Using the best practices developed over the years at St. JPII Catholic School, the faculty will continue to adhere to the instructional goals that set all children up to become “joyful learners”.

Our families at St. John Paul II Classical Catholic School can expect that their child will be taught the “how” and the “why”, and not just the “what”, while meeting each child at the level they learn.

Teaching is not telling. It is giving students tools for discovery by guiding them to cultivate a deeper level of thinking and develop a love for God and His Word.

What makes it Classical?
