To be considered for enrollment at St. John Paul II Catholic High School, the following steps must be completed and submitted to the Admissions Office:

The Admissions Selection Committee will evaluate the applicant's potential for success at our school. Though broad based, this evaluation will consider primarily an applicant's academic, social and behavioral history. A student who is not passing all subjects with a grade of at least a 70 may not be considered for admission. Acceptance may be given with stipulations regarding academic, behavioral and social expectations to be met during the first semester of school or for any stated period of time. The decision of the school Administrator is final.
