“It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be ground down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal.” - Saint John Paul II


As quoted above, our namesake believed young people are called to do something great with their lives, and that is what our academic program reflects. Pope John Paul II Preparatory School provides a diverse educational program that balances rigor with exceptional support. Pope Prep embodies the optimistic belief that students can discover their unique God-given talents in our transformative program. Rooted in the Magisterium, each discipline teaches critical thinking skills that holistically help students develop an understanding of truth. Our extensive Advanced Placement program allows students to earn college credits in high school, with many entering college as sophomores. The Innovation and Entrepreneurship program also enables students to develop 21st-century skills and explore career paths to discover their calling. From our innovative classes to our Renaissance approach to the formation of the whole child, Pope Prep's excellent academics prepare students to succeed in college and become the servant-leaders of tomorrow.
