Discover Your Best Self

The JPII program helps students develop their God-given potential – to be the best student, the best artist, the best writer, the best athlete, the best disciple, the best person – they can be.

Our curriculum features traditional liberal arts and the transferable skills of reading, writing, and speaking.  We know these skills allow students to excel and lead in the wide variety of circumstances their adult lives will entail.

Through great books, public speaking, and frequent and focused writing, JPII students develop a solid foundation that will set them apart on campus and in the workplace.  

More than a collection of academic subject areas, the JPII education shows and teaches Catholic theology, Church traditions and practices, prayer and moral decision-making, and the life of the Christian person in the modern world. 

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) study is critical, and JPII students have ample opportunity to explore these areas in courses such as AP Computer Science Principles, Principles of Engineering, AP Statistics, as well as through the full complement of traditional mathematics and science courses.

JPII teachers share a calling: to educate students in a rich tradition; to commission them to give witness to a shared vision of faith, hope, and love; and to prepare them for the world in which they will live, work, play, and pray.

They are dedicated and skilled.

And they love to teach.

Students receive a top-notch preparatory education where academic excellence founded on hard work and self-discipline are paramount. As a result, they are equipped to survive and thrive in their future pursuits.
