In one of the most dynamic and growing areas in the country, St. John Paul II Catholic High School (JPII) is also growing and expanding. Operated by the Diocese of Birmingham and a Board of Trustees, JPII offers students a faith-based college preparatory high school curriculum and environment. We serve a growing, diverse and dynamic student body from North Alabama, Southern Tennessee, and abroad on a 55-acre campus surrounded by Research Park, a center for space aeronautical and bio-medical research. Recently, the educational organization NICHE rated JPII as the best Catholic high school in the state of Alabama for the past two years and the sixth best private high school in the state. Other notables include last year’s ACT average score of 26.1 (state and national averages are 18.9 and 20.8 respectively); AP test scores that include 34 AP scholars; and $9.7 million in merit college scholarships. Thus far, this year, we have 7 National Merit Scholars, including 3 semi-finalists; won our first team state championship in Class 4A boys cross country; and have numerous accomplishments in the fine arts, including 10 state qualifiers for the Trumbauer Festival.
