Saint John Paul The Great Catholic High School Home

Mission statement

In accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church and in the Dominican tradition of prayer, study, community, and service, Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School is a college preparatory school committed to the ethical formation of youth in the pursuit of Veritas (Truth).
In order to carry out our mission to pursue Veritas (Truth), we:
Center all we do on Jesus Christ, “the way the Truth and the Life”(John 14:6). 
Pray together as a school community and deepen our personal relationship to Jesus Christ and his Church.
Study with academic rigor, preparing our students for college and life, discovering the beauty, goodness, and truth in God’s creation.  In particular, through the study of Bioethics, we teach the implications of the fundamental truth of the dignity of each human person, created in the image and likeness of God.
Based on these truths, we build community and serve one another in imitation of Christ.
Saint John Paul the Great is a high school of the Diocese of Arlington, founded under the leadership of now-retired Bishop Paul S. Loverde. To learn more about the Catholic Diocese of Arlington, and our new shepherd, Bishop Michael Burbidge, please visit:
