Interim Principal
About Fr. Emmanuel

Welcome to St. John Paul the Great Academy!


Our new mission has sparked a new life into our little school. We’ve made some big promises and we are off to a great start. Our mission is to deliver outstanding academic and religious experiences, integrated into a challenging inquiry-based and intrinsic faith-building curriculum that will inspire and empower our students to achieve their highest potential of academic success, life-long community leadership and stewardship.


We have made a quality Catholic education available to all through our Just Tuition Model. Please visit our admissions page for details.



It is only by the Grace of God and with the continued support of our parish, teachers and Academy families that we have been able to provide our children with this exciting and dynamic new way of learning. One that integrates core subjects within a holistic system, steeped in the sound Catholic principles our parents gifted to us. Our goal? To produce well-formed grounded thinkers who will help to build our faith-based communities of tomorrow.


I invite you to contact us for further information on enrollment for your child.
