Requirements

  • Students applying for admission in 1st through 8th grades must present a copy of the current report card and standardized test results and any IEP or 504 plan applicable for review and determination of whether our program will meet the educational needs of your child. An interview with the student is often part of the admission process.

Acceptance Criteria

We adhere to the following priorities in accepting students at SJPII as openings become available:

1. Siblings of currently enrolled students at SJPII 
2. Members of St. Anthony of Padua and Sacred Heart Parishes
3. Members of other parishes
4. Non-Catholic students

All new students enter a trial period in which to prove themselves both socially and academically. If during this trial period there are any serious concerns regarding a child’s safety, academic fitness, or general impact upon the learning environment, we may ask a student to withdraw his/her attendance at Saint John Paul II School.

We will admit non-Catholic students whose parents accept the philosophy of Saint John Paul II Catholic School on a space-available basis.

African-American and Native-American Scholarships

On behalf of the Diocese of Raleigh Office of African Ancestry Ministry & Evangelization (AAMEN) and Native American Catholic Community, we offer an opportunity for African-American and Native American students to apply for the Tuition Assistance Award. 

The funds for the awards come from the Black & Indian Missions grant awarded to the AAMEN office. Over the years, the office has provided funds to the Catholic Schools of the Diocese. For the past decade, the focus has shifted towards family assistance instead of schools; thus we encourage financially eligible families, regardless of school, to apply.
