About Us

We are 11 years old this year!

Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School is the newest Catholic high school in the Diocese of Arlington.  We are college prep and the only high school in the United States (possibly the world) to offer a 4-year bioethics curriculum separate from our religion curriculum.  While we have three levels of courses (academic, advanced, honors/AP), all of our classes are taught with rigor to ensure our students are truly ready for college.

Since opening in 2008, we have served more than a thousand students. Our students earn top SAT/ACT and AP scores, and our graduates attend the finest universities, including Ivy League schools, Catholic institutions, and military academies across the country.   Click here for listings of each graduating classes’ college acceptances.

Our 40-acre campus in Potomac Shores, Virginia, is more than just an impressive state-of-the-art facility.  Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School is

  • a place where students are challenged and nurtured academically, socially, and spiritually
  • a place where faith is lived and achievement is expected
  • a place where our students are prepared to succeed in higher education and in life

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about who we are, but please come visit us soon. Attend our Open House, an admissions tour, or one of our home games. Meet our exceptional faculty, interact with our friendly students, and discover the John Paul the Great difference.
