John Paul II Catholic High School, which will become an independent Catholic school on July 1, will reset tuition for the 2021-2022 school year. Tuition will be $7,500, more than 10% below the previously-announced intended increase to $8,450. The reduction in the price of tuition, combined with the NC Opportunity Scholarship and the Balot Family Scholarship, makes a JPII education more accessible for eastern North Carolina families who wish for their students to receive a college preparatory Catholic education.
“Private schools often use enrollment growth as a basis for increasing tuition and making it more difficult for students to get in,” Director of Admissions & Marketing Doug Smith said. “That approach is exclusionary. We want to use our growth to find ways to increase access to a JPII education for more families.”
In the fall of 2017, JPII had 58 students; now there are that many just in 9th grade and a total of 151 students. With more than 94% of eligible students to return already re-enrolled for next year, enrollment is expected to increase for the fourth straight year to around 200 students for the 2021-2022 school year.
Parents everywhere are concerned about their student(s) falling behind in remote learning and many feel like they cannot afford private school to provide them with in-person learning. If you are one of them and have an 8th, 9th, or 10th grader, you cannot afford not to explore if JPII is a good fit for your student(s).
