General School Mission

"Pope John Paul II Catholic School is a traditional Catholic school, faithful to the teaching magisterium of the Church. We instill moral and intellectual virtues in a safe, nurturing environment for all students, and we dedicate ourselves to these principles:
God is the beginning and end of human existence.
Education is essentially a moral endeavor.
Parents bear primary responsibility for the education of their children.
The subject of education is the student.
Teaching is an intimate communication between souls.
