A quality Catholic preparatory school for grades 9-12

A Letter from the Principal

Thank you for your interest in St. John Paul II Catholic High School.  We consider it a privilege and a responsibility to help all our students prepare for success and develop their unique talents and gifts.  Our strong community of students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni and sponsors actively work toward realizing these goals for each individual in every aspect of his or her high school years - spiritual, academic, artistic and athletic.

St. John Paul II Catholic High School is a faith-based college preparatory secondary school, sponsored by the Diocese of Birmingham in Alabama.  The school primarily serves North Alabama, with students from Madison, Huntsville, Decatur, Athens and southern Tennessee.  We attract students from diverse backgrounds, giving the school a distinctive mix that reflects the rich variety of contemporary America.

Our focus at St. John Paul II Catholic High School begins with a foundation in faith, preparing our students to live spiritual, moral and ethical lives.  Academic excellence is an achievable goal, as each student learns and grows according to individual talents.  A competitive athletic program and specialized arts studies complement the academic curriculum.  A structured service program instills the value of community service, while numerous extracurricular activities offer learning and improve social skills.

St. John Paul II Catholic High School appreciates the importance of the high school experience and fosters a community that works hard, plays hard, and - most importantly - prays hard.  We encourage and challenge each student to learn enthusiastically, lead honorably and live responsibly in our world.

We look forward to sharing with you more about all of the exciting programs at St. John Paul II Catholic High School.

Sincerely,

Vincent Aquila, Principal
