Saint John Paul II Academy is a private school in Boca Raton that holds itself to an incredibly high standard in how it conducts its operations in accordance to its mission statement. Saint John Paul II Academy's adherence to the Lasallian tradition of education truly separates it from any other high school. Everyday, students are encouraged to take a greater responsibility for their own education, explore new service opportunities and immerse themselves in justice education, and gain a greater appreciation for diversity within their own community. Saint John Paul II Academy provides opportunities for students to explore different departments, with AP and honors level courses in 8 of their 9 departments for students to challenge themselves. In addition, the Dual Enrollment Program set up for students to earn university credit while at the academy creates pathways for students to continue their education at an even higher level than many high schools are able to offer. These programs allow gifted students to reach even higher, removing any limits that may exist on their education. Finally, student involvement is encouraged at Saint John Paul II Academy, with an incredible fine arts and athletics program and the necessary facilities provided to students to explore and grow in these areas.
