minor in French. 
Career Goals:
  • I am interested in becoming a lawyer, but I have no set career goals at this time. 
How my Catholic faith resonates with me today as a teenager:
  • My faith guides my morality every day to make good decisions and has been a source of strength when challenged. I am drawn to the Jesuit education offered at Loyola that promotes ethical and spiritual values. The virtue of charity has motivated me to volunteer at Edward Hospital and continue t o give back to my community. 
What I learned at SSPP that has helped me in high school:
  • I have learned how to manage my time and adopt strong writing and verbal skills. Reading at Mass at an early age and participating in 8th grade Literary Debates were great public speaking opportunities that gave me confidence and have proved valuable in high school. 
Teacher at SSPP who had the most influence on me:
  • The teacher who influenced me the most is Mrs. Skroch. She was honest in what she expected, a good role model and one of my more challenging teachers. 
SSPP experience that I cherish:
  • The 7th grade Timber-Lee trip and all of the 8th grade activities (Graduation, Confirmation, May Crowning) are memories I will always cherish. Junior High volleyball was also a great experience. 
Advice for current students:
  • Don't procrastinate. The hard work you put in high school will pay off and present multiple opportunities for your future.  Don't forget to take care of yourself

Your support of our Annual Fund Drive is needed?  
The goal in gifts from school parents this year is $55,000.


Our 26th annual school auction, scheduled for Saturday, March 16, is taking us back to our roots and will be held in our gym just as it was back on January 29, 1994 when this event was first held. 



When our school was founded in 1853....

.....people didn't have the option of going to the store and buying sliced bread.  Otto Frederick Rohwedder of Davenport, IA invented the prototype for the first single loaf bread-slicing machine in 1912.  That model, however, was destroyed in a fire and it was not until 1928 that Rohwedder had a fully working machine ready.
