About Us

John Paul II Catholic High School Mission Statement

John Paul II Catholic High School embraces the mission of Jesus Christ: to form men and women of faith, knowledge, and service in church and community. Within the tradition of Catholic education and faith we build character through the development of the whole person in mind, body, and spirit and instill a commitment to lifelong learning.

The importance we place on the education of a student in every aspect of their person rather than solely academically lies within our values grown from the catechesis of the Catholic Church:

“…the totality of the Church’s effort to make disciples, to help people believe that Jesus is the Son of God so that believing they might have the life in his name, to educate and instruct them in this life, thus building up the body of Christ.”

Values of the JPII Calling

​In support of this purpose, the board, faculty, staff, students, and their families are committed to:

  •  provide a high-quality learning environment characterized by intellectual inquiry for all students regardless of creed, ethnic, racial, social, or economic state
  • deliver a broad and integrated academic curriculum in a small classroom setting
  • develop genuine personal relationships and reinforce the unity of students’ families
  • create a climate for students characterized by high expectations, mutual respect, compassion, and support
  • foster an active faith community identified by witness to Gospel values, prayer, and service
  • teach students to work actively to improve the quality of life within their communities and churches through the use of their gifts in the service of others

The Hallmarks of the JPII Identity

Our Catholic identity is defined by the values that flow from our mission statement, and comprise JPII’s unique learning lifestyle. We hope you will join us and engage with our respective lives, faith, and community in illustrating the impact a Catholic education can make. Celebrate with us as we embrace the values and ideals found in educating the mind, body, and spirit of students to serve their world to the best of their potential abilities.
