Pope Prep Advantage

In its 20th year of operation, Pope John Paul II Preparatory School continues to provide a classical college preparatory education in the Renaissance model. We introduce students to the depth and breadth of a liberal arts education in a Christ-centered environment. At Pope Prep, all students are advised to experience curriculum, as well as co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, outside of one's comfort zones.

Pope John Paul II Preparatory School ranks among the top tier schools in the region. According to The Nashville Business Journal, our students have the highest average ACT scores in the city, only tenths of a point behind University School Nashville and Montgomery Bell Academy. NICHE rankings identify Pope Prep as the top co-educational Catholic high school in the State of Tennessee. 

While we are proud to receive these accolades, it is our privilege to be part of each student's academic and spiritual journey while in our care. It is a blessing to have amazing young men and women who are on a journey to becoming all that God intends. We hope that while on our campus, students meet Christ in the hallway, in the classroom, at the chapel, and in everyone they encounter.
