JPII Announces Merit Scholarship

​According to the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA), Catholic high school students have a 99% chance of graduating, and a nearly 85% chance of attending a four-year college. At John Paul II Catholic High School (JPII), we are proud that every one of our graduates has been accepted to college.

To bring these opportunities to as many deserving students as possible, John Paul II Catholic High School announces the JPII Merit Scholarship to help motivated and deserving 8th grade students in Pitt County Schools offset the cost of a Catholic high school education, and reap its benefits for the rest of their lives.
