International Student Program

JPII Welcomes International Students

Thank you for your interest in Pope John Paul II High School.  Our mission is to provide a Catholic secondary education within a challenging academic, spiritual, and co-curricular environment that will develop young men and women who are intellectually strong, spiritually alive and committed to serving the needs of others.  Sharing this mission with international students while fostering the cultural interchange among our students and international students is an incredible asset to a college preparatory education.  We are pleased you are considering joining our school family.

In the past we have welcomed students from China, Germany, and South Korea.  We look forward to welcoming students from any country as we continue to broaden our cultural exchange.
