About Us

We are 10 years old this year!

Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School is the newest Catholic high school in the Diocese of Arlington, and the only high school in the United States (possibly the world) to offer a 4-year bioethics curriculum separate from our religion curriculum.

Since opening in 2008, we have served more than a thousand students. Our students earn top SAT and AP scores, and our graduates attend the finest universities, including Ivy League schools, Catholic institutions, military academies, and others across the country.

Our 40-acre campus in Dumfries, Virginia, is more than just an impressive state-of-the-art facility; it is a place where students are challenged and nurtured academically, socially, and spiritually. It is a place where faith is lived and achievement is expected. 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 also 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.
