At St. John Paul II, we provide a special place where your child can grow spiritually, physically and mentally within the tradition of the Catholic Church. Our school prepares your child for a lifetime of success.
Joanna Copenhaver, Principal

Our ultimate goal at St. John Paul II Catholic High School is to develop young scholars who are college-ready, independent thinking and problem solving within a framework of moral, ethical and spiritual growth.

Through our talented and caring faculty, the school will provide a well-rounded college preparatory curriculum in a small classroom setting. Your child will be encouraged to challenge themselves through honors, Advanced Placement, and Dual Enrollment opportunities. You can rest assured that they will receive individualized attention while they pursue the path that is most appropriate to their skill level.

No other high school in Tallahassee combines rigorous academics with guided spiritual growth and faith development in the Catholic tradition. Through required theology classes, weekly Masses, service projects and faculty-led retreats, our school seeks to teach and deepen the love of God and neighbor as revealed in Sacred Scripture.

Your child, regardless of whether or not they are a practicing Catholic, will learn to respect the value of prayer and Christian service, to respect others and to be Disciples of Christ at home, in school, and in the community.
