Why Catholic Formation?
“Let it be known to all who enter here that Jesus Christ is the reason for this school, the unseen but ever-present teacher in all its classes, the model of its faculty, and the inspiration for its students.”
These powerful words, posted at the entrance of our school, beautifully and succinctly describe St. John Paul II Preparatory School.
At JPII, our curriculum advances the mission of Catholic education, with the faith informing all academic disciplines.
- The Catechism of the Catholic Church and Scripture are frequently referenced.
- Our textbooks reflect a Catholic worldview.
- Teachers employ a variety of methods to help students see their studies through the lens of the Catholic faith.
By combining the richness and traditions of the Catholic faith with the strength of a rigorous classical curriculum in a family atmosphere, we provide opportunities for students to encounter, develop and practice virtue in all circumstances of life.
Parents & Partners
At JPII, parents are partners with the school. The school climate reproduces the warm and intimate atmosphere of family life, which is not only nurturing but genuinely positive and supportive. All members of the JPII community strive for excellence in both human and Catholic formation. Prayer is a norm, and Masses and Reconciliation opportunities are frequent and reverent.
Here administration and faculty accept and promote the teachings of the Church and moral demands of the Gospel, actively participating in the liturgical and sacramental life of the school and viewing their positions as vocation rather than profession.
Ever alert for opportunities to integrate culture and academic content with faith, our faculty attempts to fully integrate their faith life with their daily tasks, imitating Christ, the true teacher, not only in their work but in the entirety of their lives and actions.
