Our Model

Saint John Paul II Preparatory School is a university-style education program. Our program includes a classical curriculum, character development, spiritual formation, and extracurricular activities.

Our academic program embraces the best aspects of traditional schools and the advantages of a home-school. Professional teachers instruct in their area of expertise and provide assignments Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, while on Wednesday and Friday parents continue instruction and monitor their student’s progress at home.  

 Our dual emphasis on the family and the school supports the natural role of parents and the educational needs of students. 
"Those in society who are in charge of schools must never forget that the parents have been appointed by God himself as the first and principal educators of their children and that their right is completely inalienable." - Pope St. John Paul II

A Catholic School Just For You

JPII is special.  Here 'Catholic' is the core of who we are and what we do.  Our Classical curriculum unites us with our brothers and sisters in Christ who have gone before us in centuries past and trains us to walk in their footsteps in the future.  And our cooperative, three-day-a-week model gives our students plenty of time with their first and foremost educators: their parents.

Our Catholic Faith

Our first and most important aim at JPII is to know, love, and serve God. All education, which is the pursuit of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty, is inescapably Christian in that all truth is God’s Truth. 

Preparing Each Student for Life

The primary goal of Catholic education is to prepare each student to glorify and honor God in all that he does, and achieve eternal life. 

The Role of Parents

Parents are God’s first plan for spreading the Gospel to children and forming young believers. 

The Role of Teachers

Teachers are hired by the school to exercise the unconditional love of Christ, expertise in the classroom, and leadership in the community.
