We explore the lives and societies of history’s holy, wise, and influential men and women. This context provides students the tools they need to understand the Gospels, the saints, the writings of the Church, philosophy, literature, the process of discovery in science, the use of imagination and logic in problem-solving, and ultimately how to be tomorrow’s clear communicators, wise decision-makers, and holy saints who promote and defend the faith of Jesus Christ.


Partner professional teachers with parents to co-educate children intellectually and spiritually.

JPII’s hybrid academic program blends all the best aspects of traditional instruction with the benefits of home school days to provide an atmosphere where both academic and spiritual formation thrive. Our cooperative partnership with parents allows for a healthy balance between home life and school participation– truly the best of both worlds! 


Honor and uphold the family as the domestic church and its essential role in forming joyful Catholics and future saints.

At JPII, we honor families and support parents in their responsibility as primary educators of their children. Here, parents seeking to nurture their own holy families treasure the opportunity to maximize their time and influence with their children as they grow and mature.

St. John Paul II Preparatory School has been recognized by the Cardinal Newman Society as “an exemplar of faithful Catholic education.” Our school is listed in The Newman Guide, which has earned a trusted reputation for vigorously vetting Catholic colleges and has recently been expanded to include elementary and secondary schools.

This is the best thing that has ever happened to our family. Everyone should be so lucky.

I have always felt very blessed to have the 3-day model for my children’s education.  So many benefits … God is in the details even if we don’t see it.

Bonnie L.

A 5-star education and a giant leap going into college.

High School Parent

I just want to take a moment to say what an appreciation I have for the 3-day model here at JPII.  My son uses many of his home days to intern at Covenant Network and got to work the SEEK Conference for them.  He is gaining so much knowledge and skill beyond the books, not to mention confidence!
